Drupal 7 – Update multiple nodes at once in a Views

Sometimes we may want to update multiple nodes at once. Views Bulk Operations may help if you want to set the same value for a field of multiple nodes. But if you want to set different values among a set of nodes, then Views Bulk Operations could not help.

In Drupal 6, the Editview module may help but unfortunately there is no Drupal 7 version. An alternative solution could be done by editablefields module.

1. Download and enable the module. (I used the 7.x-1.x-dev version)

2. Create a view with table format. (This is not necessary but better user interface)

3. Add the desired fields. For those which should be editable, set the display formatter to editable as depicted below.

 

4. Now you could edit those values on the view page ajaxly.

 

Done =)
