Have you ever found yourself wishing you didn’t have to scroll past unused fields in your CRM software? Maybe people in other departments need them but your department doesn’t. Or, maybe you have sensitive information that needs to be captured and you don’t want everyone in the company to be able to see it. Or, maybe custom functionality needs to be added for certain people. Or, maybe ….

In the first one, some of the default fields are visible under the General section.

You can switch back and forth between these two versions by clicking on the word at the top of the navigation list of form sections. A drop-down list of form versions will appear for you to select.
Behind the scenes, all possible fields that can appear on the Contact form are in the database. However, only certain ones are chosen to appear on a particular version of a form. The form itself is created in the Customization area of CRM.
The differences between versions can be a lot more complicated than just a couple of extra fields.

Also, each form can have its own custom scripts that respond to form events and add enhanced functionality.
