Mass-review / Update of non-compliant items
First, sorry for the long post.
Might I suggest a feature that is similar in output format to the Tag view output, but shows a list of changes for a type of tag, say Track Name with the current entry in one column and the suggested change in another and a third column with the commit button, but also a global commit button that will make all suggested changes.
For example, I have about 5000 entries that have invalid tag entries. These can vary from Genre to Track Name, but there are a lot of entries that need the same type of change, where if I select the Why? next to an entry, I get suggestions to change the type or track name with a button. With 5,000 of these, it isn't really feasible to do all of these one at a time. But in a list format, say with a filter to show all invalid track names, I can filter that down to a few batches, say if it did 100 or so at a time, then showed the name, suggestion, change button (similar to the one on each entry now) and a batch change button.
Jim, you're probably not missing something. The automation settings are in the settings page, where automation is possible.
I tend to take the approach of making a rule manual first, then after some testing and iteration, make it (potentially) automatic.
If there's a specific rule you think can be automated, add that as a separate idea.
Piggy backing on here (if this should be a separate suggestion, I can do that, too): Along these lines, maybe I'm missing something, but there should be a way for Bliss to automatically make all changes without our having to click -anything-. Or maybe there is, and I don't see it?
I'm trying to beat a 20+ year old collection of ripped CDs, etc, into submission, and having to click 5-10 buttons per 100-entry Inbox page is... not very blissful. Seems like it might take me forever.
Maybe allow "automatically repair" options for everything Bliss touches, so we can choose if we want to be that daring or not?
More importantly, thanks for the -fabulous- software!
I've had similar comments that it gets difficult to work with multiple track name fixes on the same album page, because compliance re-assessment occurs after each fix.
The Inbox might be closer to what you want, although it uses the same button-to-describe-fix approach. Thoughts on that?
