    I have a workaround for this really important need of a bulk delete feature.

    We create and delete hundreds of tasks per day. Using a free Chrome browser tool for GUI automation, iMacros, you can record yourself deleting one task at the top of a column, then loop and play the macro and delete 99 tasks at a time in a few seconds. There are two caveats:

    1) After you record the macro, before saving, you have to delete the line that reloads the Microsoft Teams web page.

    2) This tool can be dangerous, whereby if new tasks come in and change your view, you could automate deleting the wrong tasks. In order to prevent this, first set your task filter to only select items from a single column of your view (e.g. low priority tasks ready for deletion). That way, if new tasks come in they will not add new frames and confuse the macro.

    It is all a bit clunky, hence the need for a proper feature. However, if you are deleting hundreds of tasks a day as I am, this could save hours of your life from such drudgery.

    This is urgently needed, and it needs to not just be something the user has to do manually. We create hundreds of tasks per day, and this needs to supported within the "Create a task" or "Update a Task" connectors so that we have control over what is displayed programmatically.

    We just spent days building a system to manage tasks for dozens of users that uses automated creation of tasks. The owner of the Flow will surely run out of tasks and render our system useless! With the #3 and #4 limits, our system will break and be useless for sure.
