Syncing your stage view with everyone

When you use the Stack or Side by side view, the active speaker or shared content appears in a customizable area, called the stage. As the host or cohost, you can sync your stage with everyone else in the meeting or event. As you add or remove people from the stage, other participants see those changes in real time. When you sync your stage, an indicator appears, letting you know that you're syncing. To learn more about the stage, see Video Layouts in Cisco Webex Meetings and Cisco Webex Events.

Your synced stage doesn't appear for participants who join using an iPhone or Android phone, a video device, or from a live stream. Your stage also doesn't appear in recordings of your meeting or event.

For more information about the known issues and limitations of syncing your stage, see the Known Issues and Limitations for video layouts.


Click Layout > Sync my stage for everyone.


To stop syncing your stage, click Layout > Sync my stage for everyone again.


When you stop syncing, everyone's stage stays in the most recent configuration. We recommend that you reset your stage to the default layout before you stop syncing.
