Within Teamwork, you can use the bulk edit tasks feature to modify, complete, move, copy, or delete multiple tasks in a task at once.

In the List area of your project, click the options button (three dots) in the top right and select Bulk Edit Tasks from the dropdown menu.

Note: If you have a filter applied when attempting to bulk edit tasks, it will only bulk edit those tasks found via the filter, not all tasks on a project.

In the bulk edit modal, you can select an action to perform on the tasks:

  • Modify
  • Move
  • Copy
  • Complete
  • Delete

Once you have selected an action, you can scroll through the tasks or use the task list dropdown to find the specific tasks you want to update.

When using the modify option and selecting the tasks, you will then see the different task properties you can update.

When updating the assignee and follower options, you can choose individuals, teams, and companies.

For the task changes and comment followers options, you can add to the existing followers, remove some existing followers, or use the Remove All option in the dropdown.

Once you have selected your new task properties, click Update Tasks to make the changes.


Once you have selected the tasks you are looking to move, you can then select the destination project and task list for the tasks.

If you want to create a brand new task list to move the tasks to, choose the Add Task List option from the Destination Task List dropdown.
