Custom lists - editing form layout

Recommended Posts

Editing form for custom lists is quite confusing since it's not visible by default and it uses a lot of space when expanded.

Current layout:

Suggested compact variation:

No offense, but what's exactly the problem about that it uses a lot of space when expanded? :huh:

The whole layout is redundant. The text string under the title duplicates the fields in the form (obviously to compensate its invisibility by default), and the form does not provide many options to require so much additional space. Also, the need to expand and collapse it every time is very annoying. Therefore I think the form and the string may be easily combined like I showed in the sketch. The same applies to other types of lists.

And by the way, what are the advantages of the current design? :unsure:

Hmm, I see.

Well, it takes up even less space (when not editing) than the 'always visible' option. And, it's less prone to accidentally changing the details (or deleting), although I suppose the chances of that happening are extremely slim since you'd have to change it and press save.
