Sorry if the question is worded badly. I was wondering why most sites require the user to edit their personal information in sections. For example an ecommerce site in 'my account' would have:
- User details ( name, email, password)
- Payment information with edit buttons under each section.
I was wondering if it is possible to instead of editing in sections just have ONE edit button at the bottom of account summary. This would unlock all text fields for the user to edit.
I've even seen examples of where edit icons are placed beside each text field. What is the logic behind this? Isn't that rather annoying having to click edit pencil behind each field.
