CMS Collection batch edit functionality

Would be helpful to set a field on multiple CMS items at once, like a category field, a switch, et al.

With the limitation of not being able to import CSV files and have them match up to existing Collections data using Reference and Multi-Reference fields, one is left wondering how to apply a Category, Tag, Type, Featured switch, etc., to all of the records just imported. 

A batch edit to CMS records would assist in users migrating from inferior site platforms. ;)

    I ran into this same problem, so I built a solution. If you want to try it out, sign up here -

    2023 and it's still not implemented... I have to edit 1 value in over 200 records one by one...

    I must find replace text in over 100 CMS items. Its quite painstaking because it takes a while to lookup replace then there is a long delay between saving between CMS items. Bulk CMS Find Replace batch edit would be a life saver!

    2017 and this still isn't implemented! I was hoping this would be a feature of the CMS update we recently got.

    Being able to batch edit CMS items would be a life saver - even if its limited to one field at a time.

    Wow I have just realized this is needed and it's painful 😅

    It's essential, especially for e-commerce !

    Imaine having 500+ products and having to edit one thing to all of them one by one. Bulk editing products/cms items is a must and really doesnt sound like a overly difficult feature to implement.

    Duplicate would be ace as a minor feature 'till you can edit fields in the CMS Designer View (without opening an entry) to help streamline creating similar items (even if it doesn't let you save until you've changed Name/Slug)

    YES. I actually thought for a second that I was doing something wrong until I found this thread. Webflow CMS is great for importing, but managing data and having to make edits to it is a pain. Also, not being able to import data and link it to reference fields is another pain. This is a huge need.

    This is important.

    A must feature to have. Currently, there is options to Delete, Draft, Archive.

    Totally needed, if you work with databases you must be able to edit fieds quickly.

    It is a must

    💯 In my case I already had dozens of items and wanted to either just invert a switch or change from a switch to an option field. Webflow is so good for settings this up but once you want to do a change to many existing items it’s a lot of manual effort.

    I've been working a project with lots of data and not being able to import CSV with Reference to another Collection is a real pain.


    Would be nice to have this.

    It would also be great to do what was mentioned above:  be able to import CSV files to match up to Reference fields.  Otherwise, I'd have to edit each group of CMS items separately, instead of having all the tags/categories/etc. map on import.
