Move Sprint "Buckets" within Plan Mode Screen

Can you re-order how the sprint "buckets" appear in the Greenhopper plan board? The goal is to be able to start the sprint "bucket" we want. I noticed that when we created Q1,Q2... buckets and the upcoming sprint is not at the top so i cannot start it.. Can I change the order so I can start my sprint and not lose my "buckets"?

Not possible, just swap the names of the Sprints in the board.

You may also enable 'parallel sprints' in GreenHopper labs.

The ability to reorder or reorganise sprints was shipped in JIRA Agile 6.6.11, please see the release notes at
or documentation at
The feature was tracked in issue and was resolved on 03/Nov/14.

"Move Up" and "Move Down" are current features that allow you to do this.  However if we are release planning for multiple teams our release plan gets huge!  Is there a way to move a sprint faster than up\down one at a time?
