Frequently asked questions
The following questions are answered in more detail in the Q&A webinar below:
00:35 Can you have live polling and Q&A in the same session?
Yes, for sure. Most clients use it in combination with polling, surveys, and quizzes, all in the same session. So, for example, when the Q&A board is open, but a new poll is being asked, the participant will be able to answer the poll and revert back to the Q&A board without losing any content.
01:33 Is there a way to add external moderators to Q&A?
Additional moderators come in handy, especially when moderation is turned on. An extra pair of hands can help manage the Q&A board deciding what comments & questions to show to the participants, while the facilitator can focus on answering these questions. These moderators do not need to have their own Vevox accounts. Read this article on how to share your moderation.
05:56 Can I turn off the Q&A board during a session?
Definitely, just go to the settings menu and turn it off. The Q&A board will instantly disappear from the participants app.
07:02 How to dedicate time to Q&A sessions.
A little planning goes a long way. Sometimes the best solution is to have the Q&A board open before the session starts and then at the end of the session. There is no right or wrong answer, as many clients also use the Q&A board throughout the session. A good tip is to remind your participants when the Q&A board is open/closed.
09:20 Reasons to share your Vevox presentation.
Sharing your Vevox session with a colleague is always a good backup plan to counteract unplanned events like traffic, illness, or power cuts. Read this article on how to share your whole Vevox session (not just moderation) with your colleague.
10:14 More on labels for the Q&A board.
Labels are used to help ease the moderation and management of the Q&A board. For example, you can filter the Q&A board for a specific topic or certain speakers when using labels. Read this article on how to use labels.
11:54 Should participants be anonymous or Identified when using the Q&A board?
This depends on your setup and what you want to achieve with your session. Why not give your participants the choice to decide for themselves? Read this article on how to set up participant identification.
