Hey Lynne,

Thanks for reaching out to the Community! Unfortunately, if you're using the mobile site, Grid Edit is not avialable. Here is a help-topic that outlines what features you can use on the mobile site:

To edit a field in Grid Edit on Mobile, you need to "double-tap" the cell. There are cases where your device won't register the tap, or, more commonly, it will think that you're tapping two separate cells. I have had some success in the past using a stylus in Grid Edit to decrease the surface area of the tap, but it's not a sure-file solution.



If you have any other questions, please let me know!

I was hoping that by now, a grid edit report would work smoothly on our iPads. One tap...enter info...done. It doesn't work like that.  As a result, the owner of the company is considering using a different application than Quickbase! I love QBase! Please tell me that there is something in the works to improve the grid edit report's performance on an iPad. Thank you
