I am attempting to implement self service for service cloud using salesforce communities. We now have the case list and the record page all set up. I have given the community profile their own page layout and assigned it to them.

The issue is that any field in the page layout that is inside a section is not being displayed on the case detail (record detail page). If I pull the fields outside of the section (any section) then the logged in community user can see the field based on the FLS I have set. This invisible field in section is also happening for admins going into the community to that record page.

What setting/configuration am I missing? Is it intended that page layout sections are not displayed on record detail pages in a community?

case page layout only two fields outside of section are shown

Case record detail page in community. Only fields outside of sections are shown

  • Can you add the screenshot of the section please?

  • I added screenshots @manjit5190 but this is happening for any section on the page layout. We are using the Case Record Detail page in Community to display it.

Turns out this issue was because our designer had CSS to hide all sections that I was not aware of.
