I would like to know if it's possible to select multiple entries and update a field for them all at once – for example, give all the selected entries the same category.

  • Are you asking if you can batch assign a custom field value to multiple entries at one time?

  • I'd like to be able to do this (a la Wordpress) [eg what Brad said above] — really handy for re-ccategorising entries. Apr 15, 2018 at 12:27

This plugin does it for Craft 3: https://github.com/kffein/craft-bulk-edit


This has been requested in the Craft feedback forum (vote for it if you like, here and here). But as of Jan 2017, there is no functionality for this in a default Craft install.

The closest thing I've come across is the NP Edit Multiple Elements plugin which allows you to edit multiple entries sequentially meaning that when you hit save it automatically advances to the next entry – faster than the default, but not exactly a bulk edit tool.

See https://straightupcraft.com/craft-plugins/np-edit-multiple-elements

I would love to see a bulk-edit plugin at some point, but someone will need to invest the time in building one.


Via a plugin, yes.

Via the control panel interface, no.
