We have the ability to set the default video layout for attendees when joining a meeting or Event ("Default event's video layout") for either Active Speaker with Thumbnails View OR Grid View. Please also allow the capability of specifying "Side by Side" view OR "Thumbnail" view as a default when sharing content so that we can enforce a consistent participant experience (at least by default).
When hosting large events, we want to make sure that participants start out with the "Side by Side" view that way the shared content fills the entire left side of the screen with a larger presenter video on the right. It currently defaults to the "Thumbnail" view and we have to try and walk participants through changing the view settings before each meeting which is time consuming and not the easiest task depending on familiarity with the platform. Thanks for the consideration!
