Batch edit iOS using Workflow?

Hey dudes,

I’ve been rocking back and forth in a padded room waiting for batch edit functionality on iOS. But then wondered if it would be possible to batch edit using automation in an app like workflow.

Even if it’s just the ability to select all tasks started in the past and defer them forward.

Anyone know if this is possible?

You would have to somehow provide a list to a single running of a workflow and then use “for each” processing on the list.

Alternatively you’d have to have the app generate a list and pass each item to a separate invocation of a workflow.

You would therefore need a way to generate that list.

Multiple selection is NOT something that iOS is good at, and that’s where I think you’d stumble.

Yeah. Just drives me crazy that inferior apps like Todoist and 2Do have batch editing and we don’t yet.

Thanks for the thoughts on working around it.
