  • Go to Admin Center > Manage Calibration Templates and open the template you want to use.
  • Click the Advanced tab and select the "Enable stack ranking in bin view" or "Enable stack ranker within Calibration".
  • Once enabled, during a session, you will see a new numbered column in your session page.
  • You can move names up or down by drag and dropping the rows to reorder them.
