To edit a configured status, you will need to go to Configurations > General Shelter > Processing > Status Manager.
You will be able to edit a status that currently doesn't have animals in it by selecting the "Edit" action button and saving that edited status.
If you try to edit a status that currently has animals in it, you will receive this error message:
If you need to edit a status that currently has animals in it, you will need to move the animals out of that status temporarily (or permanently, if you are deleting the status) by following these steps:
- Create a new status called "Temporary" from Configuration > Processing > Status Manager. Be sure this status is set to Yes for In Custody.
- Go to the main animals list. Move all animals out of the current status and into the "Temporary" status as a batch by using the status filter and Edit Multiple tools. This will be much faster than updating each individual status.
- Now that animals are out of the status you need to edit, go back to Configuration to edit the status and save.
- Go back to the main animals list. Move all animals in the "Temporary" status back to the status you edited by using the filter and Edit Multiple tools again.
Note: You can choose to keep the "Temporary" status for future status edits or delete it and re-create it if you need it for future use.
