Hey, love Todoist. But we definitely need some more actually really basic features.

Already in my first three days, I deadly missed the multi-selection function: We need an option to multiselect tasks and then perform several actions - like moving multiple tasks to another project, deleting multiple tasks, moving multiple tasks up or down, changing the priority for multiple tasks.

Hope you guys can make it. :D

Hello Jimmy,

this feature is already available in Todoist.

To multi-select tasks, please press and hold the CTRL or the SHIFT key and then start selecting multiple tasks by clicking on them. Once you select the first task, you'll see a menu at the top of the screen allowing you to move the selected task to a different project, change their due dates, postpone or delete them.

Best regards,

Okay, thank you.

Can you then still add some more actions like: Reordering them, meaning moving a bunch of tasks up or down simultaneously. Also, changing priority of bunch of taks might be helpful :)

Also if that would be possible, instead of selecting each task while holding CTRL or SHIFT, can we do "point-to-point" selection like selecting folders on the computer, meaning click on first item holding shift, then click on last item, and everything in between is selected?

our application is constantly being developed and improved so we will certainly add move features in the future.

Thank you for all your suggestions, we appreciate them and you're welcome to add all requests for all features you would like to see in Todoist in the future.

I support Jimmy's request above to add a functionality that allows us to select multiple tasks (i.e. 10+) by selecting the first in the group and then SHIFT + click on the last task. How do I vote for this functionality?

Using an equivalent of "Ctrl+A" or holding shift (as opposed to control) to select multiple items at once would be extremely helpful!

And probably not all that hard to code...
