Customizing Page Layouts

You can customize the page layouts for record detail and edit pages. Page layouts control the layout and organization of buttons, fields, s-controls, Visualforce, custom links, and related lists. They also help determine which fields are visible, read only, and required. Page layouts can include s-controls and Visualforce pages that are rendered within a field section when the page displays.
