How to apply approval to multiple work items via a query?


James Bradshaw (11) | asked Nov 24, 10:27 a.m.

I am working in EWM version 6.0.6.1 on a team area created for a series of Work Items to be created by the "Import from CSV File" tool.


After creating a query I wish to apply an approver and set the state on multiple items at the same time. However all Approval tab material does not appear as an Attribute in the "Edit Multiple Work Items" tool. 

How do I apply Approval Type/Approver/State to multiple work items?

I would like this functionality for two main reasons:
1. I wish to import the whole set so the team has all the items for reference from an old record system. This would include closed tasks. Ideally all fields would want to be populated as our workflow states they should have.
2. Using a query filter the teams would like to apply an approver to many work items at once.
