Overview overview

Bulk Offline Update lets you update all the channels in bulk. It avoids the hassle of navigating to a particular channel and update the content. Rather, you can update all the content in channels for one specific project in one instant.

You can also schedule this activity for a time of lower network traffic.

The Bulk Offline Update feature is optimized to update only those channels that have been modified.
