Tips and Troubleshooting for using Mass Edit Tool

  • Prior to compiling and executing a mass edit action, consider creating reports to try and model the expected outcome of your mass edit operation.
  • Build reports for the following objects: Call to Action and CS Tasks with the criteria you intend to use on the mass edit tool.

Example of Deleting CTA using CTA Mass Edit option

This is a recommendation for large scale Mass edit/delete actions. By creating correlating reports that model the record count for your intended action, you can better manage expectations and outcomes for large scale edits/deletion operations.

Here is the outcome noted in the associated reports after the Delete operation.

Call to Action Report:

From the below image, you can see that the Rakesh CTA is deleted, after performing the Mass Edit - Delete action. Similarly, you can try this for Tasks.

Notes: If you have a large number of CTA’s created from a rule that you want to delete, add a “Created Date” field to your Mass Edit query. This date field combined with a CTA name field should allow you to find and match the correct number of CTA’s created by the rule.

Receive Email Notification Post Mass Edit

The Admins will receive an Email notification, once the execution of any action mentioned above to CTAs or Tasks is proceeded successfully using CTA Mass Edit feature.
