A feature that is less well known is the Inline Grid Editing. This function, released in the Fall 2016 update (Autumn for us Brits) encourages users to quickly update records without the need to open an excel file.

By simply clicking into your selected field, you can type in your data and update the field value directly from the view.

Users are also welcome to make multiple changes by ‘tabbing’ to the next field in that row.

The padlock offers a protected field function which stops any amendments, inline.

This great tool must be enabled by a System Admin and can be enabled for certain entities only to suit.
