All of us have came across scenarios, where a VTiger CRM record is bombarded with a number of different fields. In such situations some of the fields are necessary and some of them are only to be filled if a specific condition is met. For example, in below provided screenshot, all the fields related to the signal will only be filled, if signals enabled is set to “yes”. It would be far much better if all the fields like Signal Reach, Signal screen, Signal Strength are kept hidden and only made visible to the user once the choose “yes” option for the Signals enabled. In this article, we will discsus a great tool for Vtiger named as Conditional layout extension developed by VTExperts. There are countless examples in which businesses have various field for a record, but in most cases not even half of them are being used. Such scenarios
