Video Sessions & Gatherings
Whether it’s a scheduled session or an impromptu one, the AllTakes session offers a number of layouts and features to help you connect with your community.
Guides can Spotlight anyone in the circle so everyone in the room can see them front and center, whether they are speaking or not. Only coaches can spotlight an attendee and can spotlight up to 4 people.
All attendees can pin a video to keep that person front and center. However, unlike Spotlight, that video will only be front and center for the person that pinned it, not for everyone in attendance.
The Coach in charge of the call has the authority to mute any participant according to their discretion. However, only Coaches and Managers overseeing the session have the capability to mute other participants. Although participants can mute themselves, they do not have the power to silence others on the call.
Whenever the Coach mutes a participant, they will receive a notification alerting them that they have been muted. If a participant is muted by the Coach or Manager, they can still unmute themselves.

We recommend ending recordings before asking attendees to share anything personal
To allow your attendees to converse in smaller groups, you can create up to 10 breakout rooms within your AllTakes session.
Simply create the number of rooms needed, and allow your attendees to join their assigned or preferred room. Chat when you’re ready for them to come back, and they can leave their breakout room and return to the main room.
Verbally or visually assign attendees to specific rooms to have an even distribution or
Create themes or discussion topics per room and allow your attendees to choose which to participate in
If an attendee would like to contribute, AllTakes provides the “raise hand” feature. Attendees will show a Hand badge on their video, and also show it on the raised hand list. If multiple people raise their hands, you’ll see the number order on the badge and can also see the order on the raised hand list.
To improve the feeling of community and connectedness, AllTakes uses the Roundtable layout. Just like you’d set up chairs in person, you can see everyone with you and can go around the circle to share. The person speaking is shown in the center of the circle, but everyone sees the same circle layout and order
This layout starts at 4 attendees, and creates another circle at 21 or more attendees.
Panel & Fireside Chat
Select up to 4 speakers to spotlight for a panel interview or Q&A.
Step up your virtual event experience with our creative and immersive webinar format, designed to make your Roundtable session more engaging and memorable.
You can enter webinar mode in 4 ways:
Share your screen
Spotlight yourself in landscape mode
Create a panel
From there, you can adjust your local layout so that the “stage” - what’s being spotlighted or shared - can be emphasized or de-emphasized, depending on your preferences.
Step 1: Click on “Webinar” in the lower right corner.
Step 2: Select your stage.
Small Stage: Small Stage is the perfect option for those who want to see the Roundtable participants more clearly. With up to 20 members displayed in landscape mode, you can easily keep track of who's attending while still being able to view the screen or spotlighted member at the top.
Medium Stage: Medium Stage is ideal for those who want to focus more on the shared screen or spotlighted members. With the option to display up to 10 members below in portrait mode, you can still see who's attending, while the shared screen or spotlighted member takes center stage in a larger and more dynamic format.
Large Stage: With the Large Stage option, you can focus solely on the shared screen or spotlighted members, without any distractions from other participants. This sleek and streamlined display mode allows for a more immersive and engaging experience, making it easier to stay focused on the content at hand.
