Updating Multiple Tasks in a List
In the Tasks list, you can also select multiple tasks and use Bulk Update to change the details and/or the Status for more than one selected task at a time. Refer to Tasks Bulk Update.
Updating a Task from the Process History Checklist
When a Task has been created from a Process, if it has been set as a blocking Task and needs to be "Completed" before the Process will continue, it can be updated from the Client Process History Checklist, or if relevant from the Job Process History Checklist. Refer to Completing a Task from the Process History Checklist in Client Process History Checklist.
Note: If the Status of the blocking Task is set to "Rejected" the Process will stop.
If you are the creator of the Task or an FYI Admin, you can delete a task. Select one or more Tasks in a Tasks list and click Delete. To delete a single Task, you can also right-click and select Delete from the pop-up menu.
