Engage attendees with Live Questions&Polls
Live questions and live polls engage the audience in real-time. Attendees can ask questions to the speakers or answer yours through live polls. You can enable live questions and live polls to particular lectures in the tab Engagement → Questions&Polls. Let's explain each of them separately.
Did you know that the fear of public speaking is believed to affect up to 75% of the population? It means that there are probably people in your audience with interesting questions, but are too shy to ask them aloud. That's where live questions feature comes into action:
- Enables to ask questions through Eventee, with a real name or nickname;
- Enables the attendees to vote for the most interesting ones;
- Each session has a separate list of questions
How does it work? You have to allow Live questions for the particular lectures where you want to use them. The list of all the lectures and the possibility to allow Live questions you can find in tab Engagement → Questions&Polls. Just click on the small square next to the word "Questions".
During each individual lecture, when you click on Manage → Questions, you see incoming questions, that are waiting for your approval. Note that only questions displayed in the box Live questions are visible to the attendees. Click on Archived, to see the archived questions, that have been already asked.
You can decide whether you want to automatically approve all of them or not. If you choose to approve them manually, you have to approve all the questions before being visible to the attendees. You can do that through web administration or through your mobile phone. You just have to be in mobile app logged with the same account as in web administration.
For approving questions through web administration, click on Manage and approve/reject incoming questions. Approved questions will be automatically moved into Live questions right beneath.
For approving questions through a mobile app, by clicking on Questions in individual lectures, you can observe the incoming questions, that are waiting for your approval, and approve/reject them. Only the approved questions will be visible to other attendees.
The attendees that are waiting for their question approval see this information on the mobile app.
Another nice feature is, that you can pin exact question to the top of the projector. For example, if you want to mark up the question that is being answered from a speaker at the moment, you can do it so far just through the web administration.
When the questions have been already answered, you can archive them by pressing a single button, so that you will know for sure which questions have been asked and which not. You can do it through the web administration as well as through the mobile app.
Through web administration:
And through mobile app:
Note that attendees can upvote questions that they like, but you as an admin can't upvote questions. If you want to upvote questions, you need to create an account as attendee.
In the web administration, you can also turn on the Projector mode during the lecture and display all the questions in a full-screen mode to all of the attendees. You can choose whether you want to open it in a full screen or in another window. 😊
Live polls help you to collect real-time insights about your audience. With live polls, you can:
- Create an unlimited number of polls for lectures
- Add an unlimited number of answers
- Share the results live with the attendees on a projector
And how does it work? The same as with the Live questions - You have to allow Live polls for the particular lectures where you want to use them. The list of all the lectures and the possibility to allow Live polls you can find in tab Engagement → Questions&Polls. Just tick off the small square next to the word "Polls".
For each individual lecture, when you click on Manage → Polls, you can create an unlimited number of polls. You can prepare them and save them for later, or run them live immediately. You can decide if you want to allow multiple answers (one person can choose more than one answer) or not. When you run the poll, you can also pause it temporarily, or stop it.
You can start and pause all the prepared polls with your mobile phone - only people with admin and moderator roles can do that.
Moreover, you can continuously show the results right in the app to your attendees.However, when you show the results, the attendees who didn't vote see the results and can't vote at the same time. When you turn it off, attendees can continue voting again.
In the web administration in polls management, you can also turn on the Projector mode during the lecture and display all the answers in a full-screen mode.
