APP Review: Sensei Bulk Update


If you are working in a PMO, you know the feeling of preparing the monthly or quarterly portfolio report for those important business stakeholders. Quite often you will find that some data is missing, or specific projects have been tagged wrongly. In these situations, what you need is the ability to quickly make those important changes across multiple projects of interest. The “Sensei Bulk Update” allows for exactly this kind of efficient approach, in a user friendly interface. In terms of time saved, and the general design and experience, I would rate it 5 stars out of 5 possible.

Here is just one example of how the process could be when using the Sensei Bulk Edit application.

1. Choose the projects that need to be modified

2. Select which fields you want to make changes to

3. Change data to the correct or missing values

4. Pulish the changes

This now changes all the data across the projects in one take. Compared to altering data on a per-project approach this would potentialy save you hours of PMO administrative work every time you are preparing for the portfolio reporting.

The App is available from the SharePoint app-store: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/store/sensei-bulk-updatetm-WA104182270.aspx
