I have a large set of tagged tasks in an org file and I want to shift all their dates by one week. Dates could be scheduled, deadlines, or plain dates. What is the easiest way to do this?
I attempted this using bulk actions via the agenda tag view, but I get a warning message about bulk actions not supporting tag views when I attempt to apply my custom
org-agenda-date-later 7 function. I don't know how to do this in agenda without a tag view.
I have not solved this yet, but I made some headway. You can shift a date three days relative to its current value using
++3d in the date prompt. Agenda bulk actions does not work with this because it relies on
org-read-date to prompt for a new date that will be applied to ALL selected items, meaning there is no chance of the currents dates of each item to be considered. So first, that must be fixed, which will require calculating a new date per selected item. Next, bulk actions need to be added to search results. I will try to take care of these one-by-one, but will take awhile.
