If you mean the Versions in the new panel, you can click on the current start date to edit it in GreenHopper 6.2. If it doesn't have a start date, it should say "None" - just click on that and it should allow you to edit it.
Here are more details:
Hey Peter, versions don't have start dates, they have Release Dates. Sprints have start and end dates. If you're using the new agile/scrum boards, those are based off of sprints, not versions. You can still use the Classic boards, which are based off versions, but again, those do not have start dates. There are some dashboard gadgets which work with Classic boards, and those have start dates...is that what you mean
My apologies, Peter - all this criss-cross of functionality between classic and new, sprints and versions, is totally confusing sometimes. Found your answer:
In Classic Planning Board, with version selected that you wish to edit, on the right side make sure the "expand all" button has been activated. You should see the version in the column with all its fields; there is a pencil next to each field, including Start Date, you can edit from there. You need to be an adminstrator (documentation from Atlassian doesn't state if they mean JIRA admin or admin permission to project, scroll down to #10 in that page to see what I mean) in order to edit the field. Sorry for all the confusion!
Agreed - the terminology and functionality is getting so confusing since GreenHopper is attempting to run two different methodologies. I'm looking forward to the removal of "classic" and streamlining of the new boards. Sorry again for my confusion, and I'm glad I was finally able to find you the correct answer :)
