Why do "Done" issues still showing in next Sprint?


As title, how do I change that?

My guess would be because the issues were not flagged as "done" when you ended the previous sprint.

"Done" on a scrum board is the last column on the board, not just a done status or a filled resolution.

I have to move every "Done(status)" issue to "Done" column on the board view? Is there any faster way to do this in once?

You should be doing it during the sprint as your developers complete the stories.

But if you need to do a tidying up exercise in bulk, yes, you can search for the issues and then use bulk-edit to transition them through the workflow into a status that is in the last column.

I've just test it, when assignee change the issue status from X to "Done", in Board view, the issue will automatically move to "Done" column. then why do these "Done" issues still showing in current Sprint? @@a 

Because a sprint shows what is currently in it, irrespective of status.  The whole point of the sprint is to contain a set of issues that you've committed to doing.  And the board is there to show progression, including all the stuff you've marked done.  It doesn't drop "done" issues, the whole point is that you can see that they're there.

When you close the sprint, items done in that sprint will be seen as closed issues - they won't appear in the backlog, or in the next sprint because, well, they're done and the new sprint should be committing to doing the next selection of issues that need doing.  If an issue is not done when you finish a sprint, it will go into the next sprint, because it needs more work doing.

For me it is marked done. I close the spring the done items still move to the next sprint.

I realized i needed to make it the last column in the Kanban.
