The difference between tabs and sub panels?


I would like to know what is the difference between tabs and sub panels?
Thank you for your answer.

Tabs are a design feature that allow you to group together fields on a single page usually horizontally. Like you have tabs on your web browser, you can easily move between different sources of information, and in SuiteCRM case the tabs on the page are groups of fields which you the admin user can define in Studio.

Sub Panels are isolated sources of information that relate to the module you are viewing. These are usually grouped by the relationship that the record has to other modules e.g. Accounts, Contacts etc. You can make customised sub-panels that work with entirely different sources of information but they are usually made via code.

Hope that helps.
