To make a bulk change to issues in the backlog:

  1. Select issues while holding Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac) to select multiple at once.

  2. On any of the selected issues, click More () > Bulk change.

  3. Select the action you’d like to perform.

Some actions may not appear in the menu if they have a limitation, in which case you may need to adjust the number of items you’ve selected. You may also require permissions for some actions to appear (like the delete and archive actions).
