Bulk change priorities


Is there a way to select a bunch of tasks with a Priority 1 and change them all to another Priority level, or so I have to do them one at a time?

All responses

Hi Scott,

Unfortunately, there's currently no way of bulk changing priorities of tasks which means we have to do it one at a time for now.

I wanted to change all my priority 1's to priority 2's... so it looks like that is a manual process?

Hello Chris,

Unfortunately yes :-( We'll look into implementing it in the future.

Best regards,

Really hope this (multi-select and change priority) gets implemented.

Desperately need this feature (also bulk change labels), in order to quickly reprioritize tasks.

This is a really important feature as it's very time consuming to change priorities one by one...

+1, even if the default was 3 (not 4) then you have the option to make it higher priority, or lower priority.

This is the reason I have looked at other options. Todoist is a very good application with a glaring flaw regarding batch editing. There is much Todoist does well... I have to think there was an initial problem that led to there not being batch editing, almost like a fork in the road? From a non programmer's point of view, seems easy to pull batch editing off. I'm sure it is a monster problem, however.

Still, as a Todoist fan and user, I have to say, this really must be addressed.
