How to Use Inline Editing

With Smart Manager’s inline editing feature, you can update any record of a post type directly from the dashboard. Be it adding a new product, updating order status, changing the sale price, modifying a booking, changing subscription status or any other.

You can edit multiple records one after the other and save all of them at once.

With Smart Manager, you can also use excel shortcuts for inline editing. Use the excel-like fill handle to copy the value from one record to multiple other records for a particular column. Or simply use Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V to copy & paste the values.

The above video will show you how to add a new product, update prices, modify stock status using search filters.

Steps to perform Inline edit

  • Select a post type from the Dashboard drop-down in the Navigation Bar.
  • Click on a cell and make an edit. Do it for as many fields as you want. For some fields, you will get an option from the drop-down to select and update the value. Example – Order status.
  • Click on ‘Save’ to save all values together.

You can apply search filters and then make an inline edit.

Another option of inline editing is adding one or more new records for any post type directly to the Smart Manager grid. Enter how many records of that post type you would like to create. Specify the number and click on Create. Then add the required values and click on Save to create the records.
