Can a community user do mass edits from a list view?

  • Can you say what you mean by mass edit? Do you mean a Visualforce page that performs some action on records from a list view or do you mean inline editing in a list view? – greenstork Oct 25 '13 at 17:32
  • i mean editing more than 2 records,by selecting 2 and doing inline editing from list view.so that changes are applied to both. – sfdc99999 Oct 27 '13 at 11:25

Communities users have restricted permissions compared to a standard internal user but there is nothing prevent them from doing edits, either inline in the list view or via some Visualforce page acting on a list of sObjects that come from a list view, as long as that user has permission to edit that object.

All custom objects (not tied by master-detail to a standard object) can be made editable by Communities users, for example, and certain standard objects can be made editable as well. For a good overview of object CRUD permission by Salesforce license, check out this matrix from Wes Nolte at tquila:


  • Mass edits from list view is a permission enabled in profiles.and community users(with partner community licensed profiles) doesnt have this option..so i am not sure how it possible,to select more than 2 items from a list view and edit it in one go.. – sfdc99999 Oct 27 '13 at 11:23
  • I do not see that option, you are right. – greenstork Oct 27 '13 at 17:14
