Let users immediately edit all item fields after opening a specific item, instead of requiring them to click , , to make changes
For this post, I will use the browser extension as an example, but keep in mind that this feature request also applies to the desktop application and the mobile application.
In the current version of the browser extension, when a user opens it and clicks “” next to one of their logins, the section opens:
Here, the user can select the text in each field, but when they try to replace the selected text with something else, they can’t: they are required to click and open a similar-looking section which now lets them actually edit the fields.
In my opinion, this additional step is annoying for existing users and confusing for new users: when I first started using the extension, I couldn’t figure out why what I was typing wasn’t being shown on the screen, until I realized I had to click the button in the top right corner of the pop-up to edit what I was already seeing. This is also true for the desktop app and the mobile app.
This is my suggestion for how the improved section on the browser extension could look like (every field you see here is immediately editable):
As @RogerDodger said in his great reply: this is not only faster to use, but it’s also consistent with how the web vault works. When a user clicks on an item in the Web Vault, they are immediately in edit mode for that item. This change would also create more consistency across all the app and web interfaces.
