Quick Edit: fixed row height, row selection, and visual updates in SharePoint lists and document libraries

From Microsoft Corporation

MC216574, Stay Informed, Published date: Jun 17, 2020

In SharePoint document libraries and lists, we are releasing three new features in the Quick Edit experience.

  1. Fixed row height, Roadmap ID 64867
  2. Row selection, Roadmap ID 64868
  3. Visual updates, Roadmap ID 64871

When this will happen

  • These three features will roll out to Targeted Release customers from the end of June through mid-July.
  • These feature will roll to Standard Release customers from mid-July to mid-September.

How this will affect your organization

  1. Fixed row height
    When in Quick Edit, you will see a new layout option “Fixed Height” within the view drop-down menu. This layout will adjust the height of all rows in the list or library to the same height to optimize the vertical spacing.
  2. Row Selection
    When in Quick Edit, people will see an updated way for selecting single or multiple items in a list or files in a library. This selection update supports existing copy/paste and drag-to-fill, applicable to multiple rows when using shift+selection. This, too, improves navigating and interacting with a list or library via keyboard key strokes.
  3. Visual updates
    When in Quick Edit, we are introducing a number of new and refined user interface updates. You’ll see new grid lines, an improved on-hover experience when using your mouse around the grid, themed color bars on the side of list items – including error messaging, a “Create New Item” button at the bottom of quick edit for creating new items inline, and updated column header drop-downs.

What you need to do to prepare

You might consider updating your end user documentation and training.
