Append a created "Ticket Status" form field to an already existing column in the main ticket view
I recently made a change to my ticket form and I had a question. If you look at the attached screenshot, you can see that I added a new field via the Admin Panel -> Manage -> Forms -> Ticket Details. This field is a "Status" field that can be set when a ticket is created, and it will signify the progress that is being made with the ticket. I have options such as, "Opened", "Work in Progress", "Awaiting Feedback", "Ready for Deployment", etc. This field can also be edited throughout the ticket completion progress to give a more detailed description of the ticket status.
Here comes the task I want to accomplish. I've added some columns to the main ticket window so I am somewhat familiar with how this is done. What I was curious about was how I can append the status of the ticket to an already created column in the main ticket view window so that it can be easily seen.
When a new form field is created, such as the status field, does this get saved as a variable somewhere? I need to be able to access this variable so that I can put it in the <TD> of a column for it to be displayed but I am unsure of what variable to reference to do this. If anyone has any ideas about how to reference this newly created status variable, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any further clarification is needed please feel free to ask.
I appreciate the help!
