Welcome to the community!

You'll need to re-open the issues, so that they take on a status that is not "done"

Had the same question, then figured out as below:

1. goto your existing issue;

2. click Edit from top left corner;

3. for the Team field, specify the team that the target Backlog belongs to.


I think the idea here is that the Backlog belongs to a certain Team, so once you assign the issue to the team, it will be automatically added to the team's backlog.


Hope this helps.
