Crowdpurr Polls have a variety of advanced settings that can be found under the "Poll Settings" tab on the "Poll Setup Panel" on the Experience Dashboard. Each of these settings is explained below.
Poll Name & Description
This area lets you update the name and description of your Poll. The name of your Poll is shown on both the Projector View and the mobile-client. The description is for your internal use only and is not shown anywhere in Crowdpurr.
To edit the name and description, simply click on the fields, update the text(s), and press the "Save" button (or press the Enter key on your keyboard).
If you're a Classroom Plan subscriber or higher, one of Crowdpurr's Premium Features is uploading your own custom logo that replaces the default Crowdpurr logo throughout the entire Crowdpurr app!

The following settings affect different aspects of your crowd's experience.
Allow Multiple Sign-Ins
Normally a mobile-device, once logged into a Crowdpurr Experience, is remembered by Crowdpurr. Even if the mobile-device's browser is refreshed, the device gets turned off and on, the device is signed off for hours, etc., Crowdpurr will still remember the device and whether or not a vote has been cast for each question. This prevents Poll participants from refreshing their browser and attempting to vote more than once per question.
If you have the below setting "Allow Unlimited Voting?" turned off, Crowdpurr will not allow a device to vote again. It remembers the device and tells the user that the device has already been used to vote.
If you turn on "Allow Multiple Sign-Ins", upon a browser refresh, Crowdpurr will ask if the user wants to continue as the same voter (and thus not be allowed to vote again) or create a new voter (and thus be allowed to cast another vote).
|With Allow Multiple Sign-Ons Enabled||With Allow Multiple Sign-Ons Disabled|
Upon refreshing browser, Crowdpurr asks if user wants to create a new sign-on.
Upon refreshing browser, Crowdpurr does not allow a new sign-on and shows previous vote(s) that were cast.
This setting is useful when you have a Poll where participants are sharing a device(s), like a community iPad(s) at the front of an auditorium or in a conference booth for example. If you don't have this setting turned on, each iPad would only be allowed to cast one vote if the below "Allow Unlimited Voting?" were disabled. With this setting turned on, after each voter uses the iPad to vote, the browser can be refreshed by event coordinators, and be ready to go for the next user.
Set Crowd Language
This sets the language for all labels and instructions that are read by your crowd including the Projector View and mobile-client. So if your crowd is French-speaking, you can set the mobile-client and Projector View (the crowd-facing parts of Crowdpurr) to display all their labels and instructions in French.

The following settings affect voting parameters of your Poll.
Allow Unlimited Voting
This setting simply allows each participant in your crowd to vote an unlimited amount of times on each question in your Poll.
This is useful if you want a lot of participation and activity on your Projector View as Crowdpurr will process votes as fast as your crowd can click the buttons on the mobile-client. If you have this setting turned on then the above "Allow Multiple Sign-Ons?" is inconsequential because participants do not need to refresh to cast multiple votes. This setting allows unlimited voting.
If you're conducting a serious Poll and only want each participant to vote once per question, make sure to turn off "Allow Unlimited Voting?" and also turn off "Allow Multiple Sign-Ons?"
The following settings affect the overall Results Summary that is shown to each voter on their mobile-device after they have answered every question in your Poll.
Show Overall Results To Voter After Poll
This setting will show a Results Summary to each voter after they've answered all Poll questions or the Poll is ended by the host. The Results Summary lists all the questions, answers, and how the overall crowd voted on each question. If you want to reveal your Poll's results to the crowd, turn on this setting. If you have the below "Show Personal Results to Voter After Poll" turned off, the Results Summary will only show overall crowd results and not that voter's personal votes.
Show Personal Results to Voter After Poll
This setting will show a Results Summary to each voter after they've answered all Poll questions or the Poll is ended by the host. The Results Summary lists all the questions, answers, and how that voter voted on each question. If you have the above "Show Overall Results To Voter After Poll" setting turned off, the Results Summary will only show personal results, not overall results.
|Results Summary Showing Overall Crowd Results||Results Summary Showing Only Personal Results|
Experience Playback Mode
This setting affects how your Poll's questions are delivered to your crowd. There are three options:
- Host Controlled - This setting only shows one question at a time to your crowd. It requires you, as the host, to update the Active Question in order to advance your Poll to the next question. You must also manually toggle "Show Live Answer Results" if you want to dynamically show and hide the live vote results. This allows you to have the most amount of control over the pace of your Poll.
- Fully Automatic - This setting only shows one question at a time to your crowd. Unlike Host Controlled, this setting automatically updates the question based on a timer interval that you set. It can also automatically show Live Vote Results and loop your Poll after it reaches the last question.
- Crowd Controlled - This setting shows all of your questions to the crowd at once. Each participant can navigate and vote on each question at their own pace.
If your Poll only has one question, you can only use Host Controlled mode. To learn more about how these settings work, check out the article Experience Playback Modes Explained.
Profanity & Review Settings
These settings apply to questions in your Poll that have the text answer question-type. These questions will have submitted answers that are typed in by your crowd (versus simply choosing pre-written multiple choice answers).
Normally, when a text answer is submitted, it is immediately shown on the Projector View to your crowd. You can turn on these settings if you want to review and/or edit your crowd's text answers for profanity before they are shown to your crowd on the Projector View.
Enable Vote Review
Turning on this setting will require you, as the host, to review each text answer before it is counted as a vote. If you reject it, it will not be counted. If you approve it, it will be counted and shown on the Projector View. You can also edit the answer and then approve it.
Enable Profanity Filtering
Another option is to simply filter any words flagged by Crowdpurr as profanity in submitted text answers . Crowdpurr has an intelligent algorithm to identify profanity words, phrases, and even numeral characters. If detected, Crowdpurr can do one of the following:
- Auto-Filter - Crowdpurr will automatically sanitize any text answer words flagged as profanity with a series of ****** characters.
- Auto-Reject - Crowdpurr will automatically reject any text answers that contain words flagged as profanity on the mobile-client and ask the voter to rephrase.
To learn more on how Profanity & Review Settings work, check out the article Reviewing Text Answers For Profanity Before Displaying.
Resetting your Poll will remove all crowd responses and set your Poll back to the "Ready" state. This is useful if you had previously tested or did a "dry run" of your Poll. Resetting your Poll using this button is the same as using the reset button in the Control Center and clicking the "Clear Crowd Responses" button.
To reset your Poll, simply click on the red "Reset" button.
