Yes we dropped bulk actions for price in 8.5.
As all the underlying code for products has changed in 8.5 that page no longer worked without a complete rewrite.
We decided before rewriting it , lets analyze what people are trying to achieve with the page... Haven't had time to get back to it yet.
Open to what would of been better with the old bulk update prices page.
If you solely rely on standard markup, bulk price setting is no big deal. However, here are legit situations where bulk price settings save tons of time.
Final Note: if you are seriously planning to reinstate this, let me know. I had further ideas about improvements on the old model, but without seeing it live, I can't articulate those changes. Perhaps you have a pre v8.5 FC I can access for this.
- Updating prices for hundreds of custom products (that do not reply on standard markup)
- Example 1: I have over 100 custom products for my DecoPro service all using the same rate $XXX.00, I want to increase my rate by 20% - manually updating products will take hours, where bulk price would take a few minutes.
- Example 2: I am setting up 300 products for a DecoPro client now, all with override pricing (no standard markup). When customer decides to to update pricing, rather than editing every products, a simple 10% or flat rate increase with bulk pricing is the way to go.
