Selecting multiple rows

Hi - I need to delete a couple thousand rows but I’m having a hard time selecting more than a couple hundred at a time. Is there a shortcut to select all rows in a view or to use CMD + SHIFT + DOWN or something similar? When using the mouse to select and drag the box down, it gets hung up after a couple hundred cells highlighted.

Hi @mlee, there isn’t any option to select all rows in a table/view. I’d recommend using API to delete so many rows for now.

Stumbled upon this situation too. I need to clear some tables with a large amount of data. Using an API is an option, but it is not very friendly for regular users.

So voting for the “select all rows” option. :grinning:

We understand this @nickneustroev! I’ve added the “select all rows” option to the list of requests, and we will discuss this with the team.

We plan to work on a bunch of UI/UX improvements in the nearest months, so your feedback will be addressed, be sure :raised_hands:


Hello @mlee and @nickneustroev! Currently, it’s possible to select a maximum of 200 rows due to the set limitations. We understand the importance of the feature you mentioned and will brainstorm on how to implement it.

Has there been any update on this? We need to select thousands of rows at once

Hey @Emily, no updates as for now, but I’ll re-open this question in the nearest call where we discuss feature prioritization :ok_hand:

Happy this has been added in last week’s update version 1.16 :grin:
