my only question back to you is "You want us to program a button that saves you a few clicks?"
It's not saving a few clicks. It's 7 days a week of having to go in and search for titles, typing in letters, waiting for the thing to connect, hoping this time it's going to install and go through the optimizing thing smoothly, over and over and over again.
Having the option, any way you include it, that they can all come in in a brief time and being done with the process for the most part except adding new titles occasionally adds up to a nice chunk of time savings. If I'm trying to ID a book and it's already in my catolog it's just a matter of a single handed, no typing, scrolling up and down the title list to check all the posabilities.
I imagine it's not a problem for most users not having 10's of thousands of titles to search through or for 7 days a week but any variation or option that can accomplish the task would speed things up. I just saw the highlight all of them and click once thing and hoped maybe it'd be something easy to allow here. No big change, just let the results box have more than one item highlighted or selected at once. I imagine most users might on occasion find the ability to add multiple results at once from smaller searches helpful also. Like say you only want x titles in your database catologue so you type x, highlight and add them all at once.
You know how pit crews time everything and make little tweeks trying to speed things up for race cars? I look at things the same way here. You shave a few minutes of searching plus a five minute jam or two optimizing a day, multiplied by 7 days a week it adds up to a rather significant time savings that can be used to upload more books. I used to have employee's that speed driving to and from jobs in the company truck on the clock. You shave 5 minutes off the morning drive, five minutes off the evening drive back to the shop and working a six day week you just cost yourself an hour of pay every week and since you're already getting overtime every week that's an hour a week of overtime you're not getting and risking a speeding ticket, higher insurance and all the other risks of higher speed at the same time. Over a full year you just cost yourself the more than a weeks pay added up. This is kinda the opposite. You shave a few minutes here, a few minutes there, a few minutes again in this step and the next thing you know, you're more productive.
