Bulk Updates- Lab

Bulk Updates is a feature that allows for multiple pieces of documentation to have updates made to them at one time.  Enabling bulk updates in your lab class allows you to Approve, Reject, Return, and add comments to many labs at once.  

Warning: Using bulk updates can be efficient for making simultaneous changes, but it carries the risk of unintended consequences or errors due to the wide-ranging impact of the updates.
