Layout customization controls how the outlook of your dashboard appears when your application is accessed from different devices. This is done by manipulating margin sizes, choosing appropriate layouts, and more.

The Creator platform provides progressive web applications that can be accessed on different interfaces.

This UI and UX consistency allows the end-users gain full usage of the features despite the orientation or screen size of different devices.
