I can still see closed issues from the previous completed sprint from my backlog.
this is my first time to use Jira as a PM tool. i created my first sprint and successfully completed it by hitting the complete button.
unfortunately there are some tasks that not yet resolve or still in progress.something in the system pop up and saying that do I want to put all the on going tasks to backlog, i choose yes. after clicking the ok button, all of my tasks from my previous sprint appears in my backlog and i cant remove them from that list.
what am i supposed and right thing to do?
Thanks in advance
When you complete a sprint, all the issues you have not finished are, by definition, not done with, so they need to go either into another sprint, or back into your backlog. They still need action, so you need to keep them somewhere that shows them as needing work.
Only issues that are in the far right-hand column of your working board will be seen as "done" by the sprint when you close it.
You need to get them into the far right hand column of your board, and then close the sprint.
Boards and sprints do not use the resolution at all, and only really use status to determine which column an issue is in. What matters to them is the right-hand column.
I attached a screenshot of my backlog, you can see list of issues came from the my previous closed sprint.
please also note that all of this issues were already closed before i closed the said sprint.
Is there any way to remove this issues from my backlog? all issues are all technically done and the sprint is already closed.
What does your board filter select for?
Go to board -> Conflguration -> General and it should display the board filter. If it looks more complex than "project = XYZ order by rank", then can you post the filter here? (plain text is fine, screenshots are more of a ffaff to share. Also, feel free to obscure stuff you don't want to share - we're interested in the fields it is looking at, not the exact values of the fields)
Nope, that is all I have. This is the primary board for the project, so the filter is just "project = JC ORDER BY Rank ASC". Also having looked more closely, for the current sprint, All of the closed items are still showing in the sprint (Not many as we have just started a new sprint). Previous sprints do not appear at all as expected.
Ok, is this definitely a Scrum board, not a Kanban?
If it is, then I think we need to see some screenshots of this - specifically an issue view of an issue you think should be on the board (main system fields only, not any text fields or assignees), and a shot of the board showing that it's not there in the done column.
The issue is the board and the backlog share the same query - anyone know if there is a way to enable two queries?
I have the same issue, I see things appear in the Done column, which is great that's where they belong, but once they are done, I don't want them in the backlog view. If you edit the query to remove the Done status, it removes the Done issues from the backlog but also the board, again you need two queries.
One workaround - you can add status to the card view within the board settings (board settings > card layout> add > status) but IMO that just adds too much junk to your backlog.
I already resolved this concern by putting the closed column to the last. it should be look like this.
1. you go to the board settings
2. select column on navi bar
3. arrange your column based on your workflow., make sure that you place the closed column on most right last part. this mean your issues is already completed.(the color green line under the column name also indicates the status is done)
let me know if this works.
Yes, it worked :) Thank you a lot.
Could you help me with one more thing?
How to achieve that the items in cancelled status do not appear in Backlog? Sometimes during the Sprint, we as a team decide not to do a feature and we have 'Won't do column' mapped with Cancelled status. Aftercompletingg the Spirnt they apear in Backlog :(
