Using the Projector Panel



What is the Projector Panel

Projector Panel page

The Projector Panel displays responses gathered during interactive Q&A and Poll sessions. Admins can navigate between sessions and select from a variety of display options to adapt to your presentation needs. 

The Projector Panel requires an Internet connection. For best performance and reliability, we recommend using Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

Configure the Projector Panel Display on More settings > Appearance

By default, the Projector Panel displays with the sidebar open to encourage participation. If this does not suit your event, head over to Projector Panel Display to customise a suitable configuration. 

The entire Sidebar can be hidden or displayed. Individual elements within the sidebar like QR code, event passcode, and sponsor logo, can be independently toggled. Two types of logos are available to be added to the sidebar: Logo branding and Sponsor logos. With Logo branding, event organisers are able to place their organisation or event logo on the Projector Panel and the Audience Web App. Additionally, for some events, organisers may want to display logos of sponsors, partners, and collaborators, and this can be done through Sponsor logos. 

In the Header, Session title can be toggled for greater focus. Some users find it especially useful for cases where the session question might overlap with the session title. 

In Session Details, you can choose to toggle between showing or hiding the number of participants and the number of votes independently.


Projector Panel for Q&A and Open-ended Poll sessions

When open-ended text sessions such as Q&A and Open-ended Poll sessions are selected, the Projector Panel displays a live feed of questions submitted by attendees. Questions are displayed as a list view, and sorted by the number of votes. As attendees vote on questions, the questions are automatically reordered by votes.

Q&A session in Projector Panel

When a question is being addressed by the speaker, it is possible to focus audience attention by clicking on the question to make it ‘Active’. This expands the question on the Projector Panel. 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. Alternatively, a team member can use the Moderator or Admin Panel to remotely control the active question on the Projector Panel.

Projector Panel for Poll with options sessions

When a Poll question is selected, the Projector Panel displays the results of responses collated. Poll results can be displayed in either vertical or horizontal bar charts or pie charts. As attendees vote on the poll question, the results will update in real-time.

Navigating Projector Panel with Controls 

A host of configuration options for the Projector Panel are available in the Control bar. To activate it, make sure you've selected a session to display, then move your cursor near the bottom of the Projector Panel. You'll see Controls appear automatically. The Control bar and your cursor also now auto-hides when there's a couple seconds of inactivity. No more unsightly cursors on the projector screen!

You can click on the Fullscreen button to enter or exit fullscreen mode for your web browser.

Clicking on Sessions in Controls will present the available sessions in your event. Simply select the session you wish to project. Once the session has loaded, Controls will update with the relevant options available based on this interactive session type.

Display/Chart Type
Depending on the session type selected, different display options are available. Select from a variety of display options to adapt to your presentation needs. 

Depending on the session type selected, different screens will be available. Shortcuts to quickly switch between different screens are also denoted beside each option for easy reference. 

A commonly used screen is Sign-in instructions, which helps you inform attendees on how to access your event. It will also be the default display when there are no responses for a session, to encourage participation.
