One of my previous visitors asked for examples showing the usage of bulk actions. The lack of this functionality was one of the main issues of pods in version 1.x. Many of my clients were asking me for a solution to better manage hundreds (or even thousands) of records they had in their DBs.
Today I’ve written a short tutorial to show you how to leverage pods framework pre-save filter in order to automatically get address coordinates using Google geocoding functionalities.
