A Q&A module can be activated in Slidesync. It will allow remote attendees watching the presentation on their browser to ask questions to the speaker via a from on the Attendee View. Just like if they were in the same room.
This feature is available for Premium subscription and above.
When a question is asked by an attendee, it can be displayed immediately to the speaker, or filtered, edited and organized by a moderator.
The speaker can simply answer the questions as part of their presentation, just like they would a question from an attendee in the same room.
Sending questionsThe question submit form on the Attendee View looks like this:
If the option is enabled, attendees can access a tab that shows all previously approved questions:
If a colleague is available to filter, edit and organize incoming questions before sending them to the speaker, make sure the "auto-approve questions" setting is off in the "Basics" page (see first screenshot).
The moderator must be registered in SlideSync with the "moderator" role. See the Event Manager Checklist article for how to manage a team.
Moderators, and of course Event Managers, will have access to the "Questions" tool in the SlideSync backend.
The questions in the "incoming" collumn are fully editable. The moderator can simply click anywhere in the text of the question and start typing, fixing a typo, reformulating an obscure questions, ensuring the best flow for the speaker. Note the ""Enter Question" field at the bottom. It allows the moderator to shortcut the workflow, for example to relay a question for someone else.
Moving a question to the Live column will make it visible on the speaker view. Moving it to Answered will make it disappear.
