Select Fields to Update

Bulk update option allows you to edit only those fields that are in common to multiple problems. Above figure shows, you can manage the fields that appear in the dropdown lists. You can add new attachments, add tags with the existing tags (check ‘Append Tags to Existing Tags), or replace manual tags (un-check the option). Replacing manual tags does not replace the system generated tags.
