About User Page Layouts
You can define a number of types of page layouts for user records. The page layout types correspond to different views of the user details in Oracle CRM On Demand. The following types of user page layouts are available from the User Application Customization page:
The separate user page layout types are useful when you have user fields that contain private data. In this situation, you do not want the private fields to be visible when a user drills down on a user name from a record. You can therefore make the private fields available in the page layouts of the User Owner layout type or the User Admin layout type, but you can make the private fields unavailable in the page layouts of the User layout type.
Page layouts are assigned to particular roles. Therefore, by assigning the appropriate page layouts to a role, you ensure that users with that role cannot see any private fields that they should not be able to see.
The following are examples of the type of field that can be useful to track as private fields for particular roles:
The separate user page layout types are also useful when you want to make fields read-only for some users. In this case, you make the fields available as read-only fields in the page layouts of the User Owner layout type for user roles that you do not want to be able to edit the fields.
CAUTION: Certain restrictions apply to adding the Reports To field and the Reports To (Alias) field to user page layouts. For more information, see About the Reports To and Reports To (Alias) Fields on User Records.
