Cannot Batch Edit/Remove Item Alerts

Bug Description

Affects only new-style item alerts, EG 3.1+

Adding this as a bug since you could batch edit/remove old-style alert messages.

Currently there is no way to batch edit or remove item alerts that belong to different items.

For example, you might be doing a project and want to remove all alerts from a certain section of items. Currently the only way to do this one at a time.

To test:
1. Add a few items to Item Status that have alerts on them.
2. Highlight all the items in the list.
3. Go to Actions>Edit>Manage Item Alerts. Only the first item's alerts will appear.
4. Make your edits or click "Clear" to remove an alert. Click "OK" to save.
4. Click the "Manage" button on a couple of the items to spot check that only the changes were saved to the first item.

If you have multiple items highlighted while on the Copy Editor, clicking the "Item Alerts" button only brings up blank new alert form. Alerts can only be edited when a single item is highlighted.

There should be a way to batch edit/clear item alerts in the web client.

EG 3.2.4

When you highlight multiple items in the Item Status interface and choose "Manage Item Alerts", only the first selected item's alert is modified. When highlighting multiple items in the Copy Editor, selecting the "Item Alerts" button only allows you to add a new alert to all items; you cannot edit alerts for the items.
