Views Bulk Operations Makes Mass Updates Easy in Drupal

bolt module drupal

Views Bulk Operations (VBO) is one of those modules whose name and Drupal.org description doesn’t indicate how useful it is.

Here’s the short version of what VBO does it:

  • Allows you quickly select all the items displayed in a View.
  • Allows you to perform advanced operations on all the items you selected.

So, VBO enables you to greatly speed up your site administration, particularly if you have a lot of data:

  • Want to quickly delete 1000’s of user or comments? VBO can do that.
  • Want to update 100’s of content items at once? VBO can do that.

Let Robert Ring introduce you to VBO in this video:

This video is part of our Better Drupal Administration class, which is full of useful tips like this.
