How to remove or add a checkbox property from multiple companies without overwriting data.
Jun 8, 2018 10:33 AM
I have added a new value in a custom check box (multiple option) contact property.
I have selected all the contacts I wish to bulk edit using filters.
I would ike to add a new check against this new value based on the filter. However I have tested the aproach on two contacts and found that I overwrite the existing data.
New Contact property has options A, B, C, D and I have now added E
Contact 1: Has A, B and D checked
Contact 2: has B, and D checked
If I bulk edit these two contacts by simply adding a check against option E. Both contacts now ONLY have option E checked (their previous data - deleted).
I note there is a solution proposed (based on company properties) that involves exporting the existing list editing and then re-importing over the top but this seems awkward and inneffecient. We will need to do this on a regular basis.
