Set the Connected Cards Done Lane

You can designate one or more lanes on each board as the Connected Cards Done Lane. Just like the finished lane, LeanKit uses the Connected Cards Done Lane to calculate how many child cards associated with a work item have been completed. Any card moved into these lanes (and any of their sublanes) as well as the archive lane will count as done when calculating the proportion of child cards completed.
