Layouts give you a means to control different navigations on a per-user basis. This can be especially handy if you wish to create a client-specific menu, while not affecting the navigation for site Admins.

To create a layout, click the Layout tab from the Control Panel Nav Settings page. You cannot alter the default layout, which as it suggests, is what users will see if you don't specify a layout.
