At the moment it is not possible to select more than one Released product and initiate the ECR as Engineering change request field on the action pane gets greyed out in such scenario.

Also there is no select option based on the query to add multiple items to already created ECR or ECO and the only way to achieve that is to add them one by one which can be very laborious exercise if the change applies to the range of products sharing the same feature that was the trigger for ECR/ECO.

It would be good if both these capabilities were added to the core application.

I agree with Michal. For an engineering company like ours, creation of variants of different lengths (approx 20) is a one time process when a new item master is created. Current process of creating them one by one is impractical and significantly time consuming in addition to the ECR and ECO functionality used as a trigger instead of the simple functionality of variant suggestions based on product dimensions employed by non-engineering product creation process. I hope this gets voted sufficiently so that can be investigated by Microsoft. Thanks.
