How to add more choices to "project status"?

I want to create a KanBan with all projects based on their status

I’d want to have other then the default one (open, closed, cancelled) though.

I can’t quite figure out where the status field for projects can be set up. It doesn’t seem to be the same as the Task status. Can anyone advise on this?

EDIT: it almost looks as if this was not possible (same for tasks), is that so?

Hi

You can do this via Customize Form -> Project

For the field Status (which of type Select), add the status options as required.
