Before updating to version 12.1 when opening an asset record to the asset details or asset basics screen you were automatically in edit mode if you had edit rights. Now you have to click an edit button to put the record into an editable mode. This isn't a problem if you use it infrequently, but if you work with assets all day or are doing inventory on thousands of assets, it is a problem. Is there a way to revert to the old functionality for that feature?
Did you every get a resolution to this? I am running into the same thing.
