You're now ready to start your first Poll.When you first create a Poll it is in the Ready to Start state. While in the Ready to Start state, your crowd will be allowed to sign into your Poll, but they will not be able to start voting until you start your Poll. Once they have signed in, your participants will be shown a message that the Poll will begin shortly.
Starting a Poll
To make your Poll Live and allow crowd-voting on 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 on the Mobile View that you opened earlier in this tutorial and also on any participant Mobile Views who are signed in to your Poll on their mobile device. The Play button now turns into a Pause button if you need to pause your Trivia Game.

Voting on the First Question
If you're playing along in the Mobile View you should be signed in already. Once your start your Poll you should now see the first question ready to be voted on. Go ahead and answer our first question. As soon as you vote, you'll see that the Mobile View updates to show all live answer results for the question automatically by default. This is an option that you can enable or disable later in your Poll. For now, it only shows our single vote.
How Voting Works
When you update the Active Question to a new question each participant may cast a vote on that question until you move on to a new question. By default, a participant may only cast a single vote per question. This keeps voting fair. If you revisit a question, the participant will not be able to vote again if they've already voted.
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.
