New feature: Bulk edit settings

John Reeve | March 13th, 2020 | ,

One of the great things about Intervals is that it allows you to setup and customize your workflow. Intervals gives you the control over where your time and tasks are categorized and recorded. This control is very powerful and prevents disorganization, but if you decide to change things midstream the process of updating your defaults can be tedious. This new ability to bulk edit defaults makes the process much less painful.

The bulk action menu can be found in the Settings & Defaults section. The default work types, default modules, task status, and task priorities all have this enabled. The bulk action menu allows you to edit several items at once, for example, when changing their status or deleting them.

This video shows where the bulk actions menu is located and shows how to bulk edit work types. The other areas in Settings & Defaults work in a similar manner:

We will be adding this functionality into the projects section soon which will help expedite setting up and managing complicated projects. Soon you will be able to bulk change the rates for multiple work types for a project, or bulk set work types to inactive to prevent any new time from being added to them.
