Inline Record Edit Mode
Each Table view includes the Inline Edit functionality, allowing you to edit a record directly in the table view list.
When the Inline Edit mode is enabled for the view, the
Edit buttons change their behavior to render edit controls right into the page. A user can either
Cancel the editing session or change the data and press
Save to update the record.
Regarding reference columns: when a reference column is created, a proxy lookup column is shown in a table view by default. So, the lookup refers to the Proxy Column. If the
Inline Editoption is activated in the View and when a user clicks on the
Editbutton in such a view, the proxy lookup column is replaced with a Record Picker.
The Inline Edit functionality is very handy for editing records in the Details View.
To enable inline editing functionality, you can edit a Table View and check the
Inline Edit checkbox in the
Allowed actions section.
However, there are some limitations: File attachments are not supported; View’s subtotals/grand totals and master record data that depend on edited values are not updated at the moment; Simultaneous editing conflicts are reported, but there is no other way to resolve them but to cancel the edit.
