How to make gift certificates immediately active?

Using version 2.010, when a customer purchases a gift certificate that certificate is automatically marked as “pending.” The administrator must manually make that “Active.”

Is there a way to make the certificate “Active” by default?

Any ideas?

Or is this a totally easy thing that I’m just missing?

I'm stumped by this too…?

is it something simple or is this how it's supposed to work?

Change the setting “Change gift certificate status to” under Order Status setting to your desired status.

What if you aren't seeing the “Change gift certificate status to” option in the Status edit dialogs?
