Mass Update is a very powerful tool that can update attributes for large groups of trees to one new value. This tool is located under Tools -> My Data -> Mass Updater. Generally, the Mass Updater is only available for admin level users.
To Mass Update:
- Select a layer to update. Click “Open”.
- Filter your records by using the advanced filter. If no filter is applied, the update will be applied to all of your records for the selected layer.
- Select the changes you want to make.
- Click “Update”
**The records shown are a sample of the data to be changed, limited to 100 records.
Using the routines tool, you can set up updates to several fields and save them to use again. To create a routine: Select all the fields and values you would like to update, select Save Routine. You will be prompted to create a new routine or overwrite an existing routine, then give your routine a specific name, and click save. Your routine will now show up in the My Routines dropdown. You can delete old routines by selecting the Manage button.
You can use the mass updater to delete filtered selections of trees. After you have filtered down to the trees you want to delete, navigate to the mass updater, and select the Delete Selection button at the bottom of the window. A screen will pop up to warn you that you will be permanently deleting your data. If you want to continue, click Yes and the trees will be deleted.
