When I create a new PROJECTsite using the standard Projectsite template, the Tasks webpart on the homepage automatically opens in Quickedit mode.

From my research I understood that a call is made to inplview.aspx which also adds some items to the querystring:


On the other hand, which I create a new TEAMsite using the standard Teamsite template, add a Tasks lists and add a Tasks webpart on the homepage it does NOT automatically open in Quickedit mode (i.e. it is not using inplview.aspx)

I would prefer that the Tasks webpart in the Projectsite does NOT automatically open in Quickedit mode. How could I make this happen?

From what I see, you have two options:

  1. Edit the page AllItems.aspx >> Edit the Tasks Webpart >> Activate Server Render in the Miscellaneous section. When you do that you lose your toolbar and the ECB, though.
  2. Use the script below to exit the Quickedit mode automatically.

ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(function () {
  setTimeout(function () {
  }, 0);
}, "spgantt.js");

I'm not really sure what causes the task list's AllItems-view to open in Quickedit mode by default. So, maybe there's a simpler way to achieve what you want.

  • Thanks, I've tested both solutions and they do work fine. I like the javascript solution best, although the edit mode is still noticably visible before being closed by the script. Before accepting this as the answer, I'll wait for a bit too see if an even better solution and possible an explanation comes up. Oct 1, 2016 at 20:50
