D365 Quick Tip: Bulk Clear field values

A very handy approach for admins and users of Dynamics 365 who want to bulk clean up field values – And just selecting them in Bulk Editing them as shown below doesn’t help!!

So here’s the scenario – You want to clear the selected records for their Credit Score field

Because primarily, you can commonly put a value in a field using Bulk Edit, but not clear the value.

 

Workaround

What you can do instead, create a quick and simple workflow to clear the field.

  1. Create an On-Demand workflow on Contact entity with an Update step for Contact
    workflowBody
  2. In the Update step, point to the field and then select the Operator on the right hand side to select Clear
    operator
  3. Make sure the Clear appears on the field you want to Bulk Update
    clearField
  4. Once done, save and Activate the workflow. Run on the selected records you want to clear at once
    runWorkflow
  5. The values will now be cleared for these records
    cleared

Hope this helps!
