Dependent page layouts - data rules to show, hide, or make fields/sections req'd

Globalization & Custom Schema

There are times when it would be ideal to show different fields or sections on a page based on field data. For example, if a field for "software interest" is selected on a lead page, it would be nice if a section and/or fields related to capturing more information on "Software" is displayed. If the field is not selected, then this section and/or fields remain hidden. Allowing greater customization on the page level based on data rules would make for more manageable and targeted page layouts.

    Hi, for those who weren't able to join us this week at Dreamforce, we announced a new series that aims to provide transparency into what's happening with our top ideas. We will be working our way through the top 25 for a detailed look at their status, starting with the work happening around dependent page layouts. 

    More information can be found here:

    Overall, our goal as we reimagine the IdeaExchange is to rebuild trust with our community, and that starts with honesty and transparency. I welcome feedback on how we improve that dialogue, and of course how we can design an experience that better meets your needs. Find me here, or on Twitter [@jennyst0].
