There doesn't seem to be an efficient way to change task name strings in bulk. For instance, if I have 50 different tasks that contain the string 'Joe' (model_Joe, texture_Joe, Joe_anim010, etc) and I need to change 'Joe' to 'Henry', I would need to query the tasks that contain 'Joe', export to Excel, find and replace the string, then re-import everything back to Shotgun. I think having the ability to do this directly in Shotgun would be very beneficial, especially for instances that involve modifying more than just a few task names. It could be as simple as selecting the tasks, right-clicking and selecting a 'Find and Replace String' option in the menu and entering the current and new strings (similar to how Excel handles this function).
I'm curious if other people would find this to be helpful and/or have thoughts on this type of functionality?
