Bulk edit To-Do's

We clone a release as a template and have created many to-do's in our features.  Need the ability to bulk assign to-do's when someone creates a new release

    This is practical from a collaboration across groups

    This would be a big improvement and would really cut down on the setup time required for creating a new release!

    Currently, when you clone a release, this includes the feature to-do's (and the assignee for each to-do is also copied).

    Is the intent to assign new set of to-do's to different users?

    Responding to Ron's question:  To-do's from the cloned release will change to different users.

    DAMN I am spending a lot of time doing task maintenance.
    Two handy features could make this easier … 
    #1 Bulk copy tasks to … 
    I've got features that people created but they forgot to copy it from the template feature.
    It would be super helpful if I could just bulk-copy all the tasks from the template feature to the target feature.
    • Select multiple tasks
    • Click to copy to
    • Choose a target
    #2 Move task(s) to … 
    Sometimes I have tasks in the wrong place.  Like maybe someone put them in the wrong Release Phase.  I want to be able to move task(s) to some other thing (Feature, release, release phase, requirement, etc …)

    • Select one or multiple tasks
    • Click to Move to
    • Choose target thing

    A different use case here is having to reassign to-dos

    We had someone leave and had over 100 to dos, i had to go in and manually change each one or mark complete each task as I was not the assignee of the todo it would have been much easier if i could have just done a bulk edit and reassigned or changed the status

    Manually updating the assignee for Feature To Do's or Requirement To Do's is extremely time consuming.  Lead team members do change and a bulk edit for all of their To Do's would really streamline the maintenance in Aha!.  It would also be nice to Bulk Check the boxes since the To Do's remain open even when the feature level or Requirement Level are marked NA.

    As a side note, could Aha! allow opening all of the Feature To Do's with 1 click like there is today for the Requirements?  This update would at least make it easier to Bulk change the To Do's.  OR, please reconsider Bulk Edit for To Do's to save Program Manager's lots of wasted time making manual changes.

    I would be curious to get the admin response as to why this is unlikely to get implemented.  I really think to-do's have a ton of potential in Aha, adding in more ability to manipulate them like bulk edit would be very useful.  Thanks!

    Hi there, the status of this idea was actually out of date. It is currently possible to bulk edit to-dos from a list view. This article explains how to do so in more detail. One thing to note when editing to-dos -- if you need to re-assign the to-do, you will need to both remove the current assignee and add the new one in the bulk edit form. This is because to-dos can have multiple assignees so just adding a new assignee will not remove the original. I hope this helps!
