In the Question Bank, it would be nice to be able to select some (or all) of the questions and bulk add new tags or remove existing ones.
It sure would be nice!
I've been searching all over, is there any development regarding this issue?
I like Moodle, but it seems VERY clunky in its ways. Most things seem to be an oversight, such as, when you duplicate a quiz, it doesn't duplicate the questions, so when you edit the new quiz you edit the old one!!! (Learnt the hard way).
Bulk deleting and tagging should be a given. Also the quiz backup feature doesn't work.
What similar software are you comparing it with?
In my view the Moodle quiz engine is the most powerful available anywhere free or paid for with more third party tools than any other product. Having said that as I commented in this thread a year ago, bulk tag handling would be a nice feature.
The good news is that the upcoming major release (Version 4.0 available around the end of the year) may well make it possible to create new types of quiz plugins which I suspect would include the possibility of bulk tag handling. As a full time Moodle developer specialising in the quiz, I would like to work on such a thing, but there are so many desirable features and only so much time/money.

And the question versioning feature might address you question about question update/duplication.
