What happens when I associate a new layout?

View layout activity

Layout activity fetches all the latest updates in the layout. This is nothing but an 'Activity Stream' of your layout. You can keep a track of all the activities carried on a particular layout, anytime.

Available fields in a layout

 You can view the 'Available Fields' next to the Custom Layouts
Available fields fetches the used fields vs the available fields across the layouts. (For example: Single-Line Text shows 2/50 , then you have a total of 50 available fields from which you have used only 2 fields.)
Based on the used vs available fields, you can add new fields to your layouts. If the maximum limit is reached, then that particular field will be greyed out inside the layouts.
