Add Statuses to a Program

As a CiviForm Admin, you have the ability to set custom statuses (e.g. Approved, Waitlisted) and email content for each program. Once you create and publish statuses for a given program, the Program Admin will be able to set statuses for each application submitted to their program.
For statuses with associated email content, a status change will trigger an email to applicants that used a CiviForm account to submit their application. The applicant will also see the status of their submitted application(s) when they log into their CiviForm account.
Note: in order to use status tracking, your IT Admin must have enabled the feature. To enable the feature, have your IT Admin set the CIVIFORM_APPLICATION_STATUS_TRACKING_ENABLED environment variable to true.
