Just one point that it highlighted though which may be worth thinking about modifying when convenient. The fact that the batch update is triggered not by a positive ‘start button’ but by the action of selecting one of several items in the drop-down list, with no opportunity to check and confirm that the selected item is the intended choice
Not quite accurate Ron.
When you select “Add missing death records” from the drop down it only a) opens that particular tool, and b) checks to see if any changes might be needed. It then displays the first change it finds. Below that are two operational buttons : “Update” and “Update all”. Only by clicking on one of those will any change to your data be initiated.
The same is true for each batch update tool. At no time does any edit happen without specifically clicking on an update / update all button.
