Here are a few tips and pointers to keep in mind when using the polling functionality:
- Make sure your session is in the ‘Start’ status before you start your session or online class. If it is in the ‘Waiting’ status – your participants will be able to join the session but cannot access the Q&A message board or polling yet. If your session is in the ‘Stopped’ status, your session is inactive and cannot be found by the participants.
- If your session is already in the ‘Started’ status and still does not want to launch, try refreshing your browser.
- After you have finished polling and would like to use the result images of a vote in a PowerPoint slide to share with others follow these steps:
Select the ‘Download as images’ below the poll or survey question. Each poll must be downloaded as an individual image (PNG) and will be stored in your downloads folder.
From your PowerPoint slide, go to ‘Insert’ then ‘Pictures’ and then select ‘This device’. This will allow you to go to the download folder and insert the relevant image you wish to use in your PowerPoint.
