Only full and basic online members of the Resource Sharing Alliance NFP may register to attend this workshop.

The item group editor wizard is one of the enhancements from the RSA upgrade to WorkFlows 3.4.1 in February 2012. The item group editor allows you to search for a group of items and then make changes to all of those items in a single batch. Examples of values that can be changed using the item group editor include:
- Home location
- Price
- Item type
- Item category 1
- Item category 2
- Number of pieces
- Extended information notes (public, circ, and staff notes)
- Statuses for permanent, circulate, and shadowed

The item group editor wizard also has the option to save a list of items to make it easy to restore the original values of those items. For example, fiction books shelved on a display, which are no longer on that display, could be edited back to their original home location code of FICTION using a list saved in the item group editor wizard.

Please bring the following with you to the workshop:
- Your library's WorkFlows TECH login and password
- Two or three batch changes you need to perform on items in your collection

The instructor will send you an email the week prior to the workshop. The email will have a checklist to help you prepare for training, including a link to print the item group editor instructions.

Completion of this workshop is required before you begin using the WorkFlows item group editor.

The workshop is limited to 6 participants. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please cancel your registration in L2 if you are unable to attend.
