CREATE DEFAULT PUBLIC VIEWS
Keep in mind that if you have a list that contains thousands or even tens of thousands of items, it’s
best to create default Public views that limit the number of items displayed automatically. Doing so
will help the list come up more quickly for users navigating to that list. Alternatively, you can create
a Personal view as each user and teach them how to filter with it to better manage and manipulate
the data in the lists for themselves.
Inline Editing When enabled, Inline Editing adds an Edit button to each item record.
If you click it, any field that is editable becomes available to edit (for example, text fields
become text boxes). A little red X (cancel) button and a little floppy disk (save) button
become available to save or cancel the changes and get out of edit mode for that item. Note
that it works only for views that use the default style.
INLINE EDITING DOES CHANGE THINGS
Once inline editing is enabled, it becomes the default way to add new items to a list, changing the
Add New item (Announcement, for example) to just a plus sign, as shown here.
When the plus sign is clicked, a new item is started in the list view, with Save and Cancel buttons
and the fields active to accept data. If you don’t want that as the default data entry behavior, don’t
apply this setting to any views intended for data entry.
