Page Layout newbie questions.

1. Is it possible to customize a data object page, in other words if we create a dataobject1 with field1 and add a layout to it.

And then if i would like to add a new button to this layout in this page using page layout is it possible.


2. Also why would we need multiple page layouts for a page.


Please help.

Yes it is possible to add fields and custom/standard buttons to page layouts.

The multiple page layouts is used to show the data based on logged the user. For example there is a requirement to show all the available fields for "System Admin" profile and a few specific fields to show other profiles.


In this scenario will create multiple page layouts and assign the layouts to corresponding profiles.

Setup->Customize->Accounts->page layouts
