Allow batch select in dashboard

Please update dashboard widgets to allow batch actions. I use a dashboard to track all of my work and our process involves changing the status of up to 20 items when one portion is completed. Batching this status change to all 20 items is necessary and currently if accessing the items through a dashboard widget I have to change each status separately. This renders using the dashboard mostly useless as I have to go to the board itself to perform my batch action.
