Multiselect (with SHIFT and CTRLCMD keys)

#1

Hi, I don’t think it was suggested before (maybe something similar was here:
Option to change multiple fields in a column at once)
but I would really like to be able to select multiple items at once (a range like with SHIFT key or just a few like with CTRL/CMD key) and drag them to another column or folder.

I just tested Trello import and thought how nice it that my ~40 lists i can divide into 3 folders, co in each folder i just have a dozen or so lists. Unfortunately, dragging them (items, not even colums) is so time-consuming.

Or is it already implemented and I just couldn’t see it?

Hey @man,

Thanks for taking the time to open this topic.

Multiple select is a MUST. I’m 100% with you that it saves a bunch of time and makes the flow much efficient.

We’re talking it through and thinking of a concept for a couple of days/a week now. I’d love to announce that it’ll come soon, but let’s wait for a bit more. :slight_smile:

BTW. I’m super glad that you’re happy with the Trello Import feature. It works like a charm, aye? :smiley:

Another way that multiple select would be helpful:

I review a list of items and there may be several to which I would like to assign to the same label (or checkbox). I could select all of the items that are appropriate and then apply the label to all of them at once.

For example, I have a folder that I call inbox - everything goes there first. Then when I process the inbox, I notice several (let’s say…oh, 6 items) that I would like to apply the label “next” to. I could multiple select those 6 items, then select the “next” label.

(Now when I go to my general overview and select the tab that has “next” as it’s filter, I can see all the items that I am going to work on right now.)

Thanks.

That sounds a lot like GTD and I hope I’ll be able to adapt Infinity to GTD-like workflow.

I really like GTD when I read about it, but in practice, I find myself not quite implementing it to perfection. I probably use the “next action”, “Project” and “if it takes less than 2 minutes” alot, but after that I end up doing some weird hybrid of Covey/Kanban/ and that thing where you set a timer for 20 minute increments.

Please please please add multi-select in all views. Also, please consider adding the ability to drag a field downward to copy a field in table view (much like in airtable). This would be incredibly helpful. Also, if you have multiple items selected and you change one field label while selected, all fields change to mirror the initial change.Thanks!

This truly is a MUST have feature for me as there is no way to select multiple items and edit them in bulk at the moment either right?

Hey @marc.maessen,

You’re right, sir.

We’ll do our best to speed things up regarding Multiple Select.

I agree it’s definitely a must!

Hey @BaiJie,

I’ve just spoken to the dev team, and honestly, they’ve said that it’s not on a high priority list.

I’ll try to remind them and see where we are with this over the week, but I think the guys have a lot on their plate right now…

Sorry that I don’t have a better answer right know.

Hi @coa

It’s been 6 months now, any progress, or at least a plan in the near future, to have multi select items?

Thanks

Hi @irfantony,

Thanks for the question and welcome to our Community Forum :slight_smile:

The plan is to implement Multi-Select in the near future, hopefully in the beginning of 2020.

I know that this topic has been started a long ago, but I’ve mentioned why have we been forced to put off some features (again, not quit on them, just postponed).

We’ve published Advanced Permissions, Form View and Public Boards last month, the plan is to finally finalize Gantt and Move Folder to Board and Move Board to Folder features by the end of this one.

Also, one of the next and huge priorities:

  • Performance/Speed improvement
  • Some .csv import fixes
  • Native Integrations
  • Automations
  • Multi-Select
  • Bug fixes

Thanks :slight_smile:

I would up vote this, but i don’t have any left!

Need an update on this @Coa, i am struggling to delete the template data as i have choosen to keep it for reference on what it could look like.

Where are we at with implementing multi-select on rows?

I feel like this is basic functionality (Not necessarily easy to implement,) that most users would expect to see out of the box.

Selection Functionality:

  1. Selecting a full record / row
  2. Selecting a range of cells across rows and columns
  3. Copy from Infinity and pasting into infinity following CSV standards. Use excel and airtable for the baseline on this functionality.

Copying and pasting one cell at a time is ridiculous. Am i missing something?

The only work around to this is:

  1. Export CSV
  2. Create a new folder
  3. Use import CSV functionality
  4. Map data to attributes
  5. Manually move each item (1 at a time) to the destination folder…

Is there atleast a way of importing directly into an existing folder???

I’m so sorry for the inconvenience caused!

I’ll do my best to forward your suggestion to the dev team, but in my knowledge, this feature is currently in the ‘medium-to-high’ priority column.
