As I am teaching classes on the Commons, I often create a private group and ask students to join. When they request membership, I have to approve them one-by-one on the Manage > Requests menu. If there were a way, when multiple people had requested membership, to have checkboxes and select more than one person to approve at a time, it would ease things a bit.

Checkboxes + bulk actions don't fit well with the UI conventions of these sorts of lists on the Commons (and in BuddyPress in general). That's not to say they couldn't be added, but it would be a large project, and we might want to consider doing it across other similar sorts of "pending" lists: friendship requests, group invitations, etc.

What do you think about an 'Accept All' link instead? This is something we could tuck at the bottom of these lists without rebuilding the lists themselves. See screenshot for a very quick mockup. This doesn't allow the fine-grained controls of checkboxes, but I assume that in 95% of cases you want to accept/decline all anyway, and you can always handle exceptions manually.

I've just implemented this feature based on Boone's screenshot here -

I've added it for the 1.17 milestone, but we can roll it back into a 1.16.x maintenance release if we wanted to.
