How could I collapse just the DONE items in the active sprint board?

In the active sprint board we have "Collapse/Expand all swimlanes" function, but usually just the undone items are important to us, so we'd like to collapse just the Done items, and keep opened the undone items. 


How could we do it in one step?

Hi @Csaba Schwarczinger

Not exactly collapse - but you can filter them out. I would suggest using quick filters. To do this you need to be a Board Admin - then:

  • Press Board (upper-right) and select Configure
  • On the left-hand menu, select Quick Filters
  • Add in a Quick Filter to show only incomplete work items. For example you could use JQL like "statusCategory != Done" - which would give you all issues which are not in the green "Done" status category - or if you have a specific set of statuses classed as Done, you could use "status not in (XYZ, ABC)"
  • Give it a name and press Add

This way you can filter using the quick filter to show all incomplete issues - or show them all if you need to also. Quick filters are a much more flexible way of achieving this.

Hi @Csaba Schwarczinger 

I don't know how to collapse Done as a swimlane, but you could add a quick filter to the board to hide the Done stuff and toggle it when needed.


Best regards,


Thanks, I have already used the quick filter for this issue.
