Need to understand Execution States better

Vince Thyng (13723753) | asked Jul 23 '14, 12:24 p.m.
In Manage Project Properties->Execution States we have selected only Passed, Failed, and Blocked.  In a Test Case Execution Record, we are seeing Passed, Failed, and Inconclusive, with Inconclusive offering a pull down list showing Blocked, Inconclusive, Error, PermFailed, and Deferred. We were expecting to only see Passed, Failed, and Blocked as State options.  Can someone explain what is going on here?  Do execution states only apply to a different area or different record types?

I believe the Preferences for the Execution States you are referring to are for specific to Execution Results

Thank you, yes that does seem pretty clear there.
