[Status: Not planned] How to mass edit and rename projects and tasks?

Hi, we use Wrike for new product development and I have created a template with sub-projects and tasks. We typically start off with a working name and then assign it a unique identifier later into the project. So the projects and tasks within this would need to be updated with the unique identifier. I would like to figure out a way to rename all of the tasks and projects but the only way I can think of doing this is duplicating the entire thing and then adding a prefix. Is there another way to do this?

Hi Liam Harris, welcome to the Community! Apologies for the late reply here.

I was checking with the Product team to see if there's an update here. There isn't one for now, but this idea, though not planned currently, is on their radar. We'll continue to pass on the feedback from this thread to them and we'll let you know if there's news in the future.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

+1 this one!!! This would save our organization (and me) sooooo much time. 

I have our request forms set up to pull in the title prefix, but often people are submitting requests titled "Please do this and tell this person and update it here" and it's 8 miles long. I know part of this can be fixed by creating rules for how to submit requests, but even then, they still come out super long or non-sensical.

We just need a simple find and replace so when multiple tasks get misnamed it's easy to swap a text string with another.

Wholeheartedly agreeing with all this; we are running into similar issues.
