Add "Creator" to bulk edit options for Ideas

Problem: We are using Aha to bring in several disparate requirement systems into one, so we are loading the ideas from those repositories into Aha.  Many times the creator is not a user in Aha already or is not expecting to become a user in Aha (i.e. not a product manager or will not be given access due to their role), so it's easier to load all items using 1 user....normally the person who has done the import first and will be expected to be in charge of every import thereafter).  Once loaded into Aha, then we change the creator manually after the fact. I was shocked to find that Creator seemed to be the only attribute that was not able to be bulk edited.  Since we are combining 8+ repositories, the ability to add Creator to the bulk edit items like Assigned To, Tags, Visibility, Status, etc. would be very beneficial to any company pulling in feature requests or any other ideas into Aha.

Request: to add Creator to the bulk edit items in Ideas like Assigned To, Tags, Visibility, Status, etc.

    I just accidentally imported 200 records with the wrong email address and only noticed after votes have started coming in.  I would have loved a way to bulk edit them.  Thanks for the consideration.
