Note that you can accept the default of all features meeting your filter or select just those you want to update, enabling you to slip your schedule a week

    • Push past due Bugs - Enables you to extend the estimated fix date of bugs that are not yet complete. You can filter and then select just the bugs you want to push and then extend for any number of days.

    • Update Assignee - Enables you to reassign selected components from one user to another user, for all releases or just a selected release. Only incomplete components are reassigned (that is, those components having a status less than 100% or milestone date in the future).
