Audience Polling Display Queue

Audience Polling questions are created in a Display Queue. This queue will cycle through when using the Audience Polling feature. Each question will appear one after the other in the queue order.

The Display Queue is complete once each question has been asked once. The queue is designed to run through once.

 

Start processing the Display Queue (ask Audience Polling questions)

Once pre-populated, the Display Queue containing all Audience Polling questions can begin.

Questions will cycle through in the queued order, the next question appearing once the previous question has been closed and removed. Questions can be reordered from the CMS to suit and updates to question order.

Please note: Questions will continue to cycle through until all questions in the queue after that question has been asked. For example, the first question asked might be the 4th question in the queue of 6 questions. Questions 4 to 6 will be asked as part of the queue, however, as questions 1 to 3 were first in the queue, these will not be asked.

TIP:

Once a question has been asked, it will no longer be part of the Display Queue. When testing, results will need to be reset in order to reset the Display Queue.

Reset the Audience Polling Display Queue

When testing Interactive Sessions, best practice encourages Audience Polling questions to be tested on the Display Screen prior to the event. Once a question has been asked, it will no longer be part of the Display Queue, which means the Display Queue will need to be reset in order to start again.

Before resetting the Display Queue, ensure that there are no open questions from testing.
