  5. Use Paste Codes to Select Items

When you use an Assign Only action, you can enter list item codes to select the items to assign. This enabled you to paste codes in bulk as a quick way to assign items.

Note: You can only use the Paste Codes feature if the list items have codes. 

You must have the Assign Only wizard open. This option is not available for Assign actions.
