I have several custom fields that I need my client to be able to edit at anytime. For the sake of convenience, I'd like them to be able to edit these custom fields from the Quick Edit. This way they don't have to open a bunch of new pages to go into each post.

Is it possible to add editable custom fields to Quick Edit? Or am I out of luck?

I've answered here with a link to my Custom Bulk/Quick Edit WordPress plugin and the complete Gist code for a custom post type bulk and quick edit scenario for 3-custom fields. –  Michael Cannon Sep 27 '13 at 4:27

Have a look here. It's a pretty detailed tutorial but can be quite involved, don't forget to check the comments area.

An answer should be more than a plain link. –  kaiser Sep 29 '13 at 9:12

There is a WordPress plugin that gives you all of your custom fields in a single, customizable spreadsheet view. It is fully editable and includes actions such as adding a custom field to all pages, copying the cells to other spreadsheet softwares, etc. It can be found at http://www.williambixler.com/product/custom-fields-spreadsheet/.
