I've set up a series of sprints and want to move multiple issues from the backlog into each sprint. Currently I can only do that by dragging and dropping 1 at a time.
As our backlog gets bigger this will become time consuming. Is there a way to select multiple (eg: Shift+Click or Selection Box) then move all selected issues into a sprint?
Shift-click and Ctrl-click work as you would expect them to for selecting multiple items. Click an issue. Then hold shift and click one several rows above or below it, and you'll be able to drag the whole block into (or out of) a sprint. Hold ctrl-click to select several items that are not batched together.
I thought I was having the same problem (that how I found this question) but then I discovered that issues were in fact selected. The problem was the selected color is just incredibly similar to the unselected color. But if I try to drag them, it shows the selected issues count.
I found this issue while looking for ways to move multiple issues to different statuses in a Kanban board.
In 7.5.0 (Server version), I can select multiple issues in a Kanban board as @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ suggests, but I cannot move them to a different column. (I created a plain-vanilla Kanban project with the standard, Simplified Workflow, where every column is mapped to exactly one workflow status.)
According to this page, moving multiple issues in one go, is not supported. Check out Item (2), third bullet, where it says: "It is not possible to transition multiple issues by dragging them to another column."
