Bulk editing in Tasks
Sometimes after I have worked for a while I see I have completed multiple todos or I make a kind of short list in the active todo tab for things I want to finish today. At other times I want to archive completed todos to a sub group I have created. In these cases it would be very nice to have an option to edit to-dos in bulk.
This could be done by selecting multiple to-dos and drag, or a pop-up menu asking me what I want to do with the selection. I'd prefer the first when I want to drag to-dos somewhere, but when I add a team member to a project, I'd like to have a menu to assign the selected tasks to the new member.
This feature is part of our tasks page redesign, which is now available in List and Kanban view. You can switch to it by clicking the cogwheel icon and selecting “New Tasks Beta > Switch”
The Bulk Edit option will be at the top of the page, next to the filters.
In the task list options, a way to toggle all as complete, all in progress, or all back to no status.

O my goodness editing multiple tasks is a must. I came from QDPM and did it all the time.

We just replaced a team member and this would be a huge help. upvote!

I'd also like to see this feature. Must have !
@Sara - I think we have to add replacements and inductions inside Manage System as often doing it will be required in each project.
- replacement -- add Bob where he is not part of a project and reassign all Alice items to Bob, also subscribe Bob everywhere Alice is subscribed. Optionally remove Alice from all these projects
- induction - add Bob where he is not part of a project subscribe Bob everywhere Alice is subscribed.
Of course, it can also be a part of Tasks bulk action

I'd like to see this as well - we just had a new team member and I'd like to be able to bulk change task assignments from one team member to another.
This would be very helpful, and could be similar to the functionality in the Issue Tracker.
Bulk editing of to-do's would be a really helpful feature. In my case, I run into a situation where I'm shuffling around due dates of tasks. Some people use due dates like a priority, so I'm often needing to change the due dates on many to-do's at once. Other systems like RememberTheMilk, Insightly allow you to select multiple tasks at once and adjust things like due date, or who is assigned, or priority.
This would be a big plus for Freedcamp.
