As a team configuring our own process using Team Process Management, I want my prior backlog items' status history to be preserved when I create a new workflow from the Initialization feature.

The new Team Process Management feature seems good. What would make it better is to map any existing status values (from the parent work level) to the new status values, such that history is preserved.

The current Initialize feature clones the team's existing status values, but they are *new* statuses. As a result, much of the historical data for a team is lost. This is more of a problem for Kanban teams who actively manage, monitor, and improve their workflow.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback on this product.
