Can I edit the start date or the completion date of a task

Regarding the completion date, we would suggest you use the Complete task button. When you click on the Complete task button the completion date of the selected task is time-stamped and this timestamp cannot be changed.

You can, however, return the task status to In Progress and Complete Task multiple times - these will be time-stamped as well. The most recent time/date stamp of the Task completion will reflect in the task details.
