We have 7.1 PPM server with access to Demand Management system. When I click on "Search Requests" I get a form asking for PM, created, owned by etc etc. I can see one field - "Status" with a button to search the available status options. But this button is disabled (note I have ALL grants). And I want to enable it.
why do you need the status field enabled by default? There are around 200 statuses. You will never need it all. Selecting a request type and than selecting the statuses is a good approach. If you want to reuse the search, you can easily save it.
That's not an end user editable form. That's an Out Of The Box form, providing OOTB functionality. It is designed to operate where the ability to select a Status is not enabled until a Request Type is selected.
