Views Bulk Operations (VBO) is one of those modules whose name and Drupal.org description doesn't indicate how useful it is.

Here's the short version of what VBO does it:

  • Allows you quickly select all the items displayed in a View.
  • Allows you to perform advanced operations on all the items you selected.

So, VBO enables you to greatly speed up your site administration, particularly if you have a lot of data:

  • Want to quickly delete 1000's of user or comments? VBO can do that.
  • Want to update 100's of content items at once? VBO can do that.

Let Robert Ring introduce you to VBO in this video:

This video is part of our Better Drupal Administration class, which is full of useful tips like this.
