Importing Activity Updates
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Hello. Asking about if a change to how the activities import function works. Hope this makes sense!

Issue:
We would like have the capability of updating multiple activities (100+) at once.
Use case:
Importing activities to all event invitees when the invite is sent. Exporting those activities and making updates to the status as donors respond. Importing those updates using the Activity ID that is assigned to each ID.

What's civi does now:
There is a way to update multiple activities at one time but this requires manually selecting the activities you wish to update individually.

Idea:
Can the activities import function like the contacts import with the ability to update?

This extension looks like it might be worth considering https://lab.civicrm.org/extensions/batchupdateactivitystatus - it gets past the 100 limit

No unit test but it's pretty cleanly written

@DStrine and @Eileenmcnaughton adding to this task. I've been working with @jkim_wikimedia to get her event activities updated for future events and the batch updating activities is becoming a bit of a headache for her since she needs to update groups of contacts of 5000 and over and Civi times out frequently. Is there any way around it?
