Character View Overview

Michelle Salatto Updated by Michelle Salatto

To access a Character View page, use the Universal Search bar to find a Character, or click the blue hyperlink of the Character name from the Scene Index, Character Index, or the Inventory Index.

The Character View displays Character details for multiple departments, so if you have access to more than one department, you can view all of the information assigned to that Character on the Character View.

Click the Next and Previous buttons to go to the next or previous Character.

Edit Character Details

Character Details will display on the Sidebar of this page. You can update the Character Details by clicking on the Sidebar Ellipsis and selecting Edit. From here you can update the Character Number(s), Name, Actor, Gender, Age, Description, or Add/Remove them from Episodes.

For episodics, there is only one version of the Character for the full season. See Principal Characters with Multiple Numbers to learn how to add a different character number for an episode.


Photos

Each Character has a Photo carousel for all the images tagged to that Character. Photos must be tagged to the Character and not be tagged as Research to display in this carousel. 

The photos that are synced up from your team’s mobile devices will display here if tagged correctly. To add new photos, click Add Photo from the Sidebar Ellipsis menu.

Note: If you upload a photo from this page, the photo will automatically tag to that Character. Additionally, if you only have one department selected in the Department Selector, then the photo will automatically be associated to that department.


Assign Characters to Scenes

You can add a Character to Scenes in the Scene card on the Character View page. Click Add on the Scene card to select which existing Scenes you would like to add the Character to.
