What is Edit Mode?

Here at MEX, we are continuously looking at ways to improve our software to make your life easier, which has encouraged us to develop one of the most advanced and powerful features ever - Edit Mode.

Edit Mode is a complete admin control center which puts all of your settings under one roof. We have blended the administration of MEX with its day-to-day usage by giving you the freedom to make MEX look and behave exactly the way you want it to.

Edit Mode allows you to work through the MEX system to apply security and mandatory settings, change field names and add custom fields with ease, without jumping between the original setup forms.

Ease of use is an integral element for MEX where Edit Mode enhances our philosophy to provide a user-friendly and simple system. This tool makes MEX even easier to implement, simplifies the setup and strengthens the backbone of the system - security!
