Is it possible to edit Start or End date of a Sprint, while Sprint has already begun? Edited

Hello, easy question, is it possible to edit Start or End dates of a Sprint, while the Sprint itself has already begun?
We had to postpone of one day the Sprint Planning, then I created the Sprint setting the day before as starting date.
On a monday, as every time I started a Sprint.
Consequence of this action is that Velocity is already broken, due to the fact that all changes happened between in the first day -before Sprint Planning - were registered in the reports.

As a fix, I would like to change the Start Date, but I could not find a way.
Thanks in advance

Hi Alessandro,

you can change the start date in the backlog view of your board by just hovering over it:


Oh thanks, I was very blind! :D

If you think, your question is answered, please mark it as answered.

Other user find answered questions then more easy. Thank you.

It appears this feature has now been moved to the three-dot menu that appears to the far right of the line that includes the Sprint name line, open and closed tickets, linked issues, etc. Click the three-dot menu and select "Edit Sprint."

Here, you can change the Sprint name, start and end dates/time, and sprint goal.

@Chrissie Sydness Heining is this for active sprints or for closed sprint? For active sprints, I don't see the option to edit end date

For active sprints. Yes, you can edit the end date for an active sprint from the Backlog view (not the active sprint view, which is where I had been looking). Click the three dot menu to the right of the name of the active sprint and select "Edit Sprint." In the next window you can edit the sprint name, start and end dates, and description. 

Hope that helps!

In my view of backlog and three dots, I only get: Add Sprint Goal" and I have a pencil icon next to active sprint title and by changing date there, sprint is not being replanned, it still says X days remaining instead of x+2 

For me to edit any sprint details, sprint has to be closed, and navigate to reports from side bar>select sprint>three dots>edit
