Deleting/clearing tasks in bulk

I have a bunch of tasks linked to the workspace that I need to clear. 300+ in fact. Is there a way of doing this in bulk instead of having to sit there and clear each one individually?

Hey Shaun

Good question. Tasks can only be deleted one by one I'm afraid. It is a good input for future improvement.

We do have some bulk delete functionality but this works for app items (if you are using a task app), not the regular task function. Learn about the bulk delete function here: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201019808-Bulk-delete

Hey Reva,

Sounds like you might have a repeating task or automatically create tasks via the workflows?

More on automatically created tasks here: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201194467-Automating-workflows

Please let us know via a private support request using "Contact support" in top right corner of the Help Centre and we can help you remove the task :)

I could also use a bulk delete of tasks. Even though I deleted them our of the "all checked tasks" list does not delete them from the actual item that they were assigned to.

You can run this javascript to check all tasks that are currently on the screen:

 

$('span.mark').click();

I agree, the lack of ability to delete tasks in bulk is a challenge for us as well. Please offer some solutions.

If I delete an app item and it contains incomplete tasks, do all tasks get deleted along with the item?  If no, where do those tasks get assigned within the app environ?  What happens to previously completed tasks?
