The Bulk Update tool allows you to change details for many contacts at once. You can't update specific details, like email addresses and mobile phone numbers. Rather, it is used to update a more general property, like email status or a company's name.

To start a bulk update, click Contacts > Bulk Update, then choose between updating email or SMS contacts using the tabs on the input field.
Next, paste the email addresses (or mobile numbers) of the contacts you want to update into the input field. Make sure the addresses are separated with commas.
