What it is
This feature allows you to update data on companies, leads and activities in bulk by importing them on an excel template.
Using the update function you can also delete current existing values and leave them empty.
How it works
To access the bulk update, go to any Bloobirds' list and click on BULK ACTIONS.
Prepare the template
Prepare the list of objects you want to update, you will need to include a column with their Id and another one with the field/s you want to update filled in with the new values.
For example, we want to update the lead's status information.
To find out the lead's ID, use the list filters to trim down the list of leads you want to update.
And download it to your computer.
Below the column Id you will find the lead's Id.
Make sure the format of the data is right before uploading. On this article you will find important general guidelines on how to prepare your data such as the format of phone numbers, dates and most common errors when importing.
