Bulk Admin Actions Tool

by C.W. Holeman III

Be Careful! These actions can make major changes to your LMS that cannot be undone.


Site administrators no longer have to go into users’ profiles individually to make a change or perform an action on each user individually, but now have the power to run actions on large numbers of records simultaneously. 

Bulk Admin Actions -AKA Bulk Actions-  currently have support for changing two types of records: User records, and Module records.

To use the Bulk Actions tool, navigate to the Admin ToolSystemBulk Admin Actions. There are two methods to select your subset of records to modify: you can either use the built-in Rules Engine to make your selection, or import a .csv file. You can download a template file from the Bulk Actions Tool page. We have an animated walk through of this process on The Drop.

The Bulk Admin Actions Tool is only available to Super Admins.

Note: If you chose to Export the Template please be sure not to add anything above or before "username" before the file is uploaded as this can cause it to not upload.
