Improvements for Multi-Edit



Multi-Edit works fairly well at updating multiple items at once..

I would like to see a couple of improvements:

1. The ability to select a group of sensors with shift-click. Shift-click on the management page selects all the sensors for a device but not across multiple devices. 2. When you select an item that is below the fold, the screen jumps back to the top of the page when the details tool appears. You then must scroll down again to see the sensors that you want to select.

Thanks for your consideration..

1. You should be able to use ctrl click and shift click to select multiple sensors across devices. You cannot select the devices themselves with sensors selected but you can select multiple sensors and edit the settings. To only select a few sensors from another device, you can start it with a ctrl click then select another group.

2. Since this list is being repopulated with each new selection, the refresh is forcing it to go to the top of the sensor list on the right. I'll see if this can be changed but it hasn't been requested frequently so we may not have time to invest in it.
