Bulk Edit and Mass Delete

If you need to edit many records at a time, the Multi-Record custom button can be helpful.

Let’s assume, you register conference participants in the Conference Attendance database. If a person has visited a conference, the Status value should be changed from Registered to Attended. You can create the Multi-Record custom button with assignment and display this button in the View you need.

Mass Delete

If you need to delete many records, we recommend to create a Table View with filters and activate the Mass Delete option.

For instance, you want to delete records created last year.

At first, build a table view with the filter: Date Created is Last Year.

Then check the Mass Delete option in the Advanced Options section of the view settings.
