QB Desktop for Accountants Premier 2010 upgrading to 2021

I am upgrading my QB Accountant Desktop premier from 2010 to 2021.  Here are the steps I have to go through for the upgrade: 1) Backup each company file from QB 2010 to a local drive; 2) Restore each backup file to QB 2021 one by one.  Question:  Is there a way to do a bulk upgrade instead of one company file at a time?  I have quite a bit of clients.  Converting one by one is not very efficient, and does not seem to make sense.  I tried to chat with Customer Support, and no better solution offered.  Can someone help?  Thanks.

Let me explain how conversion works, Sumluck.
 

I know how convenient it is to upgrade them all at once. You're unable to do it, though. You'll have to convert each file one at a time. 

 

For more information, you can refer to this article: Upgrade your company files after switching to a new version of QuickBooks Desktop.

Thank you for your reply.  You confirmed that the upgrade process is manual unfortunately.  I really hope QB's product engineering team will work on a solution for this.  I can't imagine updating each client company file one at a time every time I do a software upgrade.
