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

Note: Only users with the project permission to edit all tasks can bulk edit tasks on a project.

In the Table or List area of your project, click the three dots to the right of the task list name. In the dropdown menu, click Advanced then select Bulk Edit Tasks.

In the Bulk Edit Tasks modal, you can select an action to perform on the tasks:

  • Modify, move, copy, complete, delete.
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.


When selecting the modify option, you will 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.
