    Hi there IAC, 

    Thanks for this idea... It is not currently on our list, but I will certainly bring it up to the product development team!

    Good news!  Just wanted to inform you that we completely revamped your ability to edit your paper, giving you the ability to delete multiple articles with one click!  

    Take a  look for more information!

    I am aware of the changes that have been in effect for a few weeks now. However, unless I am missing something you still cannot delete multiple articles with one click. You can blacklist or delete an article with one click but, you cannot choose multiple articles and delete.

    @IAC,

     

    Apologies, somehow your last comment slipped through and was not noticed.  

    I don't see a way to further minimize the number of clicks when selecting multiple articles and then deleting.  

    Can you explain what you envision?

    Best, Julia

    My thought was something along the lines of check boxes for the articles and then delete. Similar to Gmail, Wordpress, etc. where you can bulk delete items via check boxes. 

    For my weekly paper hundreds of articles are curated. I end up with 20-40. Being able to check multiple articles for bulk delete would be a huge time saver. 

    Thanks,

    Brett

    Hi Brett,

    Thanks so much for your thoughts/feedback.  If I am not mistaken, the number of clicks is actually one less using the method our programmer implemented.

    With the new way to delete, you click EDIT and then click the X delete icon for each article you wish to delete.  Unless I am mistaken, this would be similar to what you are suggesting, which is to first select (click) on each article and then click delete (an extra click in fact)!

    Best, Julia
