    Staging - if your model is staged, you can specify the installation stage of the joint(s). Note that a joint removal stage cannot be defined. However, a joint is automatically removed if the material on either (or both) sides of the joint is excavated. See details in the Add Joint – Joints and Staging section.

    Install at stage - by default, the installation stage will be set to the stage that you are currently viewing (i.e. the currently selected stage tab). You can enter a different stage if necessary.
The Joint Property type and Staging information can also be changed or modified at any time after joints have been added with the Assign Joint Properties option.
