Bulk Editing in Pocket on your Computer
Bulk Edit helps you perform actions on groups of items at once. These actions include: Archive, Favorite, Tag, and Delete.
How to Use Bulk Edit
- Go to Pocket for Web
- Click the Bulk Edit button in the top toolbar.
- Select the items you wish to edit by clicking on them. When selected, the item will highlight in teal.
- Once you’ve made your selection, click the action in the top toolbar that you wish to perform: Add a Tag, Favorite, Archive or Delete. If you’re in your Archive, the + button will show, letting you Re-add the selected items to your List.
To leave Bulk Edit mode after making any changes, click the Done button.
Note: The ability to select items in groups by holding the Shift key is not currently available in Pocket for Web. We plan to bring this functionality back in a future update.
Can I select all items in my List or Archive?
Due to technical limitations, a Select All button is not available. To select a group of items at once, we currently recommend clicking each item as shown above, or opening Pocket's mobile apps to select items with a quick tap.
Can I use Bulk Edit to remove Tags?
It is only possible to add Tags to a group of items at once. If you would no longer like to use a particular tag, you can delete it and it will be removed from all items. Learn about Tagging in Pocket on your Computer.
