This might be similar to Automated author notification when the status is changing but hopefully still indipendent.
As far as I see there are only three status for the Active Submissions (according to: https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/userguide/2.3.1/authorUserHome.html). But I am wondering whether there is one status missing in between “Awaiting Assignment” and “Queued for Review” which would/could be “(Editor) Assigned”: Which is for the period between editor assignment and before a reviewer has been asked.
I learned that the authors like to have more detailed information about the status of their article. Is there any plan to add further details for the Active Submissions-status?
