Multiselect: Bulk edit priorities

Multi selecting tasks allows you to bulk edit the due date. However, I find myself quite often wanting to bulk edit the priority. Can I add this as a feature request?

I've put the platform as 'Android', but it applies to all. Should there be an 'All' option?

Hi Dan,

Thank you for sharing your ideas with us. We'll consider adding this option in the future. :-)

I was just wondering about this myself. I actually came to the help section looking for how to do this as I assumed it had to be possible and I just didn't know how to do it.
I'm actually surprised it isn't a thing =O
One should be able to bulk edit tasks ;_;
I hope you guys get to implement that soon =/

Specifically, it would be great to bulk move tasks from the inbox to projects.

Nevermind :) just figured out how to do it.

Alas, that's the sole reason why I'm unable to stick with Todoist. Dates allow me to modify the overall load for a particular day, but next I wish to change priorities instantly - to be able to focus on the most important things I want to accomplish.

BTW, I've noticed that not only mass changes to priority are a must, but it's actually very useful to be able to build an instant shortlist, a 'focus' list.

this would be nice for labels as well. I couldn't figure out a way to do it in the desktop app. sorry for necroing the thread.

Trying todoist again after the new release. Looking sexy, but still ineffective. I select five tasks, now I want to mass move them in a list - that is a list of things to buy in a certain place, so r u when I am there, I can focus on that alone. Now, the only things I can do with that multiple selection is delete them or chance their due date.
Why? Batch changes would be SO rational that I am genuinely impressed they are not there.
