Default layouts

Every organization has a default layout for conferences. This is set in the StarLeaf Portal in My organization > Edit organization > Advanced settings:

This is the default layout for new ad hoc and scheduled conferences. However, individual users can override this:

  • For ad hoc conferences, users can choose a different layout for all their ad hoc conferences in the StarLeaf Portal > My profile (refer to Edit your own profile)
  • For scheduled conferences, user can choose a different layout when they schedule a conference (refer to How to schedule a conference)
  • During a conference, StarLeaf endpoint users can override the conference layout and choose a different layout just for their own view (described in In-call conference control and icons)
