Move completed task to new sprint

I was able to do this more or less. Via Field Configuration > Sprint > Screens. There I selected "default screen". After that I was able to go to the issue and select the field via Edit > Configure Fields .

Now the field is editable but you need to know the id of the sprint, which is visible in this field only. So this is a bit cumbersome as you first have to find out the technical id of target sprint. To do that you have to open an issue from the target sprint, edit it, edit the field, to read the technical id.

Is this the only way?
