It's here! Thanks to over $16,000 contributed by 24 individuals and organizations, we are pleased to announce the official release of the Contact Layout Editor. The success of this Make-It-Happen campaign is a tribute to the power of the CiviCRM user community coming together to create something that benefits everyone.

With this extension you can take full control of the contact summary screen; rearranging and renaming blocks, as well as designing your own blocks by dragging & dropping fields. You can choose which layouts are shown to certain users, and design custom layouts for each contact type.

This extension opens up exciting new possibilities for developers to write new blocks for your layouts. At the time of this writing two extensions have taken advantage of this, and more are sure to come:
Following on this sucessful Make-It-Happen campaign, the CiviCRM Core Team is excited to launch our next crowd-funded initiative, Form Builder, a native drag-n-drop form designer for creating and editing all types of CiviCRM forms. Contribute now to support this important new development!
