Customizing Record's Detail Page

Page-level customization refers to customizing a record's details page and the layouts related to it. This includes organizing related items on a page, customizing related lists, search layout and the list views.

Organize Page Details

The option to Organize Page details, is available in each module and helps to change the order of the related list views. Additionally, you can show or hide some of the related lists as per your organization's requirement using this feature.

When record from one module is related to a record in another module, the associated records are displayed in the related list of the parent module. For example, if Zylker's account has 4 contacts associated with it, the contacts details will be displayed in the account's related list.
