Hi Ranju,

If you use the admin search to search for all items in division A, you can then use the "batch edit" feature, displayed on the results page, to append division B to all those items in one go.

(If you've not used the batch edit feature before, I'd suggest trying it out on a very small result set first).

Hi List,

we have a task of adding divisions/department to existing (several hundred) eprints in our IR.

So, currently the items are assigned department/division "A" and now we need to give them Department "A" and Department "B". What would be the most effecient way of doing this?

I know we can always edit individual item from the interface. However I was wondering if there is any other way too, since we have a very large number of items to be edited.
