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.
To mark all visible records, check the
Action checkbox. Also, you can select the records you need using checkboxes on the left.
After that, click on the Attended multi-record button, and the Status value will be changed to "Attended."
The Multi-Record button settings are displayed below:
If you need to delete many records, we recommend creating a Table View with filters and activating the
Mass Delete option.
For instance, suppose you want to delete records created last year.
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.
As a result, the
Delete button is displayed at the top of the view. Moreover, the
Action checkbox allowing you to tick all visible records is shown at the top left corner of the view.
When the button is clicked, all chosen records will be deleted.
