Overview of Mass Edit from List Views:
The Mass Edit from List Views is mainly used when users want to edit multiple records at the same time in List Views instead of without opening each record individually. Users can quickly and easily edit up to 200 records at once for Standard objects (Campaign, Lead, Account, Contact, Case, Opportunity, Contract, Product, Solution and Asset) from the List View or from the Related List with fields of your choice. Administrators can control the fields to be edited using Fields Set. To use this feature, admins need to install the Mass Edit from list Views package.
This feature is available in Professional, Essentials, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions of Salesforce Classic only.
So far when the users wanted to edit multiple records together, they had to open individual records and edit them or use the Data Loader for mass edits. It is very time consuming and an inefficient approach. Now, by using this Mass Edit from List Views feature, the users can easily edit the Mass record (up to 200) in List Views or related list with the minimal no of clicks.
