    Hi Lauren, thanks for posting the suggestion here! Mass Editing isn't available for Project attributes, and while it isn't something on our current roadmap, I appreciate that you posted the idea here. It always helps to learn a bit more about workflows, and I'd love to hear about the use cases when Project attributes need to be updated in bulk, as well as how many typically need these updates. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hey Anastasia, thanks for responding so quickly to my request. My team goes through over 200 projects a month ranging from big to small, once we are finished a project we archived it but I don't always have the chance to go through and complete all the sub-projects & parent projects. When I have time during the week I try to stay as up to date as possible to make sure that I mark all projects statuses as "Complete" or "On Hold" or "Cancelled" but there have been where it takes me over an hour to mark all of these projects with the current statuses. It seems like an easy fix since all tasks have a mass edit, projects could too.

    I know some other PM systems that have an algorithm that actually completes the project once all of the tasks inside are finished. Is that something that Wrike would think about too? It would save me time so that I can focus on the projects in trouble versus the projects on time and being completed.

    Lauren, thanks for following up! This info is helpful, I agree that it would make sense to have a quick way of updating statuses when there are that many Projects, especially since it takes so much time to go through all of them. Really appreciate your insight here, thank you again for taking the time to share this! :)

    hi any update on this request? I face the same problem. My teams handles 300+ project globally and we need to be able to update project statuses without having to go through them one by one. Please let me know if you have an update on this matter. Thanks

    Is there anything on the roadmap for this? Especially with custom project statuses the need to mass edit at the project level will be soooo helpful.

    Agreed, Just did a major overhaul of our workflows and backlogging project status corrections is a major task currently.

    Would like to echo these sentiments. Being able to mass edit projects similar to how tasks are mass editable would be invaluable. Given Wrike's lag when making the change on just one project and then navigating back to a dashboard to find the next task that needs changing has become a massive undertaking as we revise workflows.

    Hi I would like to add that it would be great to be able to mass edit Project as can be done in the List View for Tasks. It would also be good to have the Project Filter added to the list view as it is in the Table View.
