How do I keep tasks/bugs in the DONE column on an Agile work board?

On our work agile board, whenever we move a task to the done column it gets removed, meaning we can't see which tasks we have finished during the week. How can we change this setting so it's only removed when the project owner removes it, or closes the sprint?

The issues (tasks/bugs etc) still exists, they just don't show up on the board. I can only find them through a search or direct link.

Are you able to see the issue when viewing it directly?

A couple reasons why issues disappear from an Agile Board:

  1. The issue is not mapped to a the status that the column represents
    1. You'll need to map statues to columns on your board
      1. You can do this in the configure menu of your board
      2. Select "columns" on the left, and check to see what UNMAPPED STATUES you have
    2. I've learned that what my workflow calls "done" another workflow might call "finished" and unless I map that "finished" status to my "done" column, my board will not pick up the issue
  2. A particular filter is filtering out the issue
    1. I've no steps to share here.  Just do some digging in the "general" section of your board's configuration.
