SharePoint 2013 Quick Edit link disabled

Hi All,

Many times we see that the ‘Quick Edit’ link in the Ribbon is disabled even when we are the Site collection Administrators / Owners.

Following could be the reasons why it is being disabled.

  1. Custom Style applied on the view – Quick edit only works with a view set on default style. If you change style to any other than default, Quick edit option will be disabled for everyone.
  2. Quick Edit not enabled for the list in Advanced Settings within List Settings.
  3. Current view of the list has Group By enabled and applied on some field.
  4. Allow individual item checkbox not checked on Tabular view in the view.

It could be any one of these reasons, why Quick edit is showing up as disabled.
