Provide the ultimate order processing transparency with the additional order statuses. Create, manage and apply customer order statuses and quickly notify customers about changes.
To configure the module, please, go to Stores → Configuration → Amasty Extensions → Order Status and expand the General Settings section.
Hide order state — enable this option to hide order state completely or disable to display the order state as 'State: Custom Status'.
To create a new order status, please, go to Sales → Order Statuses.
On the grid you can get information on the existing custom order statuses and modify them. To create a new status hit the Add New Custom Order Status button.
Then, on the Status Information tab you will see the following options:
Status Name — fill in the custom status title;
Order States to Apply Status To — choose the default Magento 2 order states to which the custom status will be applied;
Enabled — enable or disable the status.
