Logical and simple arrangement of the page layout is important for ease of use and increasing user adoption of Salesforce.com. Do not assume that a default page layout is appropriate for your organization. Talk with your Salesforce users and get their feedback on how they think a page should be arranged. As a best practice, fields should be arranged in a logical format with appropriate sections and then standardized across all of your pages and objects. This makes finding and entering data easier and can improve user adoption of Salesforce.com.
