    I agree. Trying to edit a portfolio database and would love to do this even with categories.

    This was my questions too but no reply. What fields can I mass edit? How do I mass edit relationships?

  • Hey guys,

    This is a great suggestion and also something we hope to add in the future. Currently you can use card layout to quickly drag and drop items to a new status, contact etc. Alternatively you can use excel export/import to update multiple items at once.

    Thanks for your input! We have it listed :)

    *** First of all a call to forum moderators, I think u should regroup similar requests into one, otherwise doesn't seem fair for a votation process. If we vote for a requests in 2 different places the result is not the same than regrouping all the votes in one same place. ***

    This request already exists here with (at the moment) 45 votes: https://help.podio.com/hc/communities/public/questions/200510218-Bulk-edit-edit-items-easier-access-needed-reduced-clicky-desired-

    I copy and paste the answer I posted in the other existing request:

    "Is great to hear that Podio team has made some upgrades related to this request, but I think it's not enaugh.

    We should be able to update multiple items from, at least, the table view by (same metodology WordPress uses to bulk edit items):

    1. Selecting them by it's checkbox
    2. Clicking on an "Edit Selected" button
    3. Then one of each template item fields would show up empty at the top of the page
    4. Now, any field we'd fill up would replace the contents of that same field in any of the selected items
    5. Click "Save" button and that's it!!

    Another WordPress based implementation would be the ability to edit itmes individualy from, at least, the table view.

    Since all App items use the same template, these 2 ideas would be doable and extremely timesaving."

    Hi Sara - this would also be great for me. The drag and drop feature does not seem to work in the bugs app: i just want to mark all my current (old, outdated) into a category or 'archived', so I can start from scratch without having to reinstall the app. Can that be done easily ? (or perhaps on the backend by you guys ?)

    @Enrique good point! We are already considering threads with the same topic when we evaluate ideas internally and add the votes :)

    @Simon, why doesn't it work? What is your setup? You can always write us a ticket via https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and we are happy to look at your setup.

    I can't see any replies from Podio team.

    There seems to be a flaw in the process... Three years old requests...

    Hi Andre, 

    As it was mentioned in the earlier post, you can edit multiple items via GlobiFlow: http://www.globiflow.com/blog/editing-a-podio-view-as-a-spreadsheet.php, which is now a part of Citrix and is included in our Premium package. 

    Still, native Podio bulk item editing is on our 'to do list', so it's great to see it's still a desired feature!
