Assigning owners in the process designer

I have been assigning owners to activities in the cross-functional flowchart. At first I tried to select a couple of activities and then choosing the owner but when you choose a couple of activities that option does not show up. I have so far done this by choosing activities one by one but this process is both time consuming and tedious. If anybody could help me in this regard, I will be deeply grateful.

Unfortunately such a multi-edit of attribute values is not currently supported in QPR Process Designer/Enterprise Architect. As a work-around, you could for example use Excel Integration add-on to first export all you activities to an Excel sheet, assign ownerships to activities using the Excel client and the exporting the updated values back to the process model using Excel import. Creating a suitable Excel configuration requires technical knowledge, but the add-on comes with documentation and an example Excel configuration workbook that can be followed.

Another option could be to use the scripting capabilities supported by QPR modeling tools to create an appropriate extension procedure to the QPR client. This is a more advanced option.
