How to set status as done for multiple columns? Edited

I am using next gen project>scrum>board. I've to created following columns on the board:

  • To be specified
  • To do
  • In progress
  • Development complete
  • Released for testing
  • Pending for release
  • Cancelled
  • Not a bug
  • Prod released

When the last three are chosen - Cancelled/Not a bug/prod release, I want these columns to be considered as "done". How do I achieve this?

Why have you set up swimlanes that mirror your columns?  This gives you a board with a single diagonal line of filled cells and renders all the wasted space useless.

Jira Software considers only the last column on a board as "done", so the only good way to consider multiple "done" status is to put them all in the last column.

Hi Nic, sorry, I wrote it wrong. I've created columns, not swimlanes. And I need multiple columns as done.


Would a better approach be to use multiple swimlanes for the things below instead of columns?

  • Cancelled
  • Not a bug
  • Prod released

You can set up swimlanes for those three status, but they will have nothing to do with "done" - that is determined by columns.

Thank you Nic! I'll do that! :-)
