Batch Edit Content Type

Nov 8, 2011 at 6:56 PM

We are using managed metadata and would like to change the content type for a multiple selection of documents. However, the content type is not one of the items displayed in the popup window as editible. How can I get the content type to display in the edit window or better yet how can I customize what fields are editable in the edit window?

At this point there are no plans for supporting the changing of ContentTypes, the fields that are shown are detirmend by the following 'query',


true) && field.FieldRenderingControl != null && (field.ShowInEditForm ?? false || field.CanBeDisplayedInEditFormSo fields that are shown by default in the newform and are shownineditform will be displayed. If you want to change that you can either use tooling to hide fields from the EditForm, and thus from the BatchEdit.

We just bought a tool that does this for list items and documents,, taxonomy fields and content types dynamically updated in bulk, quite a nice interface, hope that helps
