There are two ways to enable polls in the webinar room.
Before the event
Before the event, you can enable polls and set them up to show up at a certain time during your event. This is very handy as it allows you to concentrate on delivering the content itself, and if you know the exact time you want that poll to show up.
To do this:
- Log in to your Account Dashboard.
- Click on 'All Events'.
- Click on the event that you wish to enable the poll for.
- Under the 'In-Webinar Options' submenu for that event, click on 'Enable Poll'.
After you do this, you will see a menu pop up allowing you to set the time that you want the poll to appear, the question of the poll, and the options or responses an attendee can click on.
You will be able to see the responses for that attendee in the Attendee Report - click on 'Attendees', then export the file in CSV, PDF, or Excel format, and you will be able to see the responses for each individual attendee.
Setting up the Poll in the event room
You can also set up the poll on demand in the event room.
- Click on 'Tools'.
- Click on 'Create Poll'.
- A window will pop up allowing you to list the question and the responses.
- Click 'Create Poll' and it will be sent to all attendees.
The responses are stored under the Attendee Report. You can find this report on your Account Dashboard under 'Attendees'. Select the webinar that you are interested in and then export the attendee file in CSV, Excel, or PDF format. All attendees who answered the poll will have their responses listed there.
As always, let us know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or clicking on the 'Submit a Request' button along the top.
