Small project: Advanced django admin customizations for smoother workflow

I am seeking someone who has done something similar before.  If not, this is probably not for you, I do not wish to waste your time.  No agencies please, I want to work directly with a developer.

I need to let 5 people to quickly review, curate, and edit data (two linked models) using the django admin.

Platform is ubuntu, sqlite3 for dev, postgres for production.   I prefer jquery or react for frontend code.

I made the models, and have done basic admin customizations myself (list_display, search_fields, list_filter, etc).

But there are hundreds of records to review.  Opening each to edit will be a very slow workflow.  This team is used to collaborating on google sheets which is very fast, by comparison doing this is very slow.

So I want to make improvements to the django admin:

 - edit a few key fields right from the record list page (without having to open and save) using ajax

 - popping up more record information on hover, to avoid needing to open each record to find long text description

 - ensure all revisions are tracked (presumably with django-reversion), and ideally, can undo

 - handle locking so two users to not clobber each others changes (I was considering django-concurrency, but that has interaction with django-reversion).  No data loss is permissible.

- speed improvements if possible (load time etc)

- (websockets to show other people's admin editing actions are optional, maybe this is too advanced for this project, but if you have done this i would be glad to hear about it)


I considered building a whole new frontend application to do this, I am hoping its more efficient to adjust admin instead (but if you think this is the wrong way, I would be glad to hear you).
