Using Settings to show/hide fields


Several pages have a settings link at the top right as indicated in the Figure 1. The Settings link can be used to enable/disable various fields on the add/edit screen depending on your personal usage. You can enable the fields you regularly use and disable those that you do not use.  This is normally a one-time action where you setup the page to show those fields that you will be using or hide those fields that you will not be using.
