Editing Multiple Resources

As well as just editing individual resources, you can also edit multiple resources at once using a batch edit. This allows you to easily modify resources in an efficient manner within ResourceSpace.

To do this you simply need to add resources to a Collection and then click "Edit All" against that collection.

From version 9.0 and later batch editing can also be performed directly on a set of search results by selecting 'Edit all' from the dropdown list of actions available on the search results page.

This will present you with a different version of the resource edit page, similar to the example below. Here you can select the field(s) you wish to edit and choose whether to append, prepend, replace or remove data, and see the relevant values for all resources you have selected. Please note that the options available will depend on the field type being edited.

The available options when editing multiple resources are as below

Replace all text/option(s) This will overwrite any data curently stored in the field
Find and replace (text fields only) This will replace all instances all matching text with the new text entered
Copy data from field (text fields only) (version 9.0+) This will overwrite any existing data with the value currently stored in another field for the same resource
Prepend text (text fields only) This will prepend the entered text to the existing data
Append text/option(s) For fixed list field types this will add any options to those currently selected, or append text to the end for text fields
Remove text/option(s) This will remove the selected options or text from data currently stored in the field
Revert to state as of date/time (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM) This changes the field value back to the value that was current at the time entered (requires rse_version plugin to be enabled)
