What are surveys?

With the help of surveys, speakers can poll the participants live during the session or take votes.

Survey Examples

Documentation for Participants and Speakers

You are in the documentation of the ORGANIZER features in the backstage, accordingly the participant and speaker functions are not documented here.

  • The Survey Feature documentation for Participants can be found here.
  • The Survey Feature documentation for Speakers can be found here.

Survey Configuration

In the settings, you as the organizer have the option of configuring surveys for your events and individual breakout sessions.

In Backstage, click on "Edit Event" and select "Main session settings" in the navigation bar that opens.

Here you configure the lobby area of the session, i.e. session type and interaction options.

Main Session Settings


Under the item "Interaction", you can configure the surveys. 

Enable Surveys

By ticking "Survey active", you enable surveys in the lobby area of your event and then have further setting options in the backstage.

If you disable the surveys in the backstage, these further settings remain hidden.

Configuring Surveys in (breakout) sessions

Agenda & sessions

To enable surveys in a session, click on the "pencil icon" (edit) next to the session.

Edit sessions

This opens the "Edit session" window. In the session you can choose the session type, the permissions for participants and the interaction settings for this respective session can be set here again individually.
