Once you have launched Present view you will manage your polls from the control bar at the bottom of the screen. Your participants will see the same screen and the control bar as you do. Using the unobtrusive control bar, you can manage your session with efficiency.
From the control bar you can easily:
You can launch a poll by clicking the play button.
Jump straight to the next poll. Once you've run your first poll of the session, your subsequent polls will appear ready for you to hit play again. You can control the speed at which the polls are asked and guide the conversation as the session progress.
You can close a poll by clicking the stop button. Keep an eye out for the counter on the top right corner and wait till the majority of your results are in.
The default set-up in Vevox is that all results will automatically be displayed. This feature is helpful if you want to stop the audience from being swayed by other answers in multichoice polls or quizzes, or if you have a particularly sensitive question to ask and do not want to reveal the answer. If you would like to hide the results of the specific poll, press the hide results option in the control bar. All voting results will be hidden and the display will revert back to the Q&A board.
Hovering over the question in the control bar will bring up a pop-up window showing where are you in your session. This will give a quick glance of what polls have been asked, what polls have results, and what poll is up next. (Look at the small icon next to each question.)
You can also decide to jump a poll(s) and by selecting the secondary play option next to the new poll you want to ask. Remember this can only be done after a poll has been closed and the results are displayed. In this example you asked poll number 8, it has some results and you are jumping straight to poll number 10.
Closed the poll to quickly, or would you like to explain the question again before asking? For this handy option click on the question and move to the polls with results. A re-run button will appear on the right side of the question. Select it and your poll will automatically open up again ready to take new results.
It has always been possible to cancel a poll from your Vevox dashboard but to help you save time (and changing browser windows), you can now cancel polls from Present View too. When hovering over the control bar, select the cancel button to skip the question. The present view will revert back to the Q&A board, and when you press the play button, the next question will appear.
You can show a leaderboard anytime during your session when you have set up correct answers in your session. Simply press the leader board button on the left. A summary leaderboard will appear on the present view while an individual leaderboard will appear on participant devices. Note: If you have not set up any correct answers in your meeting, no leaderboard icon will show.
This feature allows participants to ask and view questions in the Q&A board whilst a poll remains open. Press the shortcut from your control bar to immediately move to the Q&A message board in present view. It will display what is already in the Q&A board. (Note: Participant devices will stay on the open poll). From here you can first address the crucial issues before moving on to the next poll.
While you are on the Q&A board there will be an indication at the top that a poll is still open as well as a shortcut to go back to the live polling.
This short cut allows the presenter to enter and exit full screen.
The Control bar also offers additional functions when you press the options menu (three dots) next to the question. From here you can either:
- customize your theme,
- You also have the option to use the dashboard view to clear results, launch new polls & push results to participants.
When you want to focus or highlight a specific comment or idea, click with your mouse on the comment to enlarge it. Click on it again to minimize it back to its original size. Also select the shortcut 'hide icon' if you would like to instantly remove a comment from the Q&A board.
