How can I move multiple tasks at the same time ?
if the task structure you want to move consists of a parent task and many sub-tasks, moving the parent task should also move all it's children right away.
If that's not the case, you can use the multi-select option. To do so, press and hold down the CTRL key (or Shift - either works) and then start clicking on the tasks you'd like to select. Once you do, you will see a couple of options for the whole group of selected tasks at the top of the screen. One of them will be "Move to project".
Hi David, tks for the answer but this not exactly what I need let's give you a very simple example
What I want to do is move task 2 and 3 under the subtask 11 and 12 all together.
if you want to reorder tasks 2 and 3, you can so so by dragging and dropping them. See how it works in this short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhumUr8kY6I
Then, if you want to indent them, click each of them and use the Ctrl+RightArrow shortcut or the indent icons on the right side of the task input field.
Alternatively, while you use the drag & drop feature and "grab" a task, press the number keys 1, 2, 3 or 4 while holding it to change its indent level.
One more point all the tips are working everywhere :
- extension ?
yes, these methods should work in all our products, but please keep in mind that indenting tasks is only possible in a project view and the default view of our plugins/extensions is "today, overdue" so you'll need to access a project first.
David (or Todoist team),
Is this a feature in the works? I see that it's still not possible to move multiple tasks—at the sibling level—at the same time.
It's already possible to move multiple tasks :-) To do so, please hold the Ctrl key and click on your tasks to multi-select them, you'll see a menu at the top as you start selecting tasks and one of the options in this menu will be "Move to project".
We're obviously not being very clear. Let me try to clarify.
I'm trying to move multiple tasks WITHIN a project by dragging in one multi-selected swoop. Is THIS possible or in the works?
It's not possible to re-order/drag multiple selected tasks within a project yet and it's not something that we're currently working on. However, we'll consider adding this functionality in the future.
I created a Chrome Extension that selects all tasks in the current view at once https://goo.gl/a0Lvxs. Once all the tasks are selected, on the top you can change the date, move them all to a new project, change the priority, or delete them.
This should fix your problem :)
