Virtual Stage

Tom Metz -

WP's Virtual Stage allows you to drag and drop service role icons on a virtual stage graphic. This can be used to help inform team members and/or stagehands where equipment is to be set up.

To use the Virtual Stage, roles must have a graphic icon associated with them. This can be done by:

  1. Hover on the People navigation link
  2. Click Roles/Skills menu option
  3. Click the edit (pencil) icon of the role to which you'd like to associate an icon
  4. Click the link allowing you to change the virtual stage icon
  5. Choose the appropriate icon, then click Save

You can also change the default stage image to one that is a better match for what you have at your church. To do so:

  1. Hover over your Account link under your profile name
  2. Click on the Church Info menu item
  3. Click on the Edit This Info button
  4. Find the Stage Shape row and click the link to select a stage

You also have the option to specify a stage shape for a particular service. If none is specify in the service information, the default stage for the church will be used.

    Hi Jonathan.  Thanks for the great feedback.  The icon set we have up there now was originally developed strictly for use on the virtual stage.  However, it has recently grown in usage throughout the site.  We are looking into both expanding the icon set and allowing end user uploads of customer icons.  I don't have a timeframe yet, but it's something we hope to get to soon.

    I seem to have a very limited icon list.  there's an upright bass and cello, but no violin?  Also, how do I define intrumentalist that are also singing.  We need this for proper stage prep.  I'm struggling with figuring out how to toggle someones rpimary role to secondary roles when I choose them to play.  Thanks in advance.

    Okay, I figured out how to change roles-pretty simple really.  I'm still looking for help on the role icons.  Thanks.

    Hi Keith,

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you.  We don't have any new icons to share.  However, did you know that you can upload your own role icons?  Here's how:

    1. Add/edit a role
    2. Go to the "Files" tab for that role and upload the desired image to use as an icon
    3. Go back to the "Notes/Description & Icon" tab, and click the button to "Change" the icon.
    4. Your uploaded image should now appear as an icon option.

    Do you think this will work for you?
