Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.7. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Datalynx Tabular view.

This view can be used to display data in a tabular form or to bulk edit entries. The strength of the view is, that it enables the user to edit multiple entries simultaneously and to bulk update entries with one click. Combined with filters, this view can be used to manage many entries at once.

Entry template

The only setting, that differs from the general view settings is the setting "Entry template". Tabular view provides more tags for these settings.

Bulkd update tag

%%fieldname:bulkedit%% has to be placed in the header of the table and is automatically created for each field available in the datalynx activity. Note: Not all fields support bulk update. Please try before you use it.

How to use it

  1. Select the entries, you want to change by activating the checkbox of each entry
  2. Click on the bulk edit button in the header row of the table
  3. In the header row activate the checkbox of the column you want to bulk edit
  4. The value you put in the first row of the table (the first row after the table header) will be used for all other entries. All other entries will be overwritten with the value given in the first row.
