Scene Index Overview

After uploading a script, all of the Scene information will live on the Scene Index. If you’re working on a multi-department production, this information is the same across all departments.

Click Scenes in the top navigation bar to access the Scene Index.

What is populated automatically? Scene Numbers, Script Locations, and Principal Characters.

What requires manual entry? Script Day, Description, Background Characters, and Shoot Date.

The Scene Index has a scrollable table with a scrollbar that is independent from the page itself. To access all of your Scenes, use the table's scrollbar:

Note: The Scene Index shows information from the episodes you have selected in the Episode Selector. Scenes will appear in grey once the shoot date has passed.
