You can update multiple people at once without needing to open each person's profile individually. This could be used, for instance, if you wanted to mark a list of 30 people who attended a membership class as having the status "Member."
To do update multiple people:
- From the People page, you can run an advanced search by using the options on the left hand side of the screen (under Show More Filter Options), by using a specific tag, or by simply clicking the check mark next to each profile.
- On the right, click More Options and then Update People.
- Select the field you'd like to update, select the value the field should be updated to, and click "Update."
