Why is done work carrying over into a new Sprint ?


  • The team is operating on 2-3 week sprints
  • Project workflow: WorkFlowJira.PNG
  • Sprints are closed as tickets are completed by status "QA DONE" , which is assigned to DONE COLUMN ( "QA DONE", "Done)


As stories are completed, we move work into the 'Done' column. 

When a new sprint begins, any work previously completed is being carried over into the new sprint (and remains marked as 'Done'). 

How could I avoid things under DONE column showing up on the next sprint ?

They need to be in the far right column AND have the resolution field set

Joe I did move the column earlier to the far right, where should I have the resolution field set ? on board query  filter ?

You can set the resolution in the post function or on a resolve screen, your choice. 

also it could be the last step of your workflow is really completed, not the done status.
