It's easy for speakers to manage their own Q&A session by themselves. This is more common in situations where the sessions are more community-driven, or self-run, and there are limited manpower available. The speaker will typically be on stage with their laptop directly connected to the projector screen.
Watch this 30 second video to understand how this works:
Setting up the Projector Panel
From your Workspace, open the Projector Panel, then select the Q&A session. Using Controls, set the Projector Panel to full screen. That's it!
You can click on the Fullscreen button to enter or exit fullscreen mode for your web browser.
When it's time to answer a question, click on the question in the Projector Panel Q&A session. This will "Active" the question and make it appear enlarged on the projector. On the Audience Web App, the question will also be promoted to the top of the list.
When the question has been answered, click on the "Mark Answered" button. This will remove the answered question from the Projector Panel, but the question will remain on the Audience Web App.
Using the Moderator Panel or Admin Panel
Using the mouse and clicking around on stage in full view of the attendees may not be ideal for some events. That's why we have the Moderator Panel and Admin Panel that allows speakers, moderators or people in the backstage to do all the above remotely without touching the Projector Panel.
The buttons, "Comments" and "Mark Answered" options that appear when a question is "Active" or enlarged on the Projector Panel is triggered by the clicking of a question in the Projector Panel. For the remainder of the session, these buttons will continue to appear on screen even if someone uses the Moderator Panel or Admin Panel. This behaviour is only reset once the web browser is reloaded, or when the Projector Panel is changed to another session.
