As a product manager, I would prefer to see status as pure text when used in reports. Showing status as a colorful bubble on reports does not fit the delivery format, especially when it is printed. In reports, at least give the option of including status as a plain text.
Thank you for the note. One potential workaround would be to leverage the Export to CSV option which would provide more of a plain text view.
At this time, we don't have plans for updates in this area based on historical feedback and current priorities.
