How to Run a Poll?
I'd like to run my DirectPoll in a browser, how do I do that?
Just open the result-link in a separate browser window. You can obtain this link either directly from the DirectPoll cockpit or from your DirectPoll administration mail.
I’d like to include my poll in my PowerPoint presentation, how can I do this?
At this time, you'll have to switch from the presentation to a web browser showing the results screen. You can make this transition appear seamless by putting the browser in full-screen mode on the presentation screen before you start playing the presentation. That way, when you temporarily switch out of the presentation, the DirectPoll result screen is shown.
We are working on a tool we call ShowKit that will allow you to control your poll within your PowerPoint presentation. We don't have a release date for this tool yet.
Oh no, I lost my admin-mail! Will I ever get it back?
That's bad. Unfortunately we can't help you out with. Please re-enter your questions and preserve the admin-link this time. But before you do that, check your browser’s history: the links to your poll are persistent, so they will still work.
Can I add questions while conducting a poll?
Sure. They’ll be added after pushing
Your cockpit control is updated immediately after you saved the poll. You may use your questions as soon as the poll is started and the new questions appear in the dropdown of your cockpit control.
I like to start with the first question
So does DirectPoll. It displays the first question on the result page and the voting page after you pressed "START" on this element
for the first time.
Where do I see the answers to the current question?
Just open the result page with this link.
You may want to use it in fullscreen mode while doing your presentation.
