    Great question! In a security group you can go to the Users subpanel, edit a row, and set the Primary Group checkbox. This will take precedence as the primary layout to use. Otherwise, it grabs whatever comes back from the database first.

    Thank you for your fast answer.

    A last question.

    It could be posible to use a layout according to a variable or a behavior similar to strict right

    For example. 3 Security groups each of them with a layout. A user who belong for the 3 groups. The user uses a layout according with the groups assigned to the record, or a field in the record

    Again, Thank you and congratulation for for your work

      Not out of the box, but if you or someone on your team is comfortable with PHP then it is possible to do that.

      For example, if you need a specific detail view layout to show based on a field value you would add your logic to /include/MVC/View/views/view.detail.php in the preDisplay() function. It'll be obvious where the SecuritySuite logic is there. Alter as needed for your needs, but back this up as it will be overwritten after every CRM upgrade.

      Hope this helps!
