incomplete user stories not rolling over to next sprint even when next sprint planned

We are having a problem where completing the sprint in JIRA 7.0.4 is not moving incomplete tasks and sub tasks into the next sprint. We verified that the next sprint is planned on the board. On closing the active sprint, it gives a dialog saying the incomplete items will go to the backlog. Is there some sort of configuration to move to sprint instead of backlog? My understanding was moving to next planned sprint was default behavior.
