Each of the Layout options are described below. Remember, all your changes will be auto-saved as you make changes.  

Icon Size Selection  (drop-down menu) 

  • Select the drop-down arrow of the sizing field. Your options are: Small, Medium or Large. Try these options and you will see the icons change immediately. Choose the size that will best fit the screen for the number of Members you have to display.     

Drag & Drop Functionality 

  • You can simply touch or click on any Member Icon to move/drag it to any position on the screen. Do this until this view is in a manner that reflects how the Members sit in the room, from the vantage point of the Chair.   
  • EXAMPLE:  It is recommended that you arrange your members in a configuration that the chair may see as he/she looks at the Members out in the room. The following screen is one example. You can move members around and change the icon size to fit the configuration you desire.
