Bulk updating allows you to easily and quickly add information and perform actions for large groups of people. Some possible things you can do using bulk actions are:
- Assigning to interventions
- Sending Communications
- Top up accounts
- Allocate candidates to exam seats
- Resolve behaviour incidents
- Replace academic leads
You can bulk update things anywhere you see the Bulk action button.
Bulk change cell values
There are three ways to select values to update.
Option 1 - Hold down your control key and select the values you want to change.
Option 2 - Use the shift key to select fields in a rectangle.
Option 3 - Click on a field and drag until they are all selected.
Once you have selected the (editable) cells to update, click the Bulk action button to change the cell values in bulk.
For example, on the Bulk Edit Marks Advanced page, you can bulk fill the attendance marks, and on the Formative Assessment Marksheet, you can edit marks or add evidence.
The example below shows the Bulk Edit Marks Advanced page pop up. Use the drop-down menu to select the mark, then click Submit.
Additional actions and sending communications
Hover over a box and click to tick it - the button will turn green. Untick the box by clicking again.
Alternatively, hover over a box, click and hold down your mouse button. Still holding the button, move the mouse downwards to select multiple boxes at once, or upwards to unselect them.
The footer will tell you how many rows you have selected.
Then you can perform bulk actions by clicking the Bulk action button, which will now be green. The options available depend on your permissions and on what page you are currently on, but often include adding student to interventions or sending communications.
Top Tip: If you tick rows to use a Bulk action, then apply a filter, we'll exclude the rows you've filtered out and let you know.
