A project I'm currently working requires the user to be allowed to edit only certain items on the page. So the way the page is arranged now, a few items can be edited, and a few items aren't editable. I'm debating whether the entry points for the edit should be at a page level (doesn't inform which items are editable and which aren't) or specifying which items are editable and putting a button next to each item.
The next part of my question is whether the entry points should lead to a new mass edit page or do inline editing. I'd prefer to do it inline if the entry point I go with is at item level. But due to a tech constraint currently, we can only allow for editing to happen one time. And that seems to be a risk with inline editing.
Would love your thoughts and comments! Thanks
