Today's Changelog brings you bulk editing in the table layout and improvements to tasklists!

🦖 Bulk editing in tables

You can now update multiple cells in a column at once!

Update a range of cells in any column by dragging the small blue rectangle in the bottom right of any cell up or down. You can also use keyboard commands to paste values into multiple cells at the same time.

  • 1⃣ Copy a value, using Command+C (Mac) or Ctrl+C (Windows)
  • 2⃣ Select a range of cells by clicking on a cell, holding Shift and clicking a different cell in the column or select non-neighboring cells by clicking a cell and selecting multiple cells while holding down Command (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows)
  • 3⃣ Paste values into selected cells, using Command+V (Mac) or Ctrl+V (Windows)

✅ Tasklist lockless editing & live Projects updates

The hierarchy team has been hard at work improving tasklist performance on issues and in the Projects sidepanel speeding up editing and control of tasks by 2x! We call this class of improvements "lockless editing" and we're working on baking this approach into all tasklist operations in the future.

We've also improved the speed of tasklists updates reflecting in your projects. Changes to the Tracked by and Tracks columns, which could previously take minutes are now reflected in real-time. 🎉
