Can we change the default setting for batch updating Activities?
Open, Needs TriagePublic


When currently batching activities for lots of contacts in one go, the current setting defaults to this - Create one activity with all contacts together

This means we can't go back and update individual activities at a later date if need be.

We'd rather it default to this - Create separate activities for each contact.

See the screenshot of where it is on the Activity page

@Eileenmcnaughton - I think this is still happening, is it not? @JSimmons is this still an issue when updating Activities?

It should be possible in bulk via search kit...

@RLewis I haven't encountered this issue.
