  • What is the “Default” Layout

    When your companies account was first registered with Profyle Card a “Default” Layout was created, all people’s online profyle’s will use this layout as default this is fine and can be used.

    for companies that need different designed Profyle Cards for different parts of their organisations, different teams or groups of individuals then you have the option to create new layouts for these “Groups” these are called custom layouts

  • What is a Custom Layout ?

    for companies that need different designed Profyle Cards for different parts of their organisations, different teams or groups of individuals then you have the option to create new layouts for these "Groups" these are called custom layouts 

    Custom layout can be tweaked slightly from the default layout e.g additional content added, such as sales related brochures and videos for customer facing teams OR can be created with completely different branding, colours and style guide.


    • When a default layout is created it will use the default template as an initial style guide
    • Once created a custom layout is no longer linked to the default layout, as such any changes will need to be updated specifically for each layout.
    • For the layout to be used you first need to
      • Assign it to a Group from the Groups Section
      • People then need to be assigned into that group from the People Section.
    • A person cant be assigned a custom layout directly.
