Last updated: 2023-06-08

Works with CiviCRM 5.57 or higher.

  • Once installed, navigate to Administer -> Customize Data and Screens -> Contact Summary Layouts to open the editor.
  • Create one or more layouts, dragging the desired blocks from the palette.
  • Click the "New Block" button to create a block combining any contact fields you desire (including custom fields).
  • Your blocks can be added to one or more layouts. Editing a block in use by multiple layouts will affect them all.
  • The "Show" option can specify a contact type, e.g. if a layout is specifically designed for Organization contacts rather than individuals.
  • The "To" option can restrict a layout to be visible to only certain logged-in users.
  • When a user views a contact, the first layout in the list which meets the "Show" and "To" criteria will be shown.
  • If no layout matches the criteria, the default system layout will be used.
