Bulk edit window should show how many items are selected

The bulk edit window in submittals / RFIs should show the user how many items they selected. I have received comments from a few of my users that they would like to see this to reconfirm how many items they in fact have selected for bulk editing.

    We've also heard it would be better if the grid cleared all selections after a bulk edit action. Currently the items stay selected even if you switch pages which isn't what most people expect. Is the root problem behind this suggestion is that users are accidentally editing more items than they meant to?

    I had the same issue as Sam Schwartz has commented on March 21, 2018. Suddenly my Mechanical items are assigned to my Flooring contractor. Oops! I think having a counter would provide reassurance or raise a red flag that you do/do not have the right amount selected before getting into these situations. 

    One thing that was pointed out to me is that by hitting F5, it refreshes the screen and resets any boxes that were selected. This is when using Chrome, perhaps it could be different for Internet Explorer.
