Multi-select "Change Tags" breaks stuff

(Michael Downey) #1

Let’s say I want to add tag Y to every topic that is already tagged X. But some topics with tag X have other tags, A, B, or C.

It seems to me that there’s no way to display a listing of all tag X topics, use the Change Tags button, and add that tag Y without losing the existing A, B, or C tags on the topics that have them.

  1. Can anyone else confirm this, or am I doing something wrong?
  2. Can anything be done to fix it? :slight_smile:

Bulk Actions: "Add Tags" in addition to "Change Tags"
Editing tags (renaming and deleting)

This has come up before…you’re looking for “append tags”, not change tags. Let me see if I can find the previous discussion.

Sure I can support a smarter function here that allows you to add tags. Not sure if it should be the same menu item or not though.

Please make it a new menu option, or a checkbox to toggle append vs replace. There are use cases for both bulk tagging options.


Thanks. We can really use that.
I’d prefer it to be listed along with the other Bulk Change options

My suggestion:
