As a presenter, you have the option to include an audience question wall (Q&A Feature), where audience members can post questions from their devices. You can choose to either moderate the questions or allow audience members to post directly to the question wall.
You can also have pre-set questions, loaded and ready to be answered.
Using the Q&A feature encourages people in your audience to ask questions who wouldn’t have necessarily had the courage to otherwise.
If you don’t intend to use a slide deck in your presentation, then click Add Session from your presentation dashboard and select Simple Q&A and Polling. This will create a simple Q&A feed without slides.
If you intend to use a slide deck in your presentation then click Add Session from your presentation dashboard and select Interactive Slide Sharing. This will then create a Slide Deck Presentation and will take you to your slide management view. To enable Q&A, select Interaction Settings and turn on the Audience Q&A toggle. If you would like to have the ability to moderate questions then turn on Moderation toggle.
For additional guidance see our guide on Moderating Your Question Feed and Presentation.
To allow your delegates the opportunity to add their names alongside their comments, please ensure that your Data Security is set to either Verified Email or Social. Under Attendee Connections you can then turn on the toggle for Named Q&A. Delegates will have the opportunity to create a profile if they haven’t done so already.
For additional guidance see our guide on Attendee-2-Attendee Connectivity.
As you are presenting your slides, you can choose to bring up the question wall at any time by selecting the 3 key on your Glisser presenting laptop keyboard, which is one of the hotkeys.
Audience members can up-vote the questions, which sets the order they appear on the main screen. This encourages the presenter to answer those most upvoted first, ensuring the content is relevant and in line with what the audience want to hear.
You are able to review all questions asked during the session after the presentation from the analytics module. The analytics module displays who asked each question (only if ID Capture or Email Capture was enabled), meaning you can follow up with them directly if you didn’t have time during the presentation.
You can also download the list of questions as a CSV file or export to a third-party platform.
