Click on the 30 in the center of the Square timer.

Response Counter

This Response Counter will display on screen the amount of received responses.

During the Slide Show, the response counter displays the number of responses. For example, if there are 32 participants in the participant list, the response counter displays “0 of 32.” It continues to count as the responses are received and closes polling when the 32nd response is received.

In this image it shows "19" of "19" people have responded.

New-Object-Icon

  

This table will highlight when individual handsets have responded with the colour of the number box changing upon that particular handset registering its response.

There are 3 types of grid available.

 

 Response Grids

  • Table- The table grid displays numbered boxes that represent each participant in the participant list. If polling with an auto list, the number of boxes displayed is determined by the number of participants responding.
  • Response - The response grid displays the participant name by default. As the participants respond, the corresponding box will change color. If polling with an auto list, it is recommended to change the response grid text to Device ID Only in the preferences. As the participants respond a Device ID will appear in the box.
  • Non-Response- The non-response grid displays the participant name by default. As the participants respond, the corresponding box is removed. If polling with an auto list it is recommended to change the response grid text to Device ID Only in the preferences.

While polling is open, hold the mouse over the grid to access the grid controls.
