What is a data layout? A data layout is a structure applied to a system that defines how the data fields are organized. Data layouts can be different for each system. Different systems organize their data based on their core functionality. A CRM systems data layout may focus mainly on customer and account data where an eCommerce platform or an inventory application may focus on product and stock related fields. Part of the DSYNC integration process enables users to set system data layouts. The data layout is required within DSYNC to help standardize when data is transformed from one system to another. Data layouts will have to be checked or set up for each of your systems on the dashboard and any FTP, email or RSS endpoints you have nominated.
