Release Notes

Updated the support for DateTimes if the currency locale differs from the site locale. No longer has issues with leaving DateTimes empty, some basic support for field validation. No extensive testing done there though.

Reviews for this release

This is an excellent tool for batch updating Managed Metadata, however if you've also got Yes/No columns, or choice fields, these do not work properly, or update all in one go (see Issues tab). If those issues can be ironed out, or if you just dedicated it to Managed Metadata, this could be 5 star.

looks good, but i would check why in some columns not save changes

This is an excellent piece of software. OOB, SP2010 does not let you edit metadata terms in "DataSheet View" mode as it locks columns that are terms. Which means you cannot do bulk updates to metadata terms! Enter SP2010 Batch Edit to solve the problem. All you do is multi-select the rows you want to update, then press the SP2010 Batch Edit button on the ribbon, set your metadata terms, and press OK. That's it. Brilliant! I would however suggest this nice piece of software be renamed to something like "Metadata and Terms Batch Update". I know terms are metadata, but "terms" and "metadata" are keywords when searching for something like this; so these two keywords should be in the title; otherwise it is quite hard to spot when searching. But well worth the find! Excellent work by the author.
