CloudNine Analyst: Is it possible to tag multiple records (bulk tag) at the same time?

Yes, you are able to bulk tag from search, filter, view, and 24-hour thread results.

In CloudNine Analyst, you can bulk tag in Chronological Item List, Sort By - 24hr Thread, and Thread Group (24-hour thread group with chat bubbles).

The Chronological Item List is located on the Project Metadata page. To access this page, in the Project Dashboard select review from the top menu options or Review Project Metadata from the fly-out menu on the right.

SORT BY: 24hr Thread (Chronological) 

You are able to bulk tag 24-Hour and Master threads from the Chronological Item List when you enable the SORT BY - 24HR Thread (Chronological) option.  This allows you to quickly tag items in threads without having to go inside each thread and bulk tag.

For illustration purposes in this article, a Control Number filter is applied with the 24hr Thread sort enabled.

  2. Your filter/search results are returned in the Chronological Item List and sorted by 24hr Threads. Only one item per responsive thread is returned. 
  3. Select the BULK TAG/UNTAG RESULTS option at the bottom of the page. The Bulk Tag/Untag feature appears. At the top, there are two options for tagging: 
    • APPLY TO ALL ITEMS WITHIN 24HR THREADS IN THE CURRENT RESULTS: Tags only items within 24hr threads.

It is possible to bulk-tag 24HR or Master threads without enabling the 24hr Sort.  It is also possible to bulk-tag both the 24HR and Master threads at the same time. Neither workflow is recommended as it could lead to undesirable tag results.
