How to clean up 'Done' tasks in a NextGen project?

We're fairly new to Jira and are using a NextGen project and have started accumulating a lot of tasks in the 'Done' column of our board.  Is there any way to clean these up?  I did some Googling and found references to adding a filter that only shows tasks from the last 30 days, but that doesn't seem to be possible in the NextGen project.   Am I missing something?

they are supposed to age off after 14 business days in Done status or at least that was the interval at one time. i haven't tested this lately. 

Thanks Jack!  I'll see if that is happening and update this as the answer if so.

Is the 14 days based on the Resolved date? Or does it somehow track when it was moved into the column. 

We had a user move some issues from the Done column to the backlog to get them off the board so need to know if the time is going to start over if we move them to done.

Any way to change this value?

You drag completed items to the Done column. When you end your sprint they are removed from the Board. If your sprint is weekly, then they are removed weekly. If your sprint is a 2 week sprint, then done items will be removed after two weeks.

Also, there is a new "View Issues" screen where you can change the status of items to Done, rather than dragging them.

That applies to NG scrum boards but for Kanban they age off.
