Dragging participant to the stage

 
This feature is not available for webinars in webcast view.

Participants that you move to the stage appear in the order that you added them in. Up to eight participants can appear on the stage at any given time. So, if the host or cohost syncs their stage and adds participants to it, you can only add more participants if one or more of the slots on the stage is available. To learn more about stage view, see Video layouts in Webex Meetings, Webex Webinars and Webex Events (classic) or Webex App | Change your video layout during a meeting.

If you're using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, this feature only works in Webex App.
