  This article is for our new Experience Manager.

If you are an EventMobi customer and using your account is using our Classic Content Manager. If this is the case, please visit

atYou can display questions and their responses to your audience live using the live Results page for any question. This applies to session polls, event surveys and the Ask a Question feature; live results are not available for questions created under the Session Feedback Survey type.

You can also time and moderate your audience interactions. Hide questions until you're ready to reveal them or filter live results for relevance and propriety.

Live Polls
1. Access your Sessions Library and select the session containing your live poll.

2. Select the Live Poll tab within your session. 

3. Click on the Action option to choose Present from the menu that appears. 




Ask a Question
Ask a Question lets you collect questions and comments from your attendees that you can direct to your speaker or display on a large screen. The questions will also appear in the Ask a Question forum for any session, and you can moderate the questions in both the live Results page and on the app.

1. Access your Sessions Library and click on the relevant session.

2. Select the Ask a Question tab within your session. 

3. Choose the Present option to display the questions in order of the number of upvotes they have received.

2. Select the Hide option for any questions you do not wish to display on your results page, or the app.

2. Click on the Actions button applicable to the question you would like to display results for.

Using Live Results Onsite
Live results pages will update in realtime as people are submitting their answers. The URL for each results page is all you need to give your presenter or A/V team to allow them to display the results live; they do not need access to the Content Manager. 

NOTE: Internet Explorer does not support realtime updates on the live Results page. We recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. We also recommend that you run through your live polls before the session starts to make sure that everything is set up properly, and to ensure that your presenter has set up the transitions between the poll and other session elements correctly.

Live polls that include more than 6 options to select from will find "Other Options" included on the live results screen. This behavior is intended and acts in optimizing the clarity of the display. This option will include the totals for any other options grouped together, with the first 6 options displayed (based on the order in which they are shown on the form). 

Customize the Results Page Colors
1. Click on the question you wish to edit the results page for, and select the 
Customize Option Colors checkbox.

2. Pick a color, or enter a hex code for each poll question option. 

3. Check the Customize Results Page Colors checkbox to update the background and text colors as well.

Display the Results Page Onsite
1. Copy the URL from the Results page that pops up and provide it to your presenter or A/V team.

2. Select the Live icon at the bottom left hand corner to make the results page fullscreen. 

Moderate Open Text Results
Click on the Action option for your question, and select Moderate from the menu that appears. 

2. Copy the URL from the Moderate page that pops up and provide this to your moderator.

3. Hide or Show responses from view as needed. 

Clear Test Results
1. Access the library associated to your survey type. Live polls and Ask a Question will be accessed from Sessions, while Event Survey will be accessed from Surveys

2. Click into the relevant session or survey. Select Live Poll or Ask a Question if you have tested one of these survey types. 

3. Select the Actions button for each question you completed testing for, and choose the Clear Responses option in the menu.  

Hide, Close, and Disable Surveys
You may want to consider hiding or closing a poll to ensure that your sessions not only stay on track, but that you are also receiving your responses when they are most relevant.
