Inline Editing for Related Lists



We are creating a simple App, there are no Visualforce pages involved in the App. In the Salesforce standard UI how do I enable Inline Editing for Related List.

I have enable Inline Edit option from Setup-Customize-User Interface, but that does not allow me to make inline edit for Related lists. The field types that are to be editted or Text and Picklist.

Any help on this would be great.

Feature for Inline editing is not avilable in salesforce with related list.


There are a couple AppExchange apps that may offer what you're looking for --


Mass Update And Mass Edit From List View

Mass Edit + Mass Update + Mass Delete


This can be done with a isual force page

This functionality is not provided out of box by salesforce. Need to code  using visualforce page


Another AppExchange app to add: GridBuddy


The setup is easy and configurable (so you don't have to mess with code for every change you want to do).   To set it up as a related list inside a record detail page, see


In both the Free and paid versions, you can see/inline edit/inline create/delete up to 2 levels of related children (so an Account with related Oppties and related Tasks).


The paid version also includes user quick filtering, mass updating and export.
