Multi selection works with the following options:

  • Move cards to a release

  • Add / remove annotation

  • Change color

  • Add / remove persona

  • Change status
    (card status will not update if the card synced with any issue tracker systems)

  • Add assignee

In case a card is linked to an issue tracker system, the card’s status can only be managed from the issue tracker system itself.
