I have noticed that other users are invited to change the settings of list/library in the Advanced Settings to allow qick edit. My settings are activated for this feature and I have heard that function is not available for collapsed / grouped lists. Howerver, the Quick edit is also NOT available for an ordinary list (which is obviosly not already designed in datasheet view./ Eva
Sharepoint on premises 2016 - where is filtering option in the libraries? / Quick edit non working anymore for collapsed items
We have upgraded old Sharepoint to new 2016-update back on 24JUN20.
After the update I find that
1) SEARCHING BY METADATA is no longer available, since endexed filters like known from excel for example is no longer possible. I used to be able to filter by “contains” which is very useful. Now I can only search among known meta-data. If I knew exactly what to search for, I would not need to search in the first place.
2) EDIT DATASHEET VIEW view has been replaced with QUICK EDIT – however, it’s no longer possible to quick edit library’s metadata if view is “grouped by / collapsed”.
I have large contract libraries, patent and trademark and scientific articles libraries and I use the meta-data to search for document and they are all grouped by either:
- Patent family
- External party or
- Trademark family
Our support suggest that I move all this content to Sharepoint online, which filter options are not very good either – here I can filter – and see all fulfilling the filter criteria – but I can only select one. And if I have a 100 results, I have to read all lines…In order to pick the one
Thanks in advance for your help
Thanks in advance Eva
