Update cases in bulk to set the values of case labels and descriptions in one
step, without manually interacting with individual forms. As a result, you save time and
reduce the risk of small errors in case details.
Consider an example of an
insurance sales application. After customer service representatives (CSR) make hundreds of
insurance offers to existing customers in a month, as part of a new marketing campaign, the
company upgrades all offers from the previous week to the premium level. CSRs can update the
labels and descriptions of all the eligible cases in bulk, and save time by avoiding manual
changes in each case separately.

applications that you build with Theme UI-Kit support bulk
