moving an issue back to backlog with "remove from sprint" functionality.

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Removing an Issue from a Sprint

Hi, currently when i right click an issue and then press "remove from sprint" this issue is moved to another sprint (let's call it sprint X). i want to change it so that when i choose "remove from sprint" the issue will be moved back to backlog.
where can i change this settings?

Hi,

Removing an issue from a sprint moves it to the next planned sprint, and I don't think you can alter this behaviour. If you want to move the issue to the backlog you can :

  1. drag the issue from the sprint to the backlog in the backlog tab of the board
  2. right click on the issue and select move to top/bottom of backlog (again in the backlog tab of the board)
  3. edit the issue sprint field

Regards,

Peter
