I understand that currently, the only way to bulk update / bulk edit items is do an Excel export - edit - Excel import routine.
It would be helpful if we could export selected items from a saved view, in the same way you can do a bulk delete of items in a saved view.
E.g. I have a saved view that identifies all the items that need to be changed. I would love to be able to click the "select all" tool and then initiate an "export" action on just those selected items ( say, via a download icon alongside the existing trash can icon ).
This would make it much easier to complete the editing and also reduce the risk of errors since it's just a portion of the app items being taken temporarily 'out of action' - in my case, the selected items are not at risk of being edited by other users in the meantime because of the status of these particular items, whereas if I have to export all items there is a high risk of changes occurring mid-process.
