Jira Agile: Order of two statuses in one column


my agile dashboard is configured to include two statuses in the most right column, "Resolved" and "Closed". The problem is, that I can't change the order of the two statuses, which appears on top of the other. I tried to rearrange them but it doesn't affect the order, when dragging an issue from a column to the "Done" column.

Is there any way to change the order of the two statuses? It would be really helpful to have "Resolved" on top of "Closed".

PS: I've found this page https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/configuring-a-board/configuring-columns where in the comment section Shylah Weber is asking the same thing, but without an answer.

I am afraid you have to create a "Suggestion" against JIRA Agile.

Hi Shylah WeberC. Ross McKenrick and Nelson Nauss,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to do this in JIRA Agile. Please feel free to raise a 'Suggestion' in our issue tracker with your feedback.

Kind regards,

I do not know any workarounds for now. How about just giving each status their own column then ticket the "Set Resolution" on both of them? This will give you another column but they will function just the same. You mention that you try to re-arrange them. How? Can you try removing these statuses then add it back in order?
