Mass editing fields

    When making mass edits to a new field, is there a way to copy and paste the same data into a field all at once, rather than going through every record to enter the text?

    For example, if a added a field called “Space” that has the default field value of a keyboard “space,” that is great for all future records that are added, however, for all the existing ones I have to go to the new “Space” field and enter a keyboard “space” into the field on every record. If there was a way to highlight multiple rows in a column and simply cut and paste the keyboard “space” into all the rows that would save time.

    Thank you!

    It would be a very nice and necessary improvement to TF.
    I am aware of Brendans tough job on improvements for TF, but it is like the following formula:

    IF (TF >> Bento AND (it is “the only mature replacement for Bento”)
    (people will use it) AND
    (# of records >> 1000) AND

    Sorry Brendan, but we we users are so enthusiastic that we go on asking for feature requests. Consider it as a huge “THANK YOU”.

    Heheh… No worries Rudy. I’m happy to receive feature requests. Tap Forms was built on feature requests from customers. It just takes me time to do them. I can’t get all feature requests in of course, but I do try to get the ones in that make the most sense. Batch editing is a good idea. Just will take time and thought. But there’s nothing in there now for that.

    Batch editing functionality would a wonderful addition. I’d love to be able to make wide sweeping changes both globally and within defined parameters, including font and typeface changes etc.

    A big thank you for another year of massive improvements, Brendan. TF has been my most used and relied upon application since 2009…

    I would love to be able to change the value of fields of some or all of the records of a particular form, for instance clear a text field or check box of multiple records in a form. I need to do this frequently and at the moment I need to modify each record individually.

    with ll the approvements and added possibilities there is a desperate need to alter/edit some data in several forms. Where a copy/move function between forms would be great!

    Or is there a good and user-friendly sqlite editor available witch will do the trick?
