Alternatives to Custom Modules: Layout Rules

I FAR prefer this solution to Layouts. The UX is much cleaner and simpler for users to understand, in my experience.

Business use case:

  • Affluence tracks its Customers AND Vendors from the Contacts module
  • Rather than creating a new module, create a picklist in the Contacts module for Customer Type
  • And don’t even think about creating a new layout. Remember what you learned in the last lesson!

This is potentially better than custom module because of its simplicity.
