Using batch actions to perform bulk updates in the Calendar module
It's sometimes the case that a User wants to 'bulk change' a selection of records, or even all records. Batch actions is a feature that enables users to do just that. Each module in ChurchSuite has its own 'batch action' functionality, with more batch actions planned for the future.
In this article we explore the batch actions currently available in the Calendar module. See the related article for batch actions available in the other modules.
Within the Events section of the Calendar module, selecting one or more events will reveal the Actions menu, allowing a user to perform batch actions on the selected events.
Batch actions include: Edit and Delete.
Selecting Edit provides options to perform batch edit actions for the event Name, Times, Site, Category, Status, Description and the event Visibility and Sign Up settings. Ticking a checkbox for an item will expand the edit options available for that item.
Users must confirm before clicking the Save button to process the batch update.
