Navigate to your Management module and click on the Scheduling tool to access your project's Schedule.
Step 2: Select items
Click on an item in your schedule, then hold the SHIFT or CTRL key and click to select multiple items.
Note: Bulk Assign applies to Projects and Tasks only (milestones are excluded.)
Step 3: Click the "ASSIGN" button
Click the "ASSIGN" button located on the bottom toolbar.
Step 4: Review selected items
Review your selected items before adding your assignees and followers.

Step 5: Add assignee and followers
Assignees and followers of tasks can view, edit and add comments to schedule items. They are also kept in the loop with any comments or changes to schedule items.
Select one assignee and any number of followers by typing in to the related search fields and selecting each from the list.
Step 6: Notifications
After bulk assigning items in your schedule, each assignee and follower receives an email notification like the one in the example below.
