Mass Change of Subtask Inheritance

So I’m pretty sure I am up a creek with this one, but posting here anyway with the prayer there is a way to fix this goof! I made a board for my team to help us with some of our weekly upload cadences. We upload for schedules for each building every week, so I created a task for each building that has 52 subtasks each. HOWEVER, I didn’t set any inheritance, and when I went to the dashboard to start making easy to track metrics, I realized none of my subtasks have some of the important custom fields that I wanted to be able to organize by…

Is there a way I can, en masse, change the inheritance of my subtasks to inherit one or more of the custom fields from the parent task? Image attached as an example of what my task looks like.

There are some things that can be accomplished via Flowsana like a user explained in this example.

Hi @Mason_McCoy,

You can make bulk changes to your subtasks in list view. Use the expander next to the parent task and then use Asana’s Bulk-Edit feature to update custom fields. Please notes that you can only update 50 tasks at once.
