Bulk operations are multiple instances of similar activities at the same time.

Using this feature, you can save time and effort by updating or performing multiple operations on a bulk of cards.

Example – You want to set the priority as High for 8 cards. Rather than setting priority individually, you can set it for 8 cards by performing a bulk operation on them.

Multiple operations that can be performed are grouped into three sets:-

  • Card Attributes
  • Card Flags
  • Card Operations

Card Attributes

You can bulk update the card attributes (card fields). Some of them are:

  • Card Tags
  • Class of Service
  • Current Owner
  • Due Date
  • Priority
  • Rank
  • Release
  • Size
  • Also the Custom Common Fields

Card Flags 

You can set flags for multiple cards. The flags are:

  • Block Card
  • Issue Flag
  • Manual Flag
  • Risk Flag
