BaseHead v2020.5 Batch Renamer Feature

 

The first release of BaseHead for 2020 introduces a whole range of new features, improved color scheme, bug fixes, performance enhancements and ongoing UX improvements.  One particular new feature that was requested by many users suggestions is now now available to check out is the new Batch Renamer feature which replaces the previous ‘Offline Renamer’.  

 

 In previous versions of BaseHead, batch renaming of files and database details was done with the ‘Offline Renamer’ and allowed simple batch updates of a single field using a single source of information which would often require several processes to update information. The new 2020.5 version of BaseHead now introduces a new powerful rules based Batch Renamer instead allowing much more flexibility in how data is updated and is available to all BaseHead Ultra users now in version 2020.5 (or higher)

As always… make sure you Support Plan is active for your license before you update to it.  😉

 

Some of the new features and functions:

  • Separate Transfer/Batch processing panels
  • Ultra powerful and flexible Rules Based batch renaming
  • Rules can insert database fields, free text or sequential numbering
