You can use the Table view in the Leads, Contacts, and Deals pages to directly edit the data for those elements. For example, instead of editing a lead’s data by first accessing their profile page (see Editing lead and contact profile information), you can instead edit the data directly in the Table view.
The editable fields in the Table view display the pencil icon when your cursor hovers over a field. Click the pencil icon to edit the data.
You can select from predefined edit options (as in the Status options shown above) or you can enter data as you would in the Profile page (for example, entering the company name followed by the Enter key).
