Tag and date multiple items

Hi - long time Dynalist Pro user here. I’ve asked about this before, but this seems like a no-brainer: Say I get a list of 100 revision notes on a project which I want to pull into the revisions list for that project; I get such lists from multiple people involved in a project throughout the life of that project and I need to tag those items with the date received and the person who sent them. Currently, the only way to do this is ONE AT A TIME! This is obviously a huge time waster - seems I should be able to just select a bunch of list items and tag them all with sender and date, no? Please make this possible!

Thanks!

I think this would be very valuable as well. I work in a world where I tag notes by topic, or people, or just a plain old GTD style “waiting” or “pending” tag. I’d love to select multiple items and apply the tag(s) to each. The way this works in Evernote is very user friendly. I’d be happy to have it added to a right click menu option when multiple items are selected.

I would really like an option to tag multiple items at once.

Sounds like you’re looking for the functionality to a spreadsheet like http://sheet.new

If you really want to paste 100 items with dates, first past the items into a spreasheet, then the dates into the next column, then copy and paste as plain text, and you’ll get the item and date each in a single node in dynalist as you want. There’s a lot of powerful text parsing tools out there - textedit on mac, google docs, sheets, colab, and regex101.com are my favorites. There are so many ways to slice and dice text that it really requires a full fledged programming language to satisfy everyone imo.
