References mass modification

Florian R. shared this question 12 months ago

Dear Citavi,

Citavi is great, and migration from another reference management software has been done easily.

I would like to modify in mass some fields that are not Category or Keywords, for example I would like to clear all Notes or ISBN for several references at once. I searched and tried to find how, but it does not seem to be possible.

Is there an easy way to do that ?

Thanks in advance for tour response.

Kind regards

We are glad that you like Citavi.

The possibility to make changes to multiple references at the same time (batch modify) is unfortunately not available for all fields.

When you copy or move references to a new/another project, you might select which additional data you want to copy or move, like "Notes".

But it is not possible to clear selected fields within one project automatically.

Kind regards,



Dear Anne,

Thank you for your quick reply.

Thus it should be a great feature to implement on Citavi regarding competitor's solutions.

All without exception accept mass modifications (by value, replace, clear, etc.) of any field values.

Kind regards,



Dear Florian,

Thank you for pointing this out. We have added this feature to our internal wish-list for our developers.

Best regards,
