Easier editing of multiple records
Members of our team constantly receives updates to the items in our database. One such update may contain 500-1000 item changes. Currently we have not found a way quickly update these records. We are literally going through the database view and finding the record, clicking the record, editing the item, save it, repeat 650 more times.
Favorite suggestion would be to make the "spreadsheet" view of the database editable so that someone could copy/paste to multiple rows or quickly tab through the records.
on 5/2/14 we released some enhancements that allow for (1) bulk editing of records and (2) editing data directly in the grid view.
We hope this addresses your comment, but let us know if there are more improvements we can make in this area. Thank you!

Our next release at the beginning of May is going to include the ability to update multiple records and fields at once through a batch update feature. It is also going to include the ability to edit records right from the view by clicking the record/field's cell.
The import to update feature should be coming in a release later this year, but we do not have a specific timeframe. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Any idea on when we can expect these items you are talking about
Thank you for the feedback! There are two features we are looking to implement to address this problem.
First, we are looking to add an option to import a spreadsheet to update existing records. If you are receiving a spreadsheet of item changes, you will be able to simply upload that file and select a unique value to use to match the records in your table with the rows in your spreadsheet to update each.
We are also planning to implement a feature to quickly update records from the table view page. Any additional feedback you would like to provide is appreciated! We are still in the process of determining how we would like to approach this functionality.
