I don’t see where I can control the order statuses in the admin.

It would be nice to have configurable statuses, to add new ones and change the names.

Yes, I rely heavily on this in my current (osC) store. in my case, I use it to split out shipment batches (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) since we havespecific needs (live plants).

Not quite sure what this post originally meant, but I’d like to add a little suggestion in terms of the Order Statuses.. Rather than have a drop-down, perhaps a button to change the status would be more efficient in terms of processing, less clicks and movements and more streamlined. Nothing big, but just a very small UI suggestion.

If you have a button for each status, this might be fine if you have 4 statuses. But this would be unnecessary for some, who might have 10 statuses. This is why M is flexible enough for you to customize this as an option, given you know how. I don’t know how off-hand, but I do know it’s possible.

Regarding updating of statuses, I believe that you can only do this by editing the database directly. Not sure though if it’s been added in the latest version.
