I was very excited to test out the new capability that you can batch update cases but I'm not sure I'm testing it as intended. I was hoping to be able to use it to close multiple cases at once. Here is what's happeneing:
- Even though I can update the case statuses to a 'closed' status like "Resolved" it doesn't record an activity (with the date that the case was closed).
- If I add the case end date to the profile, a undefined notice pops up on the batch edit screen and I can only select today's date. Notice: Undefined index: formatType in CRM_Utils_Date::addDateMetadataToField() (line 1878 of /srv/buildkit/build/dmaster/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Utils/Date.php).
- If I do process the update with today's date, I don't see anywhere that the date is referenced (aside from being able to search by end date, I don't see a reference inside the case itself.)
I'm assuming I'm expecting too much (mixing capabilities)? It is after all technically updating the case status and date.
(While I am currently in Civi 5.5.3 - I verified this behavior is also on the dmaster demo site.)
