Next-gen sprint project: What makes an issue complete?

I'm dumbfounded as to what makes an issue complete or incomplete. I completed a sprint and a bunch of issues (actually, just about all of them) moved from the old sprint to the new sprint, even the ones in the Done state with a Done resolution. In fact, the only completed issue I see is one that is in a custom Closed state (which is in progress type) with no resolution. I'm seeing these designations through the Sprint burndown chart feature and it's not giving me any clues as to what incantation is needed. I have tried setting story estimates, fix version, redoing the Done state, etc, but none of them have succeeded in moving my tasks to the completed issues section.

Hi Victor - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Typically, for sprints, it will consider an issue to be complete if it is in the last column (far right column) on the board. 

That was the exact right answer. Thank you for the help. This is a slightly awkward interpretation since we have Done status as well, but at least I'm good to go now.

They have to be in the right-hand most column on your board.

In my case, they all need to be in the "Done" column.
