This article describes the process of Bulk Editing Recipes.
This allows for the editing of basic fields only, such as Recipe Sets, Categories and flags on multiple recipes. However, it does not allow for the editing of Prices of PLU References within this area, or recipe ingredients/quantities as this can be completed in other areas of the portal.
This is a useful tool to be able to complete a task in mass operation.
