Once you hit Live Control on your Presentation, you will be directed into our live control green room. In this green room you will be able to view the live stream feed that is coming through. When you are ready for your session to be live and accessible for delegates to view you must click on Go Live.
The Live Control panel allows you to access both the Slide Remote tab and also the Q&A moderation. For details on how to control Q&A moderation please visit our Q&A support article.
You can access Live Control in three ways:
When you copy the live control link this will generate a secure link with an access token to the Live Control page; copying the Live Control URL from the browser window will not work. Please note that the link copied and pasted from the clipboard button is only accessible when the account is active and logged into. If the main user logs out while someone is presenting, the link will no longer function and the main user will need to log back in and copy and send the new link to allow a user to present once again.
If you are unable to access the live control screen from the shared link, please see our FAQ on why your shared moderation link is not working.
Within the slide remote tab, you can see the duration of a presentation in addition to the number of slides you have already progressed through by viewing the toolbars. You can also see how many attendees have joined your session.
Please note: the number of attendees will show the total number of attendees that have joined your session, not your live count.
You can progress through the slides by using your keyboard, a clicker, or by clicking on the orange arrow.
To release polls you must simply move onto that polling slide like you do with any other content slide – this action will bring up the poll on the audience view. Press the spacebar once to reveal results in live time and press the spacebar once more (twice in total) to push those results out to the audience. Please note that results pushed to the audience will be paused and if you want these to update then you must press the space bar twice more if you wish to update to the most recent results.
You can pull up the Q&A wall and the Leaderboard functionality within your main presentation by pressing the 3 and 6 hotkeys. To see the Glisser hotkeys at any point while you are presenting, you can press the “H” key on your keyboard, pressing H once more will remove this.
You will also be able to see your video feed within your Live Control screen. This means you’ll be able to monitor stream health, how the video is looking, and moderate as an admin for the video feed. Of course, the video feed can be displayed in a variety of different ways and if you want to change the size and place of the video stream then you can click on the camera icon.
These icons at the top of the screen will help you control your session.
When you enter a poll slide while controlling your session, you automatically trigger the poll for your entire audience. From this view, you have 3 different options to how your polls are displayed. These options are reflected in the top left hand corner of your live control slide view. The options are reflected by three icons: a question mark, a pie chart, and a pause button. You can toggle between these options using your space bar.
You are also allowed to close polls and restrict attendees from responding. This is a perfect feature for sessions with CPD/CPE eligibility which requires a certain number of polls to be presented within a specific timeframe. The option to close polls is shown at the very center of your live control slide view above the poll question.
To close or open polls:
The moderation panel will display any questions that are coming through and also the video stream. If you do not want to display the video stream or if it is impacting your view of the Q&A, then you must click on the camera icon to change the view. Click here to learn more about moderation!
