From the List view of CiviCase Activities of a case, I cannot edit the "Status" of an activity; the drop down flashes and then goes back to current status. To edit, I have to click "edit" and go into every single Activity one by one. Is this a bug or a set-up problem?

    Could be a both ;-) What you could do is use chrome/firefox and press f12 this will open a developer tool which might show some errors. Those errors could probably give an indication fo what goes wrong. May 31, 2018 at 7:37
  • Note that you need to click on tick button in order to save your selection in the dropdown. May 31, 2018 at 8:35

As a clue to lead to possible answer, I am seeing the same kind of issue when I try to edit an activity. Drop-down boxes (e.g., status) and search-for-match fields (e.g.,assignees) are hidden behind the activity screen and, even if the screen is minimized, do not allow editing when clicked. We are WordPress 4.97, CiviCRM 5.3.2. This is the first we've encountered this.
