Function documentationCarry Out Mass Change in Operations

 

You can use this function in list editing to change the field contents of different fields for several order operations at the same time. You can execute this mass change directly or in the background.

On various tabs, which correspond to the tabs in an order operation, you can select the fields that you want to change, and specify the new value.

Recommendation Recommendation

To keep an overview, form small logical units of fields that you want to change.

End of the recommendation.

If an order is locked by another user, or the operation change that you desire is not possible (for example, because a required field would be deleted), the system terminates the mass change.

Prerequisites

You have used list editing to create a list of order operations to be processed.
