Requirement Parent Status

Wednesday, July 20, 2011
I have the following:

Requirement Parent (status Accepted)
   Requirement Child 1 (status Accepted)
   Requirement Child 2 (status Requested)

Why is the Parent shown as Accepted, I expected this to show as worst-case assessment of Requested.  Is there an order that can be modified to resolve this issue.  See the same thing when I change the Child 2 to Evaluated; Parent shows Accepted.  This does not look right.

The system will show the more advanced status unless that status is completed, in which case if not all items are completed, it will remain "In Progress". This is because if you have 1000 requirements entered (all requested), when you make one of the child items Accepted, you'd want to know which parent item has at least one accepted item (for example).
