Tasks that are moved to the done column are not being removed from the backlog

Hello,

Tasks that are moved to the done column are not being removed from the backlog. I have googled the issue and attempted all the fixes. Are you able to look at my board to see what is going wrong?

Thanks,

Dominic

Hi Dominic, 

In order to remove your issues from the Done column, you can either remove them from the board filter (modify it by adding "and status not in (resolved,closed)") or you can add some quickfilter (those buttons on the top of the board) that toggles the visibility of the closed issues. The filter would be the same, (Status not in (closed, resolved))

I want to keep the issues in the done column but i don't want to see them in the backlog. Is that not possible?

When you start a sprint with issues, those issues disappear from the backlog. Am I misunderstanding your question?
