Custom order statuses
Administrator should be able to create own statuses for orders and determine the rules of their shifts. Good to give the administrator more control over the order (change the status from any to any)
I can work efficiently when everything is sorted out properly (for example, in Excel I usually have a lot of tabs and colors))). And i want my order grid well organized, so easy change of order statuses is vital for me. I use this extension to do that - http://amasty.com/order-status.html

If you're having trouble assigning order statuses, this extension helps. It lets you bypass the normal flow in Magento and assign an order status/state at any stage of the order.

I see this feature is available in Magento back-end. Administrator is able to edit status of customer's order at his convenient. However, it could be lack of other custom abilities so it would be great if there is a module like that.

It's already done in 1.5.1 version.
Hello. We've released Order Status extension, which supports magento 184.108.40.206 and all newer versions. Please have a look at http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/Amasty/extension/4383/order_status. Your comments welcome.
Where on Magento connect, the module we are using from connect does not support the creation of custom status' only extended.
Hi Guys. I created the custom status extension. I'm not a developer though ... I am going to create a Donate button, and when the value reaches high enough, I will hire a developer to create it and release it as open source.
End clients really want this status , and there should in built features to add status as oscommerce have.

I was quite stunned when i found out rater late in the process that where is next to no options regarding order status. Now how can there be a shop system like this without i don't get it??. WE NEED THIS NOW!!!
I am using the Connect addon for this which is good, but not quite flexible enough. What would also be great is to use the mass add, for custom status. Being a company that processes more than 150 orders aday we have to use our own code. But would be great if custom statuses could also be added on mass.
Yes I agree as well. The extension is nice, but it doesn't provide full functionality. To me, this is a very basic, essential part of any ecomerce system. OsCommerce has this and we got used to doing it like that.
In magento connect is only 1 extension that makes a 5% of our needs. We need additional 95%...
The goal of needs is: before startup admin will setup statuses and define processes, that will be executed by changing statuses. And define stutuses changing rules.
If i dont need Shipping status i will delete it, but i cant. It's a part or bizness process definet by magento nad if i don't ship items i can't complete orders and see reports.
this is already available...check magento connect
I agree that we need to have a more flexible order status but we also need there to be standard business process and flows documented. Moving an order from completed to new would be a nightmare for reconciliation and accounting.
Good idea - my vote added
