Move and Reschedule Multiple Tasks


At some point in the project, you may need to reschedule multiple tasks because of due date shifts or project changes. Instead of moving tasks one-by-one, you can save time by moving multiple tasks at the same time. Read on to learn how to move and reschedule multiple tasks at once.


Reschedule the entire project

Let's say you need to move your project out a month. Rescheduling it is easy! 

At the top of your project, you'll find a thin, gray bar to the right of the project title that spans the entire length of the project. Simply slide the bar forward or backward to reschedule your project in its entirety.


Reschedule a group of tasks

Need to reschedule a group of tasks? Simply find the dark gray bar that spans the length of the task group, and slide the dark gray bar forward or backward to reschedule it.


Reschedule multiple tasks across groups

You can also easily reschedule multiple individual tasks in a project, no matter which task group they belong to. There are two ways to do this:

Option 1:

  1. Click the first task bar you would like to move
  2. Hold Command (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows), and click another task. 
  3. Repeat step #2 until you have selected as many tasks/milestones as you wish. 
  4. You can then either drag the task bar to move it to a different date or drag one of the ends to adjust the task duration.

Option 2:

  1. Click the first task bar that you would like to move.
  2. Hold Shift and click another task. This will select the two tasks you clicked and any tasks in between. 
  3. You can then either drag the task bar to move it to a different date or drag one of the ends to adjust the task duration.

Tip: When selecting the tasks you wish to move, click on the colored task bar, not the task name.
