Problems with batch editing metadata - specifically defer another

I am trying to batch add a defer another for a day to several tasks at once. It seems to work, but then suddenly, it just disappears. The check boxes get the three dots, but as soon as I select another item elsewhere, my changes disappear. I can set defer on items individually, but I shouldn’t have to do this. I should be able to defer all the items I select.

Is this a bug or is this just way the program is designed?

Hey @gbcosgrove - can you tell me which perspective you’re making these changes from?
