I discovered datacrow just yesterday, but I think it is great! I want to use it for keeping track of my e-book library.
I have a question:
How can I change the properties of several items at once? This usually happens when I am updating the category field of many books. I'd like to be able to select several books, and then say: change the category of all of the to romance.
I changed the category field into a "reference field, multi select". This way I can have a book that is in "study book", "math", and "biology", etc.
(Actually, I added a field called "Category-multi" that does that). Because of this it often happens that I want to reclassify books - what once was just "study book" becomes subdivided.
The update all functionality might help you in this.
Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted. And I thought I read the manual well...
It works great for category. When I use it on a "multi select field" (my category-multi), I do not see the updates, even after clicking apply, and then save. Even if I open one of the items, it does not seem to be changed. But if I exit datacrow and start it again, I see that the items were changed correctly. Strange.
