kanban board clear done tasks after 72 hours

I would like to know the correct method for removing cards marked as "Done" after 72 consecutive hours of being Done. In other words once an item is marked Done I want the counter to begin and if it is still Done after 72 hours I don't want to see it on the board anymore.

Is that possible with a filter?

I can think of a couple of ways to achieve this:

  • Create something that will update issues to label it as "Done and Aging" (e.g. transition them to a different status and/or update a custom field). In your boards filter, exclude issues with this status or fields.
  • Update your board so that it will now show Issues without updates witin 72hours (Project = ABC and updated = startOfDay(-3). Caveat is all the issues will be affected, not just the done column.



Thanks for the quick response!
I don't see the startOfDay option. 

nevermind - I see it. 

What if I did this:
project = ABC AND (status != Done AND updated = startOfDay(-3)) ORDER BY Rank ASC 

Well, if it's not on the board, you won't see it in the reports... If that's not important you could add this to the board (sub) filter:

... AND status changed TO "<Whatever is mapped to your Done column>" AFTER startOfDay(-72h)
