Mass actions: Changing tasks titles or prefixes

Hi Team!

We need to change task titles in mass quantities beyond the duplication of templates.

It would be much faster and easier to utilize mass actions and select all the tasks you wish to change the name, prefix, or even ending.

This would help our process greatly!!

 

Thank you,

I agree. We use templates and duplication extensively. Being able to append a suffix would be greatly appreciated

Id be interested to learn how you are using the current prefixes if at all. I haven't found a good use for even that feature yet. Always open to ideas though.

We have job numbers so we use prefixes to indicate which job the task belongs to

We use a template when launching new projects and the prefix option is great.  We use it to add the project name in front of every task.  However, we have had a few instances where the project name needed to be later modified.  It would be great if there were a way to mass edit the prefix.

I completely agree with this! We also use a template when starting a new project and the prefix option is great for adding the projects name to every task. However, when doing this all the subprojects are also renamed with the prefix (not what we want!). If we could just mass edit the tasks instead and add the prefix in that way it would be perfect. Eventually, every project name also gets an internal company code added to it - when the time comes these are currently manually updated in each task prefix. Again, if we could mass edit tasks for these scenarios it would save us a real headache!
