Bulk Editing

What is it?

Any.do’s bulk editing option, enables making bulk changes to todo lists and workspace boards. Instead of changing items one-by-one, review and edit multiple items simultaneously to get more done faster. This feature is a true game-changer when it comes to staying productive, offering 6 powerful options to edit multiple tasks at once.

Who has access?

  • The feature is available on web and desktop only.

How does it work?

  • For private lists users can enjoy batch task editing to add Reminders, Lists, Color Tags to multiple tasks at a time, mark several tasks as completed, and simultaneously delete all of the selected tasks.
  • Board members can enjoy batch editing for tasks, such as adding Due dates, Tags, Sections, and assignees. They can also simultaneously archive or add to My Day all selected tasks.
  • Users can also drag and drop multiple tasks in the private list views.
  • Until the selection bar is dismissed, you can easily continue to edit the selected tasks.
