Admins can now edit assets in bulk from mass actions.
This feature is currently in the works and will be released sometime this week.
Our product team has finalized their homework on a web based batch editing solution. The developement begins this week. Stay tuned.

Yes, please allow some web-based batch editing. Using the Excel sheets is incredibly frustrating. My least favorite part is when you have about 20-something custom fields and you're just waiting to see how many rows fail due to some error or another with one of these fields. Especially after spending about 5 minutes attaching each field to a row on the spreadsheet. The ability to batch-change groups would be amazing.
This "Map Columns" frame is totally shot, by the way. It keeps snapping back all the way to the left (to the beginning of the columns list) after each edit. It's ridiculously time-consuming and also frustrating.
We added the ability to update existing assets a while back from Excel (Assets -> Import from Excel -> Update Existing). To get a dump of existing assets in CSV/Excel format, use All Active Assets report.
While not web-based, it should work until a web based solution is developed
