Using Multi-Item Actions

Multi-Item Actions can be used to select, delete, publish, or unpublish multiple pieces of content at a time. Publishing a piece of content means that it will be viewable by users on the live MediaKron site. Unpublishing content means that it will no longer be viewable on the site. However, unlike when the "Delete" option is used, the piece of content will still be available in the Content workspace.

To work with multiple items, select the items by using the check boxes on the left of the content list.

After selecting the items, scroll up and use the Operations menu to delete, publish, or unpublish and select either the delete, publish, or unpublish option from the drop-down menu to perform the specified task on the checked items and click EXECUTE.

A message will appear asking to confirm that the correct
content has been chosen. Click CONFIRM to delete, publish,
or unpublish these items. To keep these pieces and return to
the previous page, click Cancel.

Once confirmed, a message should appear that verifies that the selected items have been deleted, published, or unpublished.
