Bulk Edit Plugin Wishlist

Hey guys + gals!

I have been working on a new plugin called Bulk Edit. It aims to add the ability to act on a bunch of users at once. I need help defining what actions to implement.

I came up with:

  • Add roles
  • Remove roles
  • Remove users
  • Set roles (set the roles for users to this exact set of roles)

@peak came up with:

  • Reset password

What other actions do you guys think would be nice?

    "Clear drafts", "Delete Messages", "Ban/Unban"

    In my wishlist: "pluggable" actions architecture (i.e. the possibility of creating new actions and let the plugin make them available. Talk about adding complexity. :)

    I just realized that I didn't clarify what the intent was for this plugin. It hooks into the Users view and lets us edit them in bulk using some (as yet fuzzy on details) actions.

    @Tama Do you just want to clear out all drafts? or drafts of a particular user? Same question with Messages. I really like the ban/unban suggestion :D

    @businessdad If the user is able to figure out how to create a "pluggable" action, they could probably just mod it and submit a pull request. I know of one system currently in use that could help me figure this out (@x00's marketplace+purchase addons), so I will look into it. :D

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Delete the messages of a bunch of users, maybe in a certain section - ie if permissions fail for a section.
    Draft clearing in general would be great, or maybe a toggle for users who haven't logged in for x months

    This plugin has been released here: http://vanillaforums.org/addon/bulkedit-plugin

    I plan on implementing resetting of passwords in a future update.

    I think I am going to create a separate plugin for draft/message clearing. I am not sure on this.
