How do I create a sprint in the past.

I've imported my user stories from another system, but I cannot seem to add them to a sprint dated in the past. I get the error: "You must specify a start date that is not in the past.". How can I work around this to import past sprints?

Create a sprint NOT in the past. Drag your tasks into said sprint. Update said sprint to be a past date. Close said sprint.

Yep. I'm trying to import 10 sprints from another system.... PAINFUL!!!!

This doesnt work for me as the end date always gets updated to the current date when I close the sprint, even though I set it to a past date.

Is there any way to use bulk update?
