Custom Fields Layouts Screen

Last Updated: Jul 07, 2021

Custom Field Layouts are configured in Setup / Extensibility / Custom Fields / Layout

Overview

Layouts determine how custom fields are presented on system entities where custom fields are supported (Accounts, Packages, etc.). Some entities have a 'Custom Fields' tab where the layout will display the custom fields, other entities (e.g. Account Settings) append the custom fields from the layout to existing screen content.
