Description

When I go to bulk edit a bunch of issues, the start and due date fields, rather than displaying "(No Change)" like all the other fields are blank instead. Submitting the bulk edit form with blank dates does not clear the start and due dates for my selected positions, they just maintain whatever dates were currently entered. This means I have no mechanism for clearing all the start and due dates for multiple positions without editing them one by one.

I think the bulk edit form should be changed so that blank dates means the dates get cleared and "(No Change)" means the dates get preserved. "(No Change)" should be the default value.

This is occurring on revision 2035.

+1

I would be glad to see this landing in a minor release soon.

#4 Updated by Daniel Felix about 5 years ago

Those datepicker just need some "unset" button.
Maybe those changefield need always a checkbox like "unset" aside every item.

  • Target version set to Candidate for next major release

Currently there is still no way to unset date fields in the bulk_edit. There are many discussions on this requests. It would be good to include such a feature.

I set the target version to the next major release, as it's duplicate (#10363) was planned for this.

+1 from our side

This is not a rare usecase for us, e.g. if changing/clearing common date fields of an issue and all sub issues.
