Stage Layouts allow you to make a diagram of where different people should be on your stage. People with Editor permissions can edit Stage Layouts. Services Administrators can create new layouts as well.

Set Up Stage Layouts


Before setting up your stage layout, schedule people to the plan that you are creating the layout for.

To create stage layouts, click Add in the Files section of a plan.


Go to the Stage Layout tab to create your layout from one of the available templates or create a new template.

If you have enabled stage layouts in the Team Settings, and those teams are scheduled to the plan, those teams will already be displayed on the left panel People tab.

To add new teams to the stage layout, go to the People tab, and click Add Team.

If you don't see teams or people you'd like to add to the layout, make sure that the teams and people are scheduled to the plan.

To hide a team that you don't want to show on the layout, click the dropdown next to the team and click Hide Team.

Clicking the trash can for an individual or object moves their label back to the left panel. It doesn't completely delete them from the layout.
