Completed items no longer show in Next-gen backlog

Previously issues within a sprint that were status Done would show with a line through them.  Now they don't show at all and you can only view them with a search or with "Test View by Issues".  The product manager prefers it the previous way, any method of putting it back?

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community! I hope you are having a nice day.

Next-gen projects are a simpler option to manage your work, so it does have a limited number of customization and features.

For now, this is the expected behavior for each project template:


The done issues will disappear once the Sprint is completed.


If you have Sprints enabled, it should follow the same logic as the Scrum template.

if you don't have Sprints enabled, the done issues will be automatically removed from your next-gen board after 14 days, including from the backlog view.

Let me know if this information helps.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
