Your crowd accesses your Experience through their mobile device. From you crowd's perspective, Crowdpurr is simply a web app. There is no native app to download from any app stores. To participate in your Experience, your crowd simply has to navigate to a URL in their browser. When they do this, they see the mobile-client version of your Experience.
The mobile client simply refers to the version of your Experience that your crowd will see on their mobile devices. This is what your crowd uses to play your Trivia Game or vote in your Poll. You can see and experiment with this ahead of your actual event in order to ensure everything is working as you expected.
Upon displaying the Projector View to your crowd, they can read the bottom URL (uniform resource locator) or hyperlink to access your Experience. Your crowd simply types it into the URL bar of their mobile browser on their device. In the below Projector View, the bottom URL says, "To play, go to crowd.live & enter code: PMBS7"
Entering the Experience Code on the Mobile Client
After your crowd navigates to crowd.live they will be taken to the Crowdpurr mobile-client.
Upon reaching the mobile-client, your crowd must enter your Experience's access code to enter the Experience. They simply click on the input box and type in the code. After entering the code, they will be taken to your Experience.
Additional URL Format
In addition to the above URLs, you can also access your Experience's mobile-client by using the following URL format:
crowdpurr.com/12345 (where "12345" is your Experience's code)
You can quickly test your experience by using this format versus taking the extra step to enter the code in the input field.
Entering Their Name & Using the Experience
If your Experience requires your crowd to enter their name, email, or other information, they will be asked to enter that information (these "lead capture" fields are customizable. See the article at the bottom of this page to learn more).
After entering any lead capture information, your crowd will proceed to your Experience. If you haven't started your Experience, they will see a message informing them that the Experience will begin shortly.
Further Educating Your Crowd On How to Participate
Often times simply displaying the Projector View isn't enough to "inform" your crowd that there is going to be an interactive experience that they can participate in. Many clients use additional methods to alert their crowd including:
- Verbal announcements from the event host on how to participate
- Additional intro slides within Keynote or PowerPoint that have instructions for participating
- Printed placards on tables that display the Experience URL and instructions for participating
- Including information in event emails, handouts, etc. that features the URL and instructions for participating
