Can JIRA count story points as done in columns other than complete? Edited

My team would like to count story points once we move them to our Staging environment as the Development work is done and the QA team completes testing before the story is moved into production.  We updated our workflow to accommodate, however, the scrum board only counts story points for the items in the complete column.  Can we update the columns so that more than one counts the points?

No, Jira only looks at the very last column on the board to establish "done"

Thank you.  I suggested that we time box our sprints to align with our releases as one option. I also suggested that we close our stories when the development work is done and move them to a release management board once they are in QA and scheduled for a release.  They wanted an easier option to track from start to end.  Do you have any other suggestions?  

Hi @Monica Leahy ,

while I'm not 100% sure whether this will return the data you're looking for but have you tried to create an additional board with the exact same filter but with the column mapping only being a subset of the whole process / the most right column being the one you want to report on?


Interesting.  I will give it a try!
