One of the best functionalities in SharePoint document Libraries; the Quick Edit-tool is not there in modern document libraries. Why?

 

Please bring it back ASAP!

Please say it isn't so....

Agree @Kelli Gordon!!

You could create a DataSheet view and use that. Not quite the same, but similar.

Yes @David Broussard, I could, but that just brings me to "classical" version. What when that is no longer available? And, it is a bit backwards crossing the stream to pick up water.... :) The whole point about "Quick Edit" is what the name says... ;)

I have just reviewed that I have the Quick Edit option on a modern document library too

Thanks for your feedback @Juan Carlos González Martín! I have checked both Team sites and Communication sites in Office 365 document libraries in several tenants and still I can't find it (and it did show in the grey bar above the documents in a document library previously).

 

Anyone; Bearing in mind that the error might be between the screen and the chair. How do I find the Quick Edit functionality for modern document Libraries?

Highlighted
Just checked my tenant and some doc libraries give me the Quick Edit, others don't. Trying to determine what the difference between the libraries are! If i find out i will post.

Thanks @Tanya Denton, yes, a colleague of mine experiences the same, eg. that it doesn't show in one tenant, but at a customer's tenant it shows...

Highlighted
This is strange. I am using just our tenant, and in the library that i opened where the Quick Edit didnt show, if i changed to another view, it showed! Now to check the difference between the views!
Highlighted
I have no idea why. But .... In the view that did NOT show Quick Edit i had the the following columns in the view Type Name Modified Modified By If i then added one more column to the view 'Quick Edit' then appeared. I only added [App Created By] column, which is a non-editable field, so have no idea why this then made Quick Edit appear! I think one to report?
Highlighted

Yeah, I checked Advanced Settings, there is an option there to allow Quick Edit, and "Yes" is chosen...still it doesn't show above the documents in the view...?

Yes! That's it! I added too another column, and now it shows....!

Conclusion might be that there needs to be a minimum of 4 columns for the Quick Edit to show?

Highlighted
Glad it is back for you, but still why the sudden change. Probably best to report it as it maybe an unintentional change.
Highlighted

I agree @Tanya Denton, as you won't always need 4 columns for an all documents editing. At least it should be available in the tiny arrow menu dropdown next to the other commands in the grey field.

Where can we report it?

Highlighted
Interesting finding...I have just created a fresh document library in one of my sites and Quick Edit was not there...it appeared as soon as I added a single editable column what makes sense in my opinion...in my case, I just added the Title Column...so I would say that Quick Edit works as expected
Highlighted
Having an editable column is what I originally thought it needed, but my library already had the standard [Name] field, which is an editable field, and Quick Edit didn't show. But when i added another column {App Created By] which is a non-editable field, the Quick Edit appeared. Strange..

User Voice, or put in a trouble ticket via the O365 Tenant Admin.

It seems that you need four columns in the view to enable Quick Edit. I added a default column and QE appeared. I then removed that column from the view and it went away.

Yeah...I agree I didn't "like" that solution, just a workaround.

That it seems one needs four columns in the view for it to appear is really odd. Definitely a bug

Yes, kind of @Juan Carlos González Martín and I am glad it was such an easy solution, got a bit spooked there, as this functionality is just magic! :D However, as I mentioned above, you don't always have 4 columns in a view for quick editing...but now we know, and if other users search, they will find this, so not the end of the world. Still, it should be available in the menu somehow...

It is strange, and have just tried a view with just the [Name] field in and it Quick Edit is there!

Yes @Tanya Denton, looks like it....I created a brand new document Library, no Quick Edit menu. Edited the all document viewby removing two columns from view, then the Quick Edit menu shows....so 1st conclusion proven wrong, the 2nd conclusion seems to be that if a view is edited the first time, then the Quick Edit shows....strange....

 

And, yesteday when I discovered the missing Quick Edit, I had made new views...at least I believe so...

Hi @David Broussard, I did already register it on the Voice page on January 2nd; https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/32794792-where-is...

 

Updated it with a link to this discussion.

Thanks a bunch @David Broussard! :D

The thing here is that you don't need those 4 columns, simply add the standard Title column to your view and Quick Edit will appear

It seems like it.. One of my older SharePoint Sites still has the Quick Edit button within a Document Library, a newer (demo) tenant hasn't.

Thank for the useful comments in this thread. I also had 4 editable columns already, but my view was grouped. After disabling the groupings the Quick Edit button appeared.

Not sure if you figured this one out or if my case is aplicable to your situation. However, I found that in my libraries if I go to the Edit View page and under the section "Style-->View Style" set any other value than "Default" then the Quick Edit link will disappear. Changing back to default brings back the Quick Edit.

@Erik Wettergren Thanks for getting back. I figured out I had to ungroup the rows to get quick edit back again.

Highlighted

@Tanya Denton Did you guys figure out why by chance this is happening? I'm seeing it too, but I have over 8 fields, I have editable fields, I have app created by, I have title linked, and nothing! No quick edit! Thanks, Jen

Did you try to go to "Edit Current View" and scroll down to the section "Style-->View Style" and make sure it is set to "Default" ?

@Merethe Stave ; I just encountered the same issue after creating a new Documents site! However, the [Quick edit] button became available after a new view was saved using the "datasheet" style. Not sure if that's the solution, but seems to be a good workaround for now!

One of the best functionalities in SharePoint document Libraries; the Quick Edit-tool is not there in modern document libraries. Why?

 

Please bring it back ASAP!

The modern list / document library WebPart does not provide the same actions you have when working in a list / document library

I got the same problem on the site pages. Seems like its only available on the default "All pages" view

Try edit view > tabular view > allow individual item checkboxes @Merethe Stave

This worked for me...thanks!! @D_W-1

You need to have editable columns to have quick edit option visible. Several things can make quick edit option hidden like grouping and issues with view etc. Hope it is solved now. Mine got solved when I removed grouping by metadata in library settings that I had put in.@Merethe Stave
