What Mass Actions Are Supported?

Follow

Admins can apply some actions to multiple records simultaneously to save time and cut down on repetitive tasks. Like in other parts of the LMS, the actions available are context sensitive, and differ depending on the type of record the admin is working with. 

With Mass Actions, time consuming and repetitive tasks become simple. Using report filtering options, you can narrow down and select the applicable records you wish to change. Absorb supports mass actions on up to 1000 records at a time. You can select all records using the Select All function in the top right corner of the report.

As an example, let's say you have a need to mark all 800 users in a particular department as inactive.

  1. Filter the USERS report by that particular department to reduce it down to just the applicable Users
  2. Next expand your report's page to accommodate the appropriate number or records. (If this is over 1000, you will need to repeat these steps per 1000 records.)
  3. In the top-left of the report grid, choose the SELECT ALL button (just underneath the GENERATE REPORT option)
  4. Choose Deactivate Users from the Action Menu.

Whenever you have selected multiple items in a report, the Mass Actions menu becomes active and the right hand context menu will only include actions available on multiple records. 

Like other menus in the LMS, this menu is context sensitive. The options for Mass Actions that are available will change depending on the content you are selecting.  The list below highlights the Mass Actions that can be completed by the Admin as they navigate through each page of the Admin interface of the LMS.
