Bulk Update of task names on Active projects


Level 2


Hi there! It would be highly beneficial if there was a way to rename tasks in bulk on projects that are under current status. For example, I have 100+ projects that are current in the system, all with a task titled "Project Launch." I now want to rename this task on all active projects to include an internal code (example- "A1 Project Launch") , however Workfront doesn't have the means to do a bulk update on current projects.

As a company that is fairly new to Workfront and still refining our platform and workflows, there should be a way for us to implement these types of improvements without it being a manual update on each project. Hoping this is something that can be implemented sooner rather than later.

I also am reorganising hundreds of projects and thousands of tasks for consistency.

Bulk edit of tasks allows updates of many fields but not the task name for some reason.

But why restrict it to current projects or incomplete tasks. Why not allow this for any tasks selected?

I am having to set up an API update to do it.
