You can save time by selecting multiple items in the list view on Stackfield to work with them at the same time (e.g. to archive them). This feature is available in the discussions, tasks, pages, and files module.
Selecting multiple elements at once
In general, the required elements in the list view can be selected individually by clicking while holding down the control key.
Select multiple elements, here: discussions
Alternatively, multiple elements can be selected by pressing the shift key. In this case, all elements between the first and the last selected element will be selected.
Using the shift key to select multiple elements at once
As soon as elements are selected, they turn bluish and can be recognized at a glance. In the overview, you can then select the required change with a right-click. Depending on the size / number of entries, several steps may be necessary. If too many or too large entries are selected for the change, a corresponding note will appear during the process.
Special case: Tasks
Within the tasks module (in the map and list view) it is only possible to select multiple tasks at once within a column. You can then archive, delete or edit them (e.g. mark them all with the same label) with a right-click.
Select multiple tasks
Tip: To delete / archive tasks across columns, switch to the list view.
Special case: Files
Within the files module
Within a room in the files module multiple files can be deleted, archived, downloaded or moved between folders (in the same room) at once with a right-click.
Select multiple files
To download multiple files, select the ones you need and click the option "Download all". The files will now be combined and downloaded as a zip file. Note: With a right-click on the zip-compressed folder and selecting the button "Extract all..." all files can be unpacked in the destination folder on the desktop / PC.
When moving files between rooms download them collectively and upload them in the target room.
If several files are attached to a task, they can be downloaded at once by clicking the more icon in the upper right corner of the opened task.
