Bulk update needs the option to add to existing not just override.

The bulk update feature causes me issues because I can't add to existing, I can only over ride the existing. This is an issue for tagging additional information to a field that already has some values assigned.

    Hi @Rebecca Sanders 

    There's no current update unfortunately, I'm sorry. I checked with the team and they have it in their backlog but there are currently other priorities for them.

    I will do my best to convince them to move it up in the priority list. There is one workaround though, it isn't pretty but it works.

    You could export all your data to a spreadsheet and make sure it included the ID's of the items in Pipedrive. You can then update the data in the spreadsheet and reimport this so that it has all the data you need. Again, not pretty but works. I'll continue to let the team know we need an easier way to do this. Check out this article for some tips on the import:

    Thanks @Mike van der Valk, yes I have multiple workarounds depending on the situation but it does affect our team daily. I anticipate in a few months, we will have so many variations in tagging that this would become such an issue that we would need to very seriously consider moving CRM's. This is how important this fix is to us successfully managing our customer data. Hope that helps to convince them.

    Cheers

    Hi @Rebecca Sanders 

    I went to check with the developers after your message and they mentioned they are aware of the problem and are actually working on this now. It's a new way of editing in Pipedrive so is not done in a few days but definitely will take weeks, but good news, it's being addressed.

    Fabulous, we can hold down the fort in the meantime.
