Magento 2 Product Grid Inline Editor extension allows editing product directly on the admin product grid. The admin can edit name, price, quantity and other attributes of one or multiple products without navigating to each product edit page. The module also works well even the product grid is being filtered or redirected from another page.
2. How Does It Work?
2.1. General configs
Please go to Store ⇒ Configuration ⇒ BSSCommerce ⇒ Product Grid Inline Editor.
In Enabled: choose Yes to enable the module, or No to disable it.
In Allow Editing Content of Input Types: multi-select product attribute input types including Text Field, Text Area, Date, Yes/No, Multiple Select, Dropdown, and Price to allow editing in the grid.
- If the Date input type is allowed editing, the default format in the grid for you to customize is mm/dd/yyyy.
- Quantity is considered as Text Field input type, so you can edit product quantity only when the Text Field is picked.
In Edit Multiple Rows: choose Yes to allow editing multiple rows (products) in the grid at once, or No to not allow.
In Edit Single Cell: choose Yes to only edit a cell is clicked at once, or No to take action on all editable fields in a row.
* Note: Edit Multiple Rows and Edit Single Cell function can’t work together. If you turn both configs to Yes, only Edit Single Cell function will be enabled. Although Edit Multiple Rows is Yes, you are not allowed to take action on multiple rows.
After selecting all configs, press Save Config button, and flush cache to start using this module.
2.2. Edit Attributes in the admin product grid
