You're now ready to start your first Poll. When you first create a Poll it is in the "Ready" state. While in the "Ready" state, your crowd will not be allowed to interact with your Poll. If your audience visits your Poll on their mobile device in this state, they will be shown a message that the Poll will begin shortly.
Starting a Poll
To make your Poll "Live" and allow crowd voting the first question, you need to "Start" it. To start a Poll, simply click on the green circular "Play" button under the "Control Center" heading in the upper-left-corner of the Experience Dashboard. After clicking the "Play" button your Poll is now in the "Live" state.
Your Poll will now display the current "Active Question" to your audience if they are currently logged into your Poll on their mobile device (more on this later). The play button now turns into a pause button if you need to pause your Poll.
Pausing a Poll
During your live event and Poll, there may be times when you want to pause the voting. Pausing your Poll will temporarily stop your crowd from voting on questions and will show the crowd a "Poll Paused, Will Resume Shortly" message on their mobile devices. To pause a Poll, simply click on the gray circular "Pause" button under the "Control Center". To unpause a Poll and resume play, simply click the button again which has now turned into the "Play" button to indicate that this will resume your Poll.
Now that you know how to Start and Pause your Poll, you're ready for the next step Testing the Poll's Mobile Client.
