You can add any number of questions to the game. For each question, the following options can be configured:

  • Display answers only on the audience's screen - Enabling this setting will show only answers on the audience’s screen. Answers appear as buttons with images inside. The button images and color correlate to the answers on the moderator’s screen. The audience will not see the question. The moderator will need to show the question and answers to the audience on another screen.

Answers

You can add a minimum number of two answers and a maximum number of eight answers per question. For each answer, the following options can be configured:

  • Point - points awarded for the answer.

  • Button Sound - Sound played when an answer button is clicked.

Poll Settings

Two modes are available to run the poll:

  • Self-Paced - Add as many question/answer combinations as you want to your live poll. Audience members will see every question/answer combo at the top of your Live column as you add them. They will work through each question/answer combo at their own pace if multiple question/answer combos appear in your Live column.

  • Moderated - Only one question/answer combo can be shown live at a time. The moderator must move a new question/answer into the Live column before it appears on the audience’s screen. In this mode, you can also turn on/off the following option:
    Automatically move the next question/answer at the top of the Unpublished queue to the Live queue when the question/answer in the Live column is moved to Complete by the moderator.

Here is the page you’ll see when a Poll is published and launched in Moderated view:

From this page, you can launch two further views:
