How does a sprint determine if an issue is "closed"

What is the trigger that makes a sprint believe that an issue is "Done"? In the past, on our old server version, I thought this was determined by the "Resolution" field. In the new cloud version I am using, it seems like the only way I can get the sprint to recognize an issue is done is to have it put in the "Closed" status. The problem I have with this, is I have a test phase after our development phase, but I want to close the sprint after things are moved to the QA phase. Is there a way to set the "determining factor" of what a sprint counts as a "done" issue sp I can close the sprint without the tickets being pushed to the next sprint?

Hi @Jason Huntowski,

Sprints are a feature of a board. And although both status and resolution both have a clear relation to what people consider 'done', for a sprint board this is just everything that is in the rightmost column of your board.
