Edit column data like a spreadsheet

Post by tdr » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:04 pm

Hello
In the events view, is it possible to edit a cell in a column - aka like a spreadsheet? I have a bunch of events for which I want to update a custom field value, and currently I need to open up each one at a time to edit and save. It would be a huge productivity benefit if I could edit in situ.
thanks for a great product, going onto 4 years now and can't work without it!
Thanks

Hi tdr, thank you for the feedback. I'll consider improving the Event List to allow editing like a spreadsheet. In the meantime, if you have to bulk-edit many events, it might be easier to export to Excel, perform your bulk edits in Excel, and then import back into VueMinder.

To export to Excel, use the "File -> Export -> Export Events" menu command. After editing the events, save the spreadsheet and then use the "File -> Import -> Import Events" menu command. As long as you don't change the event titles and dates, VueMinder will recognize the events are updates to your existing events, not new events.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or suggestions.
