When creating a project from a request, and using the workload balancer to assign the tasks, is there a way to bulk assign like there is in the original scheduling tool?


Level 5

For instance, I know I want all the content tasks of the new project to be assigned to xx person. In the scheduling tool, I chose the role (content specialist) in the dropdown and then in the second dropdown, chose the xx user. All of the tasks assigned to that role were assigned to that user. I don't see anything like that in the workload balancer. All I could figure out was to click the ellipses next to each unassigned task and then click 'assign to'. That is not efficient.

I couldn't find anything in the articles on the support site either. Thanks!

Hi Janelle, in the 21.4 release webinar, they mentioned bulk assignments functionality will be coming to workload balancer with the 22.1 release. They also mentioned scheduling will no longer be available when 22.2 is released. Personally, I'm waiting until 22.1 to switch from scheduling to workload balancer. Hope that helps, James
