Phipps Tips Week 1

In response to the pandemic and in an effort to assist our legal community family in being able to continue to move their cases, we created our very own Remote Litigation Academy which provides specific information on how to litigate in a remote environment. We also have been hosting free webinars and conducting law firm and 1:1 trainings on remote litigation.

While we have been providing remote litigation as a service all over the world for the last decade, the last six months continue to present changes to technical platforms and evolving discovery of solutions that will aid you in your day-to-day litigation activities; therefore, we are now going to be providing weekly Phipps’ Tips.

I completely understand overflowing email inboxes, so please click here if you do not want to receive our weekly Phipps’ Tips.

Welcome to Phipps’ Tips #1


Organize Zoom’s Gallery View During
Depositions & Hearings with Numerous Participants

During Zoom depositions and hearings where there are many parties connected, there is a new feature within Zoom’s gallery view that allows you to customize the order in which each participant appears on your screen.

                Watch this new feature live in action:

Custom Gallery View Organization

  • When in Gallery View, you can click and drag videos to create a custom organization.
  • After the first change, all other participant tiles will remain in place until moved.
  • New participants will be added to the bottom-right, on the last page if multiple are present.
  • Your custom order will be seen only by you, or the host can deploy their custom view to all participants.
  • This order can be released, and gallery view will return to normal behavior.

1. Click and drag any participant video to the location on screen you want.

2. Continue as needed to achieve your desired on-screen order.

3. (Optional) As the host, click View, then Follow Host’s Video Order, to deploy your custom view to all participants.

4. Click View, then Release Video Order, to release the custom order.
