New bulk action feature in Boards!

Hi all :wave:t3:

Here is a quick update to share exciting news regarding Boards and more specifically bulk actions in the Board view!

Going forward, when selecting more than one task at a time in your Board view (using Cmd+click or Ctrl+click), you will see a bulk-action toolbar appearing at the bottom of your screen.

From this toolbar, you will be able to:

  • Add your selected tasks to another project
  • Copy the URL of the tasks selected
  • Deleted the tasks selected
  • Mark selected task as
    • Complete
    • Milestones
    • Approvals
  • Set a due date to selected tasks
  • Assign selected tasks
  • Add collaborators to your selected tasks
  • Make selected tasks dependant

With this update, multi selecting tasks will also allow you to take actions directly on the tasks themselves. That includes:

  • Adding an assignee (assignee will automatically be the same on all tasks selected
  • Adding a due date

Please note this update is currently available to 10% of our customers and will become available to everyone by next week.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and we look forward to hearing your feedback :slight_smile: As usual, feel free to post your questions below and your feedback in the #productfeedback category!

This is great!
Is there a method to select multiple tasks just with the keyboard as in the list view (Shift+Arrow)?

Hi @Eden, you can select multiple tasks in Boards using Cmd+click or Ctrl+click. However, it’s. currently not possible to select the tasks just with the keyboard. Sounds like a good opportunity to create a request in our #productfeedback category! Thanks for your feedback!
