I am searching for use cases that provides the user to edit the name of an asset in line, when is part of a breadcrumb.

Is that case exist somewhere? (Saas) please mention the brand so i can have a look. Thanks!

The problem I see with your idea is how to distinguish between clicking on the breadcrumb item to navigate and how to click on it to edit.

You could split the name into a separate label or add an edit pencil icon/button to allow editing the name.

UI proposal

  • Thanks for the answer! But what if the editable part is not clickable- because it is the last part of the breadcrumbs , and you are actually in this page? Jun 26, 2022 at 21:10
  • This sounds confusing to me. You have elements that look 100% alike, but clicking on them does different things. I would also be afraid that users would not find the edit functionality. Safest bet is to test with your users.

Google Drive does that, but only for the last (current) folder. There's a caret that brings a "Rename" option, which is made on a modal.
