A substatus is a user-defined label that is linked to a main status for the purpose of providing additional information relating to the status of a quote or task. 

Substatuses are included in the quote and task list views, which can be filtered to make it easier to find particular jobs of the same substatus. The substatus colours are a visual aid for easy identification of the overall status of a quote or task within list views and the Calendar.

A range of sample substatuses are available by default on new AroFlo sites.
