I am creating a new Status type for the Order object. However it's asking me to select a "Status Category" and the options listed there are "Draft" and "Activated". Is there a way to create a new status category?

enter image description here



An indication of the stage that the order has reached in the order business process.

You can add values to this picklist within two system-defined order status categories: Draft and Activated. You can use these status categories to track orders within your business process using reports and views. Some user permissions apply specifically to draft statuses. Others apply specifically to activated statuses.

Properties of status:-

Create, Filter, Group, Restricted picklist, Sort, Update

hence you can create picklist value of this field


The status category for the order. An order can be either Draft or Activated. The label is Status Category.

Properties of status code:-

Filter, Group, Restricted picklist, Sort, Update

There is no create option in properties So you cannot create the status category.

Hope it helps you.
