Looking for some solution for batch items update I’ve run into the following problem: when I clicked a checkbox in top right corner of the list (actually a document library) “All Items” view, the browser displayed an error:
You cannot select more than 100 items at once.
The problem was discussed on the TechNet forum (Selecting more than 100 files in Document Library) and the limit of maximum 100 items per one batch update (like check-in, delete etc.) is described on MSDN:
Limit: Bulk operations
Maximum value: 100 items per bulk operation
Limit type: Boundary
Notes: The user interface allows a maximum of 100 items to be selected for bulk operations.
What is interesting and what was not mentioned in TechNet topic, the limit is controlled on client side by a script, what I will show.
