Authors can set the guideline in bulk reference edit mode to do reference moves, deletes and uploads, or section moves, without having to wait for reference renumbering.
All sections, citations and references will get updated numbering upon ending bulk mode. Other authors in the guideline are notified that you have initiated the bulk reference edit and will be blocked from interfering with your edits. They get a notification when you end bulk edit mode, and an option to refresh to see the new edits.
While you are in bulk edit mode, other authors can edit PICOs and Recommendations, Section text and reference details, but they cannot move or delete sections or references.
If you walk away from the bulk edit mode without ending it, it will expire after 24 hours. All admins in the guideline can break the bulk edit mode if needed. The changes done up until the bulk edit mode is broken, will then come into effect.
The control to turn bulk edit mode on and off is in the settings menu.
Move PICOs between Guidelines, or share your PICOs with other developers for adaptation
(Expected release a bit later than the rest: 6-7.june)
You always had the possibility of exporting your content as data, but now authors can now download a zip file containing a PICO with all data, connected files and references. This zip file can then be uploaded into any guideline. You can use these Zip files to share your evidence with other organizations, or move between your own guidelines.
When an author uploads a PICO from such a zip file, there is an automatic email sent to administrators of the guideline it was taken from. That way you can keep track of how your content is being used.
If the zip file contain references that are duplicates of references you already have in the reference list of the guideline you are importing it into, we will use the existing references instead of importing duplicates. You will be notified about this during the upload.
The imported PICO will retain the ID of the 'mother'-PICO, and we plan to add features to enable communication of changes done to the 'mother' PICO to the administrators of the 'child'-PICO, and vice versa.
