Story #82206: list module enhancements/bugfixes
un-/hide multiple records with one click
using the clipboard 1 to 3 (other than normal) you can do some edits/ changes to multiple records at once:
- copy/move (with the actual clipboard,
but you can't hide/unhide multiple records at once.
clicking fast multiple lightbulbs (Extended view) an rebuild/reload of the BE will limit you to just a few records which change status (by racing requests?)
would it be possible to un-/hide multiple (selected) records with one click?
would it be possible to have further action to multiple (selected) records at once?

- Status changed from New to Closed
this is already possible!
- click on the '+' next to the table header and select the field you want to change (e.g. hide) and click button "set fields".
- enable clipboard 1-3 and tranfer the elements you want to edit
- press edit icon next to the new header (called "edit the '<fieldname>' of the listed records
tested with 4-6 but IMO should work since a long time that way

with 7 LTS hide/unhide is now using ajax, would that be enough for you in the meantime? for next versions like 8-9 there are thoughts to add features which are support "power-users" even more, like having better mass editing.

so it is easier to en-/dis-able multiple records in a short. there is a difference to the intended behaviour of having multiple records switched at the same time.
especially if you need this small timeframe and having a not so simple selection. and selecting all records (with the option to unselect just a small number) would be spare a lot of clicks.
maybe in 8

I assume we still have an option to select multiple records for further action. On touch devices selections often are done with a mini-slider instead of simple checkboxes.
the other aspect is the question how to select the action to execute with all selected records. till now there were individual buttons above the checkbox column. with a lot of actions there might not be enough space for all that buttons. so you always can do a 'drop-down' (on touch devices sometimes as a popup) selection (with an execute button)

from here: #65069 there could be a possible solution: http://tympanus.net/Development/MultiElementSelection/index.html
