For example, Drupal by default has a Teaser view mode that you can set up to display different fields from your Full Content view mode. This module will allow you to add your own view modes on top of the ones Drupal gives you by default.

The Drupal 7 Panelizer Module allows you to panelize (or use panels) for any entity type on your Drupal 7 site. This allows you to change the layout of a node page, user page, or any other type of entity that you can think of. Although it's a little more complicated to set up, the Panelizer module allows you to set up a slimmed down panels interface for other site managers to use. This way you can allow a site manager to change the layout of specific node pages or even choose from a list of predefined node layouts that you set up.

I recently ran across a problem of needing multiple Drupal Commerce add to cart buttons on a single page. Instead of trying to add a second add to cart form, I decided it would be easiest to create a custom link that could then be used to add products to the cart. This is useful if you need to create multiple add to cart links on the same page, or if you just need to create custom add to cart links to place in other areas of your Drupal Commerce website.
