How could we improve Flow?

Mass task editing

Add the ability to shift-select or cmd-select multiple tasks and add the same due date and/or tag to all of them.

        This is a joke right this functionality was slated as an idea in 2013 then planned in 2016

        There was a workaround for due dates you could drag them onto the calendar from the schedule but since the introduction of start dates, this is gone !! it only assigns and does not mark the date

        When managing 100+ processes and timelines this makes the software unusable and we will be looking for alternatives

        I really need this feature. I need to update 100+ tasks due dates and will need to do this one by one. Nasty. Come on guys.

        In 6 months, we can celebrate 5 years since this was first requested, and 2.5 years since it was confirmed as on the roadmap.

        Chiming in as well. Our organisation started evaluating Flow this week and my first process was to type in 50 tasks from our existing solution (Jira), then try to bulk assign them to my team. Deal-breaker for me I'm sorry.

        Piling on. Bulk edit feature would be much appreciated! Like big time.

        I would like to be able to select multiple tasks and edit them by adding tags, subscribers, or due dates to them, or deleting them all at once. Right now, it does not appear that I can do this.

        I also want this BAD....may go shopping for other app if dont have this capability soon

        Bulk editing is an absolute need. The solution today is not really handy as it is asking you to change the ordering of your task. So if I want to change 10 tasks assigned to me in a specific section, if I change to the people view I loose this section organisation so I see something like 40 tasks assigned to me but it's hard to find what are the 10 tasks to edit.

        Please, Please update this. Asana, Wunderlist, even Evernote are doing it.

        For the moment it's really hard to edit multiple task at the same time. You have your list organised in a certain way and you want to reassign 10tasks to an other person or you want to change the due date or even add a project manager as a follower for 10 tasks you created.

        Changing view is really hard as it change completely the organisation of your task. That's not a great solution.

        We can select several tasks but when you do it, the actions are really limited. Evernote is doing it really perfectly. You can edit, move, tag several notes at the same time. Really efficient.

        Could we have a better bulk edit?

        Thanks,
        Charles

        Crazy how much this is needed. I want to Unassign a bunch of tasks and change the date on another bunch and there's just no way to do it.

      • Gary Duncan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @Jake Paul sure you can drag things around in the calendar that already have a date, but you can't do that for tasks that don't yet have a date set...

      • Gary Duncan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Having the ability to change dates and assignments on multiple tasks at once in particular.

        This is something Asana does well, and we miss since moving over to Flow! Is this still planned? Given the date on the suggestion is November 2013...
