Ability to 'Select All', for example to postpone all tasks

alicea says:

Am I missing something or is there not a way to select all tasks on the Moto Droid?

Menu key -> Views -> Lists -> All Tasks is one way to see them all.

Thanks, but how do I select them all so that for example I can postpone them all without selecting one by one first?

alicea,
There's no way to select all tasks (e.g. to edit/postpone them) in the RTM app; you'll want to edit tasks individually. The fastest way to do so, in the cases of completing/postponing/deleting, is to long-tap on a task, at which point you'll see the popup menu offer those choices.

Hope this helps!

Actually for complete or postpone, I've been selecting multiple checkboxes one at a time until I've selected them all and then using the complete or postpone option which takes care of them all. I was just looking for a "select all" option so my time to postpone could go from 30 seconds to 2 seconds. So spoiled :-)

The android app is missing a way to postpone tasks. The choice is only completed. It would be very helpful to not have to go to the web app to postpone tasks.

This feature would be fabulous. Just came here to propose this. I sometimes have 20 tasks left in "due:today" smart list (which is my main list) and I'd like to postpone them all before I go to sleep (like, for instance, now :-D). RTM app for android is sooo good that it spoiled me to the level that I find clicking 20 tasks to select them all tiresome :-D Because everything else in the app is just as I would want it to be!

So, don't get me wrong: your app is amazing. But, if you could add "select all" to, for instance, right button menu, the app would be beyond amazing. :-D

I also miss this feature in the Android app. Just had to postone about 20 tasks which lead to me postponing the postponement until I got to my laptop. It would be nice to do this easily (also deleting, etc.) right from the app without having to select 20 tasks by hand before.

The select all in the edit mode of a list is still a priority for RTM on iPhone. Any possibility for next version of app?

Lol @sirsiggi! I end up adding a yet another high priority task to do the bulk editing lol!

Oops, to continue, I second that on the android app, I can do almost every advanced function that I can, including editing Smart lists, advanced searches, etc but not being able to select all is a huge chunk of productivity that I am missing.

An example: the android app doesn't show an icon if I have a url, and some of my description are barren. To avoid deleting them I want to do a search for http or www, and add a note to all of them, but can't select all to do it.
