Add CurrentStatus to the list of fields available for update in the Bulk Edit feature.ent.
There are times when I need to review all items in a course, select several from the grid view, and route several to a new status. The easiest way to identify all items associated with a course is by opening the course record and clicking on the Items tab. There is no Route button in this menu and the Bulk Update button, which seems like it should be able to bulk update items to a new status, does not give CurrentStatus as an option. There is no option to search by CourseID from the Course Information Item search on the Home ribbon, so I need to either identify the status of these items from the Course View and then go back to the queues and filter by CourseID or other identifier, or I need to go use the Custom Search for items. These are both too involved for a function that seems it should be a default option. (description created by Kerry Keegan after discussion with Western University staff member)
I would also like for there to be a "Route" button on the course view process ribbon in the Ares client in order to change the "Current Status" on multiple selected items at once.
For example, if we or the instructor wants to change the status to "Cancelled by Instructor" or "Awaiting Review by Staff" for all items tagged as Week 11, or all items with a specific author, etc.
Currently, I can either change the status of each item one-by-one by opening them individually. Another workaround I use when there are a lot to change is to use a custom item search with parameters to find the items in the course that this would apply to, and then using the routing option from that search screen's process ribbon.
Preferably this would be its own button and not a part of the bulk edit items menu since that feature does not work for us (Atlas is already aware of that separate issue of ours).
