    I agree. It is difficult to remember, once you're on a roll, to set all the attributes you want for each field separately. Even if you do, it's time consuming and tedious. It would be extremely helpful to be able to set attributes per page, then go back and change the outliers and/or set attributes by batch of multiple selections. In addition, reordering fields would be vastly improved by the ability to select multiples.

    I agree with this request. This would save hours of time on large projects.

  • Hey Bret,

    Thanks for stopping by the community to give support to this request! I can definitely relate to this issue. Although it doesn't help after the fact, I do love the copy function to make sure that all fields that need certain attributes will automatically have them without much effort. But I think the ability to batch update fields would save a lot of time so I will definitely pass this along to our product team!

    Lauren, you are correct. Once I realized that I could build a field with the necessary attributes and then copy, change the copied field name, wow,  does that make building go quickly. But, alas, I still have a delete key on my computer and an eraser on my pencils, white board, etc. Or, what is even more frustrating, when you have asked for input from end users, and after you publish they say, "Could you make it...?"

  • Good point Bret!

    The amount of versions created by realizing little things that needed worked on or feedback after the fact is probably incredibly high for all our our users! Thankfully, we have some updates coming to the builder that will hopefully help with that constant cycle of publishing, testing, re-publishing, re-testing, etc.
