How do I edit product details in bulk?  It is rather cumbersome to have to manually enter a supplier and volumne details for individual products one by one.  There must be an easier way!

Bulk edition is not part of the Odoo core. Yet you could use a well known mass edit module.

You could have it there https://github.com/JayVora-SerpentCS/MassEditing or better, integrate the OCA repository https://github.com/OCA/server-tools in your addon path and you'll have opportunity to install the module

An example of how it works there : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BH0o74A748&feature=youtu.be

Can you point me in the direction of a tutorial that explains how to install these server-tools?

Sure, are you aware of module deployment, what is your actual conf? The principle is fairly simple, on your server there is a specific place where Odoo looks into to find new modules those are local modules, this is call addon path. Once you found your con file, make a git clone of https://github.com/OCA/server-tools into this addon path, optionnaly change the option so that it will points into the new folder you cloned. Then restart your server and refresh your modules, you'll see plenty brand new modules. Hope it could help

I've followed the instructions a this link: http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2014/09/how-to-install-openerp-odoo-8-on-ubuntu-server-14-04-lts/ and I git cloned both massediting and the OCA repos into my addon path and then I stopped and started the server, and refreshed the modules list but I odn't see any new modules. Any advice?

When I use the web interface to manually install the modules I get this error for the mass editing module: Error while importing module 'mass_editing': "Module loading mass_editing failed: file /tmp/tmpkhzJCy/mass_editing/security/ir.model.access.csv could not be processed:\n Line 1 : No matching record found for external id 'model_mass_object' in field 'Object'" and this error when I attempt to install the OCA tools: Error while importing module 'server-tools': "'depends'"
