Bulk operation is definitely the right answer. 

First, write down what status is in the "done" column on the board, and then forget the board. 

Run a filter for the issues you want to update.  At the top right, there should be a menu with bulk-edit on it.  If you don't have that in the menu, then you do not have the global permission to "bulk edit", so check that. 

Once you've fixed your permissions and got the list, just follow the bulk-edit instructions, it guides you through it.  You need to transition the issues to the status you wrote down at the beginning.

Also keep in mind that as far as I know, if you want to move to a state that requires interaction after transitioning (like entering a screen to give a description) you might not be able to bulk change issues.

It offers up the transition screen.
