Design-able Mass Update Form

Idea ID 2738312

Design-able Mass Update Form

Allow for the creation of custom Mass Update forms through SBM Composer, potentially leverging the new Custom Quick Forms capability

SBM currently offers powerful capabilities to allow administers (with enough time and skill) to design clean, intuitive, and attractive individual record views.  But as soon as any user presses the "Update All" button, they're dropped into a barely-tamable mess of fields with no ability to order sections, provide instructions, apply custom styling, or run JavaScript to enforce data formatting or other rules.  This Idea is to add a new type of custom Mass Update form, to provide the missing functionality to achieve a 100% clean and customized user experience. 

As there may be challenges around which fields appear as mass-updatable on certain transitions, it could be useful to build this idea off the new Custom Quick Forms, to allow the creation of a custom Mass Update form with bespoke layout, text instructions, and styles, but allow fields themselves to be added within the context of sections as opposed to individually.

Thank you for your consideration.
