Can we currently inline edit a related list in Lightning?

Can we inline edit fields from a related list in Lightning to avoid having to enter the record? - The same way inline editing is done with list views...

This is not an out of box functionality provided by salesforce. You will need a visualforce page to be able to do this. or an app exchange app

Hi Andrea,

There is not such functionality available to inline edit the Related list in Lightning.

If you want you can create the Lightning Component and add the same in Record Page.

Lightning Record Pages are Lightning apps that display an individual record. You can customize them by adding components. There are standard components. You can create custom components, which is the suggestion here. I sure wish somebody would build one that does this, and post the code.

There is still no out-of-box editable or add-in-place solution for Related Lists which is where they are most needed in my opinion. However, the popular product Conga Grid (https://appexchange.salesforce.com/appxListingDetail?listingId=a0N3000000B5ilaEAB) makes this possible with a one-click solution to convert your existing related lists into a Conga Grid version of your related lists. It creates a VF page that is a perfect rendition of all your Related Lists on a page layout that you can then drop on your page with one more click.  Their grids also offer conditional color, an Outlook style contextual reading pane for even power and tons more useful features.
