  2. Once you are in the new search portal, there are two ways you can select multiple items:
    1. One way is to click on the checkbox that appears in each item of the search result list. 
    2. The other way is to select the checkbox that appears above the entire search results list; this allows you to select all the items on the page. You can load more results to the page to allow the selection of up to 50 records or you can choose to select the top 50 results automatically.
