Status updates are fully customizable ways of keeping track of what is happening with a talent profile. If you are using a talent pool for active recruiting you can keep track of how someone is progressing as a candidate. If you are using it to put a team together you can use it to note which people have been approved to join the team and when. You can customize the statuses, so how you use them is completely up to you.
When you create a custom status that status is then available for every Talent Profile within a pool. It is not however available in other pools. This allows you to make sure different pools can be used for different tasks.
