Yes you can, under My Settings ---> Room Settings ---> default Video Layout

Thanks, but I meant for all users.  We want to change the default for everyone administratively.
Hi Kevin,

You have the option to change the default meeting layout for all users in the meeting using the webapp's moderator controls. You can even do this from a conference room by pairing your laptop to your room system. Check out this thread for more information on pairing. 

Do you use a room system and need to pair? Here are what the controls look like from the web app:

Thanks, but I was asking from an administrative standpoint, not within a meeting as mod.  I already know the answer is no, but just to be clear, I meant that I wanted, as admin, to select all of the users in my company and modify their default meeting layouts so that when they schedule a future meeting, the default is Constant Presence instead of Active Presence.

Hi Kevin - Sorry about that! Unfortunately, you cannot push out default layouts from the admin console. I will take this to our product team as an idea and look at making this an admin group setting. The focus of Blue Jeans is for each end user to be able to control his or her own experience, but I will be sure to pass this on. Stay tuned!
