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

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?
