- Page layouts are used to control the layout and organization of buttons, fields, Visualforce, custom links, s-controls, and related lists on object record pages.
- They are helpful in organizing user interface pages by determining which fields, related lists, and custom links are required, read-only, and visible for the user.
- We can create many page layouts and apply them to different user groups, with the aim of creating a customized experience. For example, you could have a single account record like ACME Corp., but it displays different information depending on your user profile.
- Here, you can only apply the one-page layout to a single group of users per object, per record type. For example, if you have one record type based on the Accounts object, you can apply only one-page layout per profile.
