Bulk edit/delete


I just wanted to pull together the tickets (that I know of) which describe the need for bulk edit/delete functions: and AR-1377. In both tickets, they describe the function as something similar to either the rapid barcode entry or the rapid data entry. This could be initiated by highlighting the desired archival objects and clicking a button possibly located by "Calculate Extent" to expand the editable fields. is labeled as a container issue, but this function would be extremely helpful for objects needing data remediation of any kind. For a bulk delete function, similar to highlighting several lines, I would like the option to delete those lines (it currently only deletes the first highlighted line).

Yep. There's a team working on specs for that. We're planning on putting our draft specs out for commentary next month!

Hi there, I’m wondering if this issue is still being considered. It’s a high priority for my institution, because if we have bulk-create functions like RDE and the spreadsheet importer for staff, it is important to have corresponding bulk-edit and bulk-delete functions.
