Stage Layouts

Created on:
Updated on:

Stage layouts allow you to make a diagram of where people and items should be on your stage. These layouts can be shared across all service types so that any plan can use the same layout with different elements.


General administrators can create new layouts, and folder admins and editors can edit them.

To create a stage layout, select Add in the Files section of a plan.


Create Layout Templates

Create a template to match the stage or room, starting with a picture or drawing of the space.

Select New Template.

Name the template, import a file, and select Add Template.


Use the Image Sizing Guide to upload the right size and file type.

Once the image is uploaded, the new template will show in the list of templates, and you can use it to create a new layout.

Create a New Layout

Add elements to the layout so your teams know where each element belongs.

Select an existing template.
