Do you have tasks in statuses that shouldn't be considered started yet? Use "Not Started" statuses to separate statuses like Open, Backlog, Pending, and more!

By enabling the Not Started Status Group ClickApp, you can differentiate between work that has started versus not started throughout your Workspace.

Expand your workflow by adding the Not Started group to the 3 existing groups in ClickUp:

  1. Not Started

  2. Active

  3. Done

  4. Closed

Having tasks with a Not Started status allows for more flexibility when it comes to reporting. You're able to have multiple statuses before actually moving a task into an Active state, giving you more accurate reports for things like Cycle Time.
