How and what can I update using bulk actions?

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 pencil icon on the left-hand side of a data table.


Hover over a box and click to tick it. 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.


Then you can perform bulk actions by clicking the pencil icon, which will now be blue. The option available depends on what page you are currently on.

I'm still stuck!


  • hi Gwyn, how do you bulk delete/ bulk change Academic leads?

  • Hi Jamie, there isn't a way to bulk change Academic leads. However, you can change the staff assigned to particular timetable slots in bulk, or change academic leads one at a time. You can see how to do both options here.
