To track planning & burndown chart

Our sprints are 3 weeks length, starting on a Tuesday and ending on third week Monday.

Sprint Planning->Week1-> Tuesday - Thursday

Sprint Execution->Week1-Friday-Week 3 Monday

If I put Sprint 1 Tuesday as my 1st day of the sprint then I won't have my sprint backlog ready by week1 Thursday so the burndown chart will look like I added additional scope and it won't reflect the true data. How do I handle the start date in Jira so the burn down reflects the true scope?

Hi @Brindha Ravichandran 

See below from the Scrum Guide - you shouldn't be spending 3 days planning! for a 3 week sprint, you should only be spending 3 - 6 hours of the first day planning, then your sprint backlog is complete on the first day and your burndown will be fine.

Why are you spending so much time planning?
