I'm in the process of creating a large number of Airwaves "folders" that represent building on our campus. I'm then modifying the appropriate AP configs to place them into the right folder. One small problem ..... we've got 900 APs and at the moment, from the GUI, I can only see one way of moving an AP which is
Search for an AP
change AP folder ( default Top) to the new folder
click save and apply
click apply (?)
That's an awful lot of clicks for 1 AP when I've got 500+ to go.
Is there a better GUI way of doing this ( e.g..
search for a list of APs
click on check boxes for the APs you want
click on a "change folder" button

Why don't you search for access points by partial subnet (192.168.1.) and then use that to move them?

You can also search for those APs by their common name (building name) and then modify that entire list and moved those to the folder

If you can figure out all the APs that need to be moved into a folder, and there's a criteria that makes it easier to view them, then you can use 'bulk edit'.
1. Sort by whichever criteria puts the APs that go into a folder closest together (name, mac, IP, VisualRF floor plan aka 'Location')
2. Select the 'modify devices' wrench above the list table
3. Select the devices that you want to move
4. Below the table -> select group / folder and then 'move'
Img1: Modify Devices leads to checkboxes next to Devices
Img2: After selecting devices to move, move options are found below the list table
You can move devices between group and/or folder this way.
