The layout configuration options can be used to adjust what content from the widget is printed out to the page. This allows the same item of content to be reused in multiple places yet it stores the data in one Asset so it can be edited in one place.

For example, we can show the Profile Image in one region of the page and the text content in another region, and we can add multiple instances of the "Send Email" link if needed.
