[Status: Investigating ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ] Mass Editing Projects - especially moving them is PAINFUL

Hello,

I have a list of 100+ projects in the root folder that I would like to move. However, the quantity of the projects makes moving them a very, very tedious task.

Wrike does not seem to provide any "mass editing" functionality for projects the same way it does for tasks.

Not even multiple selection and dragging.

Would it be possible to get something to mititgate this pain point in the near future?

Thank you very much in advance!

Also for us it would be more than a nice feature. Sometimes you have to rethink folder and project structures.

Is there a concrete time perspective meanwhile?

Hi Torsten Mรผhlhoff, thank you for reaching out! The team considers adding this in the Table View as a part of their longer-term planning, so no ETA available at this point. We'll keep you updated!ย

Yes please. As a use case, my team members are generally owners of 100-200 active projects at a time. When, for instance, one of them goes on parental leave or moves into a new role, we need to reassign ownership of their projects, often all to one person or a small group of people. A mass edit option via Reports or elsewhere would be very helpful here.

Lisaย is there a key for what all the statuses mean? I'm curious all the level of consideration from "backburner" to "launched".

Lisa, is there any update on this?ย  I'm a portfolio manager and need to keep dozens of projects organized.ย  Editing them in batches would be very helpful.ย

What is the status on this?

It's been around for a while, and it is absolutely needed. If tasks can be mass edited, then of course the projects should be mass edited as well.

Hi everyone!ย 

We got an update from our Product team - they are currently researching this suggestion to validate the possibility of working on it. This is why I've changed the status here to "Investigating". Please note that it hasn't been confirmed yet that the ability to mass edit projects will be added to the roadmap. We will keep you updated on how the research goes.

Thank you for your support here ๐Ÿค—
