Can I mass change the status of documents in order to release them into production branch?
No, right now we do not support mass change of document statuses (only document attributes can be mass changed). A workaround is to flag every document status as "released". Therefore go to Solution Manager Launchpad → Process Management Configuration → Customize Document Handling → Define Values for Document Handling → Define Document Status Values. Here you can set the flag "released" for every status. After release you can set it back to previous handling.
