Edit multiple tasks at once

chris.yeoh says:
In the web version we can select multiple tasks and edit due date/list etc....

I would love to have that in the Android version as well.

For example:
- Select multiple items in my Inbox using the check boxes on the left
- Hit menu
- Hit Edit
- Change the list to "ps-Daily"
- Hit save

Result: All tasks selected are now in the "ps-Daily" list.

Thanks for listening

It's now possible to edit the due date, priority, list, or tags for multiple tasks in version 2.0.0. :)

Yes please: that would be very useful. I know we can postpone or complete tasks in groups from the widget, but it would be very helpful to be able to eg take all Friday's undone tasks and change their due date to Monday ... or when I get back from holiday.

+1, so far I can only postpone more than one day on the desktop - I'd love to do it on my Droid

+1. I would love this. This is the one thing that the app doesn't do that I always need to go back to my desktop computer to get done.

Using the menu button would work, but it might be simpler and more consistent to just add it as a third button when you have selected multiple tasks: Complete, Postpone, and Edit.

When you edit tasks with different values for some of their fields, it can just say "multiple" until/unless you change it, same as the Web interface does.
