  1. Click the Agile link's down-arrow in the top navigation bar, then select your preferred board from the resulting dropdown menu.
  2. Click Backlog.
  3. Hover over the sprint name or date field, click and type the new name or date, then press Enter.
    Note, the Start Date and End Date are not specified until you start the sprint.

I am also seeking a solution for this. Having the end date of a sprint determined only by when the sprint was closed makes it impossible to preserve consistency in the reports for the reality of sprint periods if for any of many reasons the sprint is not closed on the actual date it ends.

However, the solution presented here does not work (for me at least). Clicking the sprint end date does nothing. Am I missing something?

Thank you.

I am having the same problem. This solution is no longer valid. I think the documentation needs updating for 7.0.

Actually, it works when I hover on SOME sprints, but not the current Sprint.
