    Title:
    Is it possible to bulk change timeslots?
    Content:

    Hi!  We have a 2 hour service window timeslot defined.  Now we want to change to a 3 hour window.  When we make the cutover from 2 to 3 hour timeslots we will have to manually change the timelsots one by one and then pass all of the appointments from the old timeslot to the new timeslot.  (eg 8-10 appointments will be absorbed into 9-12; as will 10-12 and 9-11). 

    Making these changes manually is a tedious process.  What we would want to do is take a group of 08-10 timelot appointments and move the group to the new timeslot.  (Bulk move rather than one by one).  This isn’t possible since the time_slot option was removed in a recent version.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Wendy.

    Group change for Time slot is not allowed.

    You might create simple script based on Public APIs (e.g. Activity Management API). Retrieve the list of activities that you need to change and then update time slot in a cycle. You may use SOAP UI tool for it for example.
