This article covers how you can move, string or waterfall multiple items on a roadmap using the bulk actions menu to shave hours off your workflow.

Moving multiple items

To move multiple items in a roadmap, use your mouse to drag and highlight the items that you want to move. 

NOTE: You can select individual items to move on a roadmap by holding down the Shift key. If you want to reverse any immediate changes made to items on a roadmap, simply press the Undo button that appears at the bottom left of the screen. A maximum of 30 items can be moved at once. 

Timeline View

Swimlane View 

The bulk actions menu

Using your mouse to drag and highlight the items that you want to move will bring up the bulk actions menu. This menu will let you: 

  • View how many items are selected
  • String items
  • Waterfall items
  • Move items by a specific date
  • Delete items

NOTE: You can only string and waterfall items that share the same Header

String items

1.  Select the items that you want to move.
2.
On bulk actions menu, select the String icon. 

All your selected items will be strung in a single stream starting from the location of the top most selected item. 

NOTE: The item with the earliest start date will take the first position in the newly formed string of items. Subsequent items are adjusted to have their dates set to be back-to-back. 

Waterfall items

1.  Select the items that you want to move.
2.
On bulk actions menu, select the Waterfall icon. 

All your selected items will waterfall into their individual streams.

NOTE: Items will waterfall in order of their start dates, the dates of individual items are not changed. 

Moving items by date

You can choose to move your selected items forwards, backwards, or by a specific date. 

1. Select the items that you want to move.
2.
On bulk actions menu, select the Move Items By Date icon.
3. Input the number of Weeks, Months or Years you want to move your items forwards or backwards by.
NOTE:
Inputting a negative number will move your items backwards. 

To move selected items to a specific date, set the toggle to MOVE TO and provide a date.

NOTE: Although you can drag your mouse over items you want to move in both Timeline and Swimlane view, certain actions such as being able to string, waterfall, or move items by a specific date, are only available in the Timeline view.
 

Who can move, string, or waterfall multiple items on a roadmap?

To move, string, or waterfall multiple items on a roadmap, you must be the roadmap's Owner OR the roadmap must be shared with you as an Editor. If a roadmap has been shared with you as Viewer, you have view-only access to the roadmap and cannot move, string, or waterfall multiple items.
