Bulk labeling


Hi - I just migrated a couple of hundred tasks into ToDoist. Immediately afterwards I discovered the label feature. Is it possible to bulk label a large group of tasks? If so how?

Hi John,

At this time it's not possible sadly, but we will consider adding these options in future updates.

I agree and also inheriting labels for sub tasks...

yes this is important... bulk processing features in general are weak in todoist

Agreed - more ability to bulk edit tasks would be helpful.

I would like to be able to do the following in bulk:
* Remove a due date (not simply change it)
* assign a label
* remove a label
* assign priority
* remove or change priority

And also bulk subticketing.

Seems almost mandatory-- now that I know it's not possible I need to do it!

I like to label every task that involves leaving the house with the label "errands". When I'm about to go somewhere, I can check that label, and see what other tasks I can knock out on the way. In other task management software I've used, I would then select from the list yielded by the "errands" label the tasks I wanted to do that day and then label them "errands shortlist" or something of the like.

+1; add it to the top menu that appears when multiple items are selected.

Looks like this is the top thread for this issue. Another +1 from me.
