Subject: Custom Bulk Functions With Prompt
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 21:31:27 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <m25z3wwayo.fsf@Kevins-MBP.home.lan> (raw)

I'd like to setup a custom bulk function using
`org-agenda-bulk-custom-functions', however I'd like to receive one
prompt when I select the action and then have the action performed on
every entry without being prompted again.

For example the bulk tag function lets the user specify a tag once, then
applies that to every entry.  As far as I can tell from looking through
the source code, there's no way to replicate this via a custom function.

Is there something I'm missing that would allow me to do this?  If not,
any suggestions on how support for it could be implemented?  I'd be
happy to submit a patch but I'm not sure of the best way to approach it.
