To update free text fields using the Batch Operations Tool, first follow the steps for a standard Batch.


Once your search is applied within the Batch tool, select Modify (1) at the left hand side.


NOTE: When using the Batch Operations Tool, always apply your search first and review the search results before progressing.



Next, in the left hand column, find the free text field that you wish to edit and make your selections.


First you must select a Field Action (2).


Update Value

Replaces any existing text in this field for all Records in your search results. "Update and override the previous value with the new value."

Find and Replace

After finalising the changes you are making to the Records, click Execute (4).
