Update Items is a gh-element that allows to update already existed items. It is a comfortable instrument for editing data in lots of items at the same time.
Simply select the items you want, click the Update Items button, and change the data in any field. Once applied, all selected items will be updated.
With this button, the user can update a large number of items much more faster. It also allows user to remotely update application data from another application.
