When you have installed Virto Bulk Edit and activated it, you can use it either as a web part placed on a SharePoint site page or as an additional feature in “Actions” menu in a SharePoint list or library.
Virto Bulk Edit is intended to edit list item preferences, for example, when you need to change status of multiple tasks in a task list.
When you choose Bulk Edit option, you will be able to edit details of multiple files from the document library or items of a list. Choose “Bulk Edit” in the “Actions” menu, all files of the chosen list will be displayed as a tree. If you use Tree View, you can select files for editing from child folders (see Bulk Edit settings below).
Select files to edit on the left and fields to edit on the right. For example, we need to change due date for several tasks:
Note: if you did not specify a value for a required field while editing, you will see the message highlighted.
When you have made all the required modifications on the displayed page, click “OK” to save them.
The result of editing will be displayed in the list.
