I need to add two Done columns in Scrum Board as one of my status is closed one and for Burndown to work ideally it should be in Done Column but i wont be able to see both the columns separately in Active Sprint board as i dint get any option to add multiple Done Columns.
I don't disagree with the definition of Done, I'm just surprised that you have to choose the "status" of a column (to do, in progress or done) - and no matter the status that are in this column - which defines the color of the column (white, green, blue) and therefore its status REGARDING the sprint, but even tho you select Done the column stays green if it's not at the very right as you said, which is actually a VERY ODD LIMITATION that serves no real purpose.
In my case I need to have a visual differentiation on the board between multiple status, all being resolved/done tickets, all I need is to split those into 2 columns but I can't have that, otherwise only half of them will be registered as Done when completing the sprint.
So yeah ofc I "bypassed" it by putting everything in the last column but that's not what I call bypass, it's simply renouncing to the "feature" I need, if we can even call that a feature.
If you can't see that then... sorry ^^
I agree that it's a bit fuzzy, it is partly historical, and partly an apparent unwillingness to draw it all together properly on the Atlassian side (a reticence I don't understand). I keep meaning to write an article on it here.
Logically, the right thing to do is have a single "done" - to keep plain Jira and Jira Software happy without a complete redesign and refactor, you could:
This fixes the problem. By force. And limits the flexibility - one thing it completely rules out is "subjective" status where one team's "done" is another team's "to do"
Hi @shivam chhouda,
Each column on a scrum board needs to be mapped to at least one status. Once a status is mapped to a column it cannot be shared. To have more than one Done column you would need another Status added to your issue's workflow.
Separately, I would advise against adding more than one Done status and column to a scrum board as this may screw reporting and sprint closure if not managed correctly.
Hope this helps
