I am developing a UI for a web app and don't know to decide between a popover and an accordion patterns. Basically what I have is a list of of sentences, some of them have an item which users should be able to edit. Editing these items is not the main purpose of the app, it is just a way for the user to edit some of the data.
Here's a mockup for the accordion pattern:
when 'Editable content' is clicked, it opens up and accordion and shows some editing controls, these might be a text field, a date picker and what not:
What do you think? should I go with an accordion or open a popover containing the editing controls?
Some notes about my users - this an enterprise solution for users which are extremely click conscious (they count the # of clicks for an action...)
