"Check All" in the merge window

Collaboration
On our radar


When there are many differences and I should keep most of the original version, I have a very time-consuming job of ticking most checkboxes on the left side of the merge window (see screenshot below).


Please add a "Check All" option to both sides.

Awesome Idea!

Not to mention an "Uncheck all". Often I want to merge only one little thing, and I have to be very careful not to leave a checkmark somewhere.

Just like the new (P10) "Refresh All" for references...

Check/uncheck should be the same option, but yes would be a good one

Usage: I have this huge application and I just need to merge 2 static entities so I can publish, but I have to check 100+ entities to keep the old code.  They my computer crashes in between and I have to recheck again to merge.  Very time consuming.  A select all would help immensely.

Merged this idea with 'Compare and Merge - Buttons to Check All or Uncheck All' (created on 28 May 2018 15:10:06 by Fabio Barboza)

Hello,


Sometimes we have a need to go back to a version totaly of the system.


When we compare the versions we have to mark each box individually.


My suggestion is to create 2 buttons one to check all and uncheck all.

Hi!

In such case, would it be possible to use "Module management"-button(gear icon) and then go to previous version line and press "publish"-button?

Hi @Esa Saarinen.

 I understand, but this will be a sort of selection in Service Studio.

You do not need to access the Service Center.

Merged this idea with '[ServiceStudio] - Merge - Pick all elements' (created on 20 Sep 2017 11:38:32 by Daniel Martins)


Before Development Environment 10 (ServiceStudio) version 10, we would have an option to pick all

This print screen is still available at the Documentation:

https://www.outsystems.com/help/ServiceStudio/9.1/index.htm#t=Working_in_Teams%2FCompare_and_Merge.htm 

Now with version 10:


Is not possible to pick all the elements inside a webflow or inside a static entity merge, some times if there are many changes involved you would need pick each element individually (and it can be hundreds).


Please get this functionality back to service studio!

Indeed. Iirc though, this has already been proposed as an Idea, though I might be wrong.

Tiago Neves mentioned this before in the forums:

Top level selection is also missing.

You're right - pick all the elements is really annoying

Not only annoying, it can be errorneous, as it might be easy to miss some of the boxes

On another forums discussion, Lúcio Ferrão made a comment that tbh, looking back, I don't quite get it:

"When doing 3 way merge, selecting all the children was not the correct default as it would lead to lost code" - seems like that was behind the decision of not having All/Children elements option.
