Description Is there anyway to mass add accounts to a specific territory other than doing it manually one by one?
Resolution 1. Create Custom Fields with data type “Number” Example. field name = "SFDC TEST".

3. Once done we have to set up Territory Assignment Rules rule.

Steps to navigate to territory models:

Setup | Manage Territories | Territory Models.

                                      a)  Enter the name of the rule.
                                      b)  Enter the selection criteria for this rule

Now you need to select "SFDC TEST" Equals 1 activate the rule and click save button

4. Under “Assignment Rules Assigned to This Territory” section
