Polls are a function within the WorkCast Platform that allow the event organiser or presenter to ask the audience questions during a webinar.
The polls are pushed out from the WorkCast Studio and appear within the auditorium while audiences are watching live events.
They can act as a way of:
To add a poll to your webinar navigate to your Event within the WorkCast Platform and access the Event Experience section.
In the Extras tab, within the Add Polls section, click the ADD button.
Type in a Question you wish to ask your audience in the corresponding text box.
You can then choose the type of answer selection the audience can choose from:
The first 3 options require selectable answers to be added into the Choices text box. Separate each answer with a comma. Choices not separated by commas will not be differentiated by the Platform.
You can make responding to poll questions mandatory by checking the option 'Is Required?'.
The audience then must answer the poll question otherwise the poll will appear on the page until the end of the live webinar unless the page is refreshed by the viewer or they close the page. The webinar will still play behind the poll pop-up if they choose not to answer.
Click Save when you have completed your question options and the poll question will be added to your event ready to push out live via the WorkCast Studio.
To use Polls during your live event you must ensure the Event Polls pod is displayed within the WorkCast Studio.
To enable this, click white arrow to the right of the Studio and select Event Polls from the list.
The event polls pod will be added to to your main studio page view. Expand the pod to see the content.
To ask a poll question, once an event is broadcasting, you can navigate to the Event Polls pod, select which question to push out to your audience and click the Ask button.
The audience will then see the poll question popup in their view of the Auditorium, prompting them to answer.
Once you have allowed ample time for your audience to respond you can retrieve the results of your poll by clicking the Get Results button.
The percentage results of your poll will then appear as a Pie Chart below. You can also choose to publish these results to the audience by clicking the Publish button. If you choose to do this, a pop-up will again appear for attendees containing the results of the poll.
You can close/end the poll by clicking the End button. This will remove any question boxes still visible within the Auditorium (e.g. if someone has not answered that specific poll, the box will disappear and they will be unable to answer).
