#Office365Challenge – Yesterday I spoke about Quick Edit in Lists and Libraries. Even though this is a pretty cool feature, it could also be quite dangerous. In some cases you might want to disable this function. Here’s the how.

Day: 17 of 365, 348 left
Tools: SharePoint Online; SharePoint 2013
Description: How to Disable Quick Edit in SharePoint

Just as Quick Edit allows for the bulk edit of meta data – it also allows for bulk mistakes – if you understand what I mean….

To disable this feature, Go to the Library Tab (1), Library Settings (2), Advanced Settings (3). Under Quick Edit you’ll find “Allow items in this document library to be edited using Quick Edit?” (4), change this to “No”.


That should make you sleep better at night.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but to the overall Microsoft Office Suite as well as where applicable, SharePoint.
