The existing data manager is fine for maintaining single rows of data, however we currently require functionality to be able to update multiple rows at a time.
Our exact requirement is:
We have a preside object e.g. farm and that has a many-to-many column to an object called animal. If we have a list of farms, it would be nice to be able to do a text search as per the existing data manager search, to select the ones you want to update, and then pick the field you want to set, ie, animal, and then chose the animals you want to apply to the farm. This would then append the selected animals to the farms selected.
@dom - as you mentioned the other day, maybe it would be good to set which fields can be bulk updated as an object property?
We do have a pretty urgent requirement for this, we can either build it ourselves or possibly sponsor the development, but it would be good to understand feasibility/timescales.
