Quickly schedule multiple tasks for a job at once and reschedule tasks when things change.
Working example: You have your carpet layer booked for Thursday but your touch-up painter can't start until Wednesday so you need to reschedule the planned order of your tasks on a job, by moving out the carpet layer and other contractors my 3 days. The Bulk Actions feature allows you to do this easily.
The Bulk Actions button found in the Scheduled Tasks fly-out allows you to view, edit and Reschedule Tasks of one or many tasks. See the the steps to activate this feature below:
Step 1: Within a Job select Scheduled Tasks
