One of the most impactful things you can do in your salesforce.com to increase adoption, satisfaction, efficiency, and productivity among your users is to give your page layouts and related lists a makeover.
It’s true! While custom fields, relationships, formulas, workflows and reports are the workhorses that make your salesforce.com such a powerful tool, it is hard to harness that power if the environment is not optimized. New users can be confused and discouraged by complex customizations that are cramped and cluttered. And as you know, poor user adoption leads to bad data and frustrated admins!
