Result Selection: Note the checkboxes for each result type . Just as you can select multiple items on the dashboard and then interact with them in bulk, the same is true with search. You will have checkboxes that allow you to choose many items and access to the context nav to take action on those items. If you are selecting specific items for a control in a form you will be able to choose whatever number of items are expected by the control.
