Details page flexible column layout

To optimize the space of your details tab, Insightly Administrators can configure an object's Page Layout to separate fields into multiple columns.

When you open the full-screen view of a record, the section will be organized into columns. If you open the record in the blade view and the window is wide enough, the record will be reformatted to display several columns.


The fields are automatically organized into columns. The column that a field appears in is determined by the order they are in the original Page Layout. Each field will alternate between columns.

For example, say you have 4 fields. Fields 1 and 3 will be in column A and fields 2 and 4 will be in column B.

To enable multiple columns

  1. Go to System Settings > Objects and Fields.
  2. Select an Object.
  3. Go to Page Layouts. Select a layout.
  4. Hover over a subsection until icons appear. An example of a subsection would be the Name and Occupation section contained within the Details section. Click the gear icon.
  5. Select Two Columns, Three Columns, or Flex-Column. If 2 or 3 columns are set and the display is wide enough, this section will render fields in number of columns. If Flex-Column is set and the display width is wide enough, this section will render fields in multiple columns.
  6. Click Save Changes

  7. When you have finished, click Save Layout.
