Lightroom is spouse to also help with large quantity of photos... yes??!!.
I'm dealing with over 750 photos a day. Once I'm done with develop module I want to make sure all photos are similar (standard, how every you want to call it- temperature and tint for every scene). It is important for the equalization and making the product for the customer look better. With said so... What is the point of not having this quick options in library module. scrolling through photos and quick correcting them so they look alike. It is not only a lose of time going back an forth between library and develop module it doesn't always work either so I have to go back and forth few times sometimes. 
It is professional tool. Make it profesional... NOt only taht I should be able to control the increment of changes my self. All you need is 3 customizable buttons on each side of quick develop module in library.... Is it that difficult....

One more thing... Adobe Bridge sucks.... It is slow in building the previews and loading the images.... Why... Why it is that once I use the PS the Bridge wants to open itself.... ????

It is a constant problem since I use Adobe cloud....

Sorry Blazej, but I do not understand what problem you are having or what you are asking about.  Could you possibly restate what you are looking to do without the extra commentary?  That may make things clearer.

If all you are looking for is the ability to adjust temperature and tint in the Library module, that already exists.  Just click the small triangle to the right of the White Balance drop down to show or hide the adjustment buttons.

Well there's little reason to attempt to match the CCT Kelvin numbers to images sight unseen just to match numbers. The values define a large range of possible colors, cameras don't really measure this close to ideally, the same numbers can appear different in differing software packages because again, CCT 4560K is a range of possible colors of white. IF I wanted a group of images to visually match, I wouldn’t necessary believe the CCT numbers would be identical if they visually matched, and here's why:

That is correct Andrew.. I'm not looking for identical numbers. After all the recipient of JPG files at the end will have no idea what was the starting and ending values of color temp and probably doesn't even care. What I'm looking for is visual match. If I have 500 photos I need to be able fast and with a least most possible accuracy set them tone alike. I can do so by seeing them (let's say 20 at the time) and being able to go one noch up or down on certain ones.

I hope that clarifis my point. More over. I should be able to set my self the increments of those changes. Let's say for instance that left arrow will mean go 10% down on temp or tint and far left arrow will go 30% down form what I set in Develop module.

Thank you for PDF Andrew. :)

My apologies.... I acted like an idiot.... sorry about that. 
There are two issues remaining as an idea that would help. 1.  customize the workflow by letting the user set the increment of changes in quick develop mode in Library module 2. In PS I have no idea why is it that more often then not Cloud is popping the window asking me to install the Adobe Bridge. I don't want it until Adobe makes it run proper speed (let's just compare it to PhotoMechanic). The popping window stops my work and slows me down.

Once agin apologies for my ignorance in previous comment.
