Inline editing is fast and easy. When you double-click a field or click the edit icon next to it, the entire record opens in edit mode. Reps can breeze through the record and update several fields at once. It’s more tedious in Salesforce Classic—you have to double-click each field to open it for editing.
Here are a few more advantages to inline editing in Lightning Experience.
- Reps can navigate within the page while editing a record. They can switch to the record’s chatter feed and back without losing changes.
- Reps are warned if they try to navigate to another page or browser tab without saving changes. No more redoing edits when they close the browser tab or browser by mistake.
- Error messages are more compact and easily accessible. Instead of appearing at the top of the form, error messages appear in a window at the bottom. Reps can click to hide the window when scrolling through a long record.
