'Bulk Change' of Privacy - Suggest "Change by Date"

+11 votes

I'm managing about 600 profiles now.  TODAY I WAS changing the long-ago born (and long-dead) from green-dot to open-dot USING THE BULK-CHANGE TOOL.

ALTHOUGH THE BULK-CHANGE TOOL IS AN IMPROVEMENT OVER MAKING THE CHANGES ONE PROFILE AT A TIME, IT STILL REQUIRES A POINT-CLICK FOR EACH PERSON.  That is tedious, and it invites errors and re-work and shortcuts.  (And it is painful for me, due to disability.)

I suggest a bulk-change OPTION FOR "CHANGE BY date-of-birth" (and only for those profiles not checked as "still living").

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT, ELLEN.  Any MORE support amongst WTers?

Yes, I'd support this.

Additionally, I'd like for profiles to be automatically changed from Public to Open when they reached the age of 200 years. That would especially please the profile managers who are annoyed when they receive messages asking them to change the Privacy status on those profiles.

Thank you, Dennis, but no.  This posting was to suggest a change to the Bulk-Change tool itself.

But I can see where the posting does not make that clear.  I've re-written the posting to be more explicit.

Thanks for your input!
