Bulk update Collection Relations

I’ve just moved across from Notion. Part of the import was a huge Database of items, all of which had a number of Properties. This is now a Collection with Relations - great! However, the Relations haven’t imported as actual options - meaning I have to manually update each Relation. If I don’t do this, I can’t sort/filter/relate etc.

Is there a way to do this in bulk? As I have hundreds of Relations to update :face_with_spiral_eyes:

Example: the text is there, but it’s not a proper Relation, just text:

EDIT: I’ve just realised it might be confusing - even if I remove/X Physical, there are still no options in the dropdown.

Can you share some screenshots perhaps?

The problem is I’m not sure exactly what to share :sweat_smile:

Here’s an extract of a Collection:

Solar is imported from Notion, whereas Sustainability I created in AnyType:

If I try to filter by Solar, it doesn’t show/there is no option:

If I delete Type Physical, there are no options - I’d have to recreate it in AnyType (and do the same manually for every Object):

To quickly answer your question, there is no way to add relations in bulk. Check Bulk Editing of Objects .

And looking at all of the examples you’ve showed me now, it seems like this is a bug. These should definitely show up as options in relations after the import.
Can you please write a bug report?
