The audience display gives you the option to show Q&A messages, polls and results on a main display screen to share with your audience.
NOTE: Have you seen our new Presentation View - BETA? Available on 20th June 2018, we are trialling an improvement and eventually a replacement for the audience display. Why not check it out and see what you think.
You can launch an audience display from the menu on the left of the dashboard.
When you press the audience display button this will launch a new browser tab with a few simple options to tailor how you want your display to work.
Choose your messages
Here you can select which of the message queues in the dashboard you would like to display.
For an audience the typical one would be 'Published'
Top Tip: You might want to have another person reviewing messages that have not been published to your audience so here you can set up a different display for them to see by selecting the 'Needs Review' or 'Reviewed' message queue.
Order message by
Here you can choose what order you would like the messages to be displayed in. The options are for the 'Newest' messages to be displayed at the top, the 'Oldest' messages to be at the top or the 'Most Liked' messages to appear at the top.
You might want to restrict what messages are shown even further than the message queue that they appear in. Here you can choose to filter messages to only display one that have been tagged as a 'Favorite' in the dashboard.
Choose your options
The 'Include Polls' option means that if you ask a live poll this will automatically interrupt your message display with the poll when it is asked and the results are shown.
If you uncheck this box then live polls will not be shown on the display at all.
The 'Make Private' option is an extra security measure in case you want make sure the display can't be viewed by people without first entering a private key which you can specify yourself.
Sharing the display with other people
If you want to see the display on another computer or share the display with someone else it's easy.
The audience display is just a simple webpage so once you have launched your display with the 'Project' button you can copy the URL and send it to anyone else to open on their device.
If you have chosen to make your display private this is when the key you have set will need to be entered in order to view it.
