How to use a bulk editor in Localistico?

Introduction on how to edit tags, opening hours, closures and openings in Localistico with the bulk editor.

Editing tags, business opening hours, special hours closures and reopenings is now possible with a new bulk editor. Instead of downloading the location information on Excel and then uploading the edited file back into Localistico, you may now perform some bulk edits inside the tool. 

Start bulk editing by selecting the venues you would like to edit. You may select each venue by ticking the box or applying a filter. If you used a filter, you may select the current page or all the venues that apply to the filter:

Once you have selected the venues you would like to edit, you may:

  • Edit the tags, opening hours and special hours by clicking on the pen-icon.
  • Mark venues closed, temporarily closed or open by clicking on the flag icon.

After editing, you may also:

  • Publish the edited locations by clicking on the bigger arrow icon.
  • Export the venues with the new edits by clicking on the smaller arrow icon. 

Editing tags with the bulk editor

With the bulk editor you may assign new tags for the venues by selecting them from the list or create new ones by typing in the field. 

Please note that some tags that appear selected in the list might be applied only to a part of the selected venues:

  • [ ] - Empty box means that none of the selected venues have this tag assigned to them.
  • [-] - Hyphen inside the box means that some selected venues have this tag assigned to them.
  • [v] -V inside the box means that all the selected venues have this tag assigned to them.

Click on update when you have finished editing the tags. Once the bulk editing has completed you may:

  1. Continue editing the previously selected venues by clicking return to your selection.
  2. Clear the selection and select new venues to edit.
