Multiple updates

Table of contents


It is possible to update multiple objects at the same time in Ongoing WMS. For instance, say you have 200 articles, and you want to set their weight to 2 kg. It is possible to update each article one-by-one, but that will take a lot of time. By using the multiple update function in Ongoing WMS, you can update all your articles at the same time.

The following objects support multiple update:

In some circumstances, you also delete several objects at the same. For instance, it is possible to delete several articles at the same time as along as none of the articles are in stock.

Basic procedure

Performing a multiple update always follows the same basic procedure, regardless of what type of object is being updated:

  1. Find the items which you want to update.
  2. Tick the items.
  3. Click on Update.
  4. Select which fields you wish to update and input the new values.
  5. Click on Update.

Performing a multiple delete follows this basic procedure:

  1. Find the items which you want to delete.
  2. Tick the items.
  3. Click on Delete.

Note that multiple delete may not always be possible. For instance, you can only perform a multiple delete of articles as long as none of the articles are in stock.
