Using the checkboxes next to each item, select which items need to be updated.

In the top righthand corner, click the Bulk Edit button (pencil icon).

An additional popup window will appear with Bulk Edit options. If there are unavailable actions, click on the arrow to expand the view to see what is unavailable and why.

You can choose multiple actions at once. Be sure to select additional settings if needed.

An additional pop-up window will appear for confirming these changes. Click the checkbox to agree to the changes, and then click Update Activities.

Once updated, you will see a Success dialog box to show the activities were changed.
