Batch Edit

Upload records from file

Use a text file of barcodes to import records into Item Status for batch editing. This technique is helpful when using shelf list reports to update copy records.

  1. Create the barcode file
    1. Starting from a report, copy the barcode cells
      • be sure to copy ONLY the barcodes, not the column header or other cells
      • Work in batches of about 50-100 barcodes; the more barcodes/records loaded, the longer updates take to complete
    2. Open Notepad
      • Do not use Word or other rich text editor
    3. Paste the barcodes into the Notepad file
    4. Save the file somewhere easy to find and name it Barcodes
  2. Import the records
    1. In Evergreen, open Item Status
    2. Click "Choose File" and open the Barcodes file
    3. Records will start to load
  3. Edit the records
    1. Select all of the records by clicking the check box in the table header
    2. Click Actions, and select Edit Items
    3. Update the necessary fields
    4. Click Save & Exit
