Actions on objects in a folder

Actions on objects in a folder may be invoked in different ways. BSCW differs between:

      application of the action to several objects in parallel via

      selecting the objects by activating the check boxes on the left-hand side of the object entries, and via

      selecting the action from the multi-selection toolbar;

      application of the action to one specific object via selecting an action entry from the ob­ject’s action menu action.

The actions of the multi-selection toolbar are generally also offered in the individual action menus of the object entries. Some actions are also offered in the top menu bar: under  File  for the cur­rent folder and under  Edit  for the current selection of object entries.


Multi-selection toolbar: Actions on selected objects
