It might look like this:
This helps you enter date more efficiently by eliminating the need to navigate through unused fields during data entry.
A filled-out "Data Entry" PROFILE might look like this:
Data Viewing PROFILE
Using the same sample constituent data record:
You can create a "Data Viewing" PROFILE that shows only the information you need when reviewing a client's record.
That profile could look like this:

Data Searching PROFILE
To view only the fields you need for a search (dictated by your business process), you can create a "Data Searching" PROFILE.
That profile could look like this:

You search only on the fields needed, and view results with only that data.
An example of a "Data Searching" PROFILE could look like this:
