Hi All,
I have sentence here:


This is the status when a notice is created. In this status, the notice can be edited or deleted.
I would like to rewrite the second sentence as: In this state, the notice can be edited or deleted. Would that change the meaning? Technically or nontechnically?
In this status somehow sounds a bit awkward to me.
