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

In the Tasks area in your project, select the menu button to the top right (three dots) and select the 'Bulk Edit Tasks' option: 

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.

Selecting the checkbox next to each property will show a 'Select' link for you to choose the new setting for that option:

The available modify options are:

  • Reassign - Reassign task to a new user
  • Start Date - choose a new start date 
  • Due Date - set a new due date
  • Progress - choose the new percentage of progress
  • Estimated TIme - add the estimated time in minutes
  • Priority - choose the new priority
  • Followers - change the followers of the tasks
  • Change creator - change the name of the person who has created the task
  • Tags - add or remove tags 
  • Set column - set which column the task appears under within board view
Once you have selected your new task properties, choose '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, click the 'x' to the right of the selected task list name, before adding the new task list name:


As with moving tasks, you can first choose which tasks you want to copy.

Once you click next, you can then select the destination project and task list for the tasks:


When you choose 'Complete' from the operation dropdown and select the tasks you want to complete, you can then click the complete  button in the modal:


Similarly to the complete action, when you choose 'Delete' and select the tasks you want to remove, click next and then select the delete button in the bottom right of the modal:

You will then see a confirmation modal before deleting the tasks.
