A Layout is a versatile feature that shapes the entire user interface within Forest Admin. It encompasses everything visible on the screen and you can customize it by enabling the Layout Editor mode, which reveals orange components. Through click-and-drag actions, you can modify various elements such as the display names of collections and fields, the widgets assigned to fields, and more.
This flexibility allows you to tailor the admin panel to the specific needs of different users. For instance, developers might prefer a layout showcasing technical collections and fields, aligning with the underlying database structure for precise technical insights. On the other hand, founders could benefit from a high-level view with key metrics for informed business decision-making. Operational teams might utilize a layout presenting collections in a business-friendly manner, with elements renamed and styled to streamline operational tasks.
With the capability to create multiple layouts, each adapted to different roles within the company, Forest Admin ensures that users have a customized experience that aligns with their responsibilities and preferences.
