What happened to Bulk Editor????

Today I searched for products, selected all, and prepared to change inventory for all these products, and that field option is gone!  

Anyone know why this change is made?  This is a feature I use daily to track and change inventory.

Hi @Ann_Sandler,

Ted here from Shopify, thanks for posting your query! 

The Bulk Editor should still be in the same section but it might need to be reflected. If you log into your Shopify account and then click Products are you able to reselect those products and select inventory as shown in thie below screenshot? This Bulk Editing guide will also help. 


If this option does not appear, could you describe the inventory field you are looking for and also share a screenshot of your admin with me? Just so I can try to replicate the error. As well, what device and browser are you using? If you still can't see the inventory field, could you try using a clearing the cache on your browser as mentioned here and try again? 

Please let me know how this goes! 

Many thanks, 

Ted | Social Care @ Shopify

Hello there.


I'm having the same problem that Ann_Sandler mentionned.  It started happening yesterday, apparently after Locations was "automatically enabled on all stores" (https://changelog.shopify.com/posts/improve-inventory-tracking-with-locations)


Now, the problem with Ted's answer is that the option we are looking for is not even in the screenshot that's in your answer.  (The Inventory section had a "Inventory Quantity" field which is what're missing and looking for.)


Obviously, I can't make a screenshot myself because it's no longer within the "bulk editor" for some reason, but you can see the field in the youtube video (2:48 - 2:54) from the This Bulk Editing guide you (Ted) mentionned in your post.  (Inventory Quantity 3trd from left)


This option might have been overlooked by the Shopify team/people etc.  but it's the single most important feature of the bulk editor in my daily routine.  


Please give it back to us.


Thanks and have a nice day.

I am having a problem with the pick up points sincde this latest update

Improve inventory tracking with locations

I now cannot state you can pick up from two other locations as well as my shop, UNLESS I put physical stock on each locations - this is not possible as I only have one item of most items.

Tried contacting Shopify and was told that this is how it is now. 

Anyone else having this problem
