Stories with Done sub-tasks keep moving to next sprint

Hello.  I have some stories which have sub-tasks that are marked as "Done" (last column in my column management) with status "Awaiting Release" or "Done".  The story has also been marked as "Done" status .  However, when I close the sprint, it places both of them into the next sprint.  Why is that? 

My workflow column management:

An example story AM-74 with status Done (you can also see it moving between sprints - we only just picked up on it)

It's child (showing Done)

We have checked the Fixed Release which are the same and the Resolution of both is set to Fixed.


What could be causing the issue?

Hey Darren,


Do you by any chance have other boards where those stories are displayed?


I've already seen this happening when a user had multiple boards and on one of them the Done status was not mapped to the rightmost column. Every time he closed a sprint on this specific board, the Done stories moved to the next sprint.




Thanks jose


i have had a look and the stories appear in only one Baird.
