  • Change their position in Table view.

  • Change their status (when tasks are sorted by status).

  • Change their importance (when tasks are sorted by importance).

FAQ

Why can't I change task statuses using mass edit?

If you're using fixed and flexible workflows you might not be able to perform a mass status change. When you select multiple tasks with different workflows and at least one of them has locked status transitions, you won't see the option to change the status in the mass edit panel.
