If you’ve used ActiveCollab for long, you’ve had those aha moments where you discover a feature hidden deep in the UI that saves the day or at the very least makes your life a lot easier going forward… but… this is one of those hidden features, you’ll never discover by poking around in the UI… unless you just happen to be addicted to exploring your shortcut keys.
Mimicking some of your common desktop features, the CTRL + CLICK reveals some bulk management features like that hidden power in your favorite video game — an easter egg of sorts — that when you find it, will put a smile on any project manager’s face. Oh you mean I don’t have to change the status on each individual task? I don’t have to move these tasks to a milestone one by one… or… now I can easily correct the mistake a client made by not adding a category to their file uploads.
All this with just a click of a button — and a keyboard shortcut!
