    Field Description
    List edit type Controls the ability of a user to edit values directly in individual cells in a list. The options are:
    • Save immediately (cell edit mode): enables cell editing. The entire row is saved when the user enters a new value.
    • Save data by rows: enables cell editing. The row is saved only when the user navigates away from the row or clicks the Save icon (Save icon). This mode allows the user to modify multiple values before saving a record.
    • Disable list editing: prevents users from editing cells in the list.

    This field is available for standard lists only.
