Before we run your Poll, we'll open up the Mobile View to see what your crowd will see on their mobile devices and also play along when we test our Poll shortly. You can open up the Mobile View on an actual mobile device (e.g. your mobile phone, your tablet, etc.) or you can open up the mobile client on a web-browser tab on your desktop computer, laptop, or iMac. All devices are supported.
To open the Mobile View, you can do so from one of the following:
From the Experience Dashboard
This is the easiest way to test your Poll while still working in the Experience Dashboard to edit your questions. Simply click on the large blue Mobile View button under the Control Center area of your Experience Dashboard.
This button will open up a test Mobile View browser window on your desktop or laptop computer, which simulates how the Poll will look on smaller mobile devices. You can then have it open along side your Experience Dashboard for testing.
During your actual event, your crowd may also access your Poll using the instructions displayed under the On Your Mobile Device section below.
On Your Mobile Device
Open up your mobile browser (e.g. Safari, Chrome, etc.) on your mobile device (e.g. smartphone, tablet, etc.) and in the URL field, type in crowd.live. You will then be asked to Enter A Code. Simply enter the five-digit Poll Code for your Trivia Game from the Experience Dashboard. In this example, our code is TSKVF as shown on the Experience Dashboard. Please note, your Experience Code will be different. Please see your Experience Dashboard.
Signing Into Your Poll from the Mobile View
Once you have opened the Mobile View, nothing needs to be entered by your participants. By default, your Poll will run anonymously, meaning no identity or Lead Capture information is collected by your Poll. You may elect for a First Name to be required and entered by each participant. You can do so by enabling this lead capture field via the purple Crowd Leads tab on the Experience Dashboard.
For more information on how to collect lead capture from your participants, please have a look at this article Collect Lead Capture Data From Your Participants
When the Mobile View is opened, the displayed notification will inform participants that Voting Will Begin Shortly. All instances of the Mobile View by all participants will be in a holding state until your start your Poll.
Ready To Follow Along and Play
You're now ready to follow along and vote in your Poll using the Mobile View. As you run your Poll, the Mobile View you have opened will update with the Active Question, allow you to answer, and show various Views that you set on the Experience Dashboard.
We're now ready to see how the Projector View works in the next step Launching the Poll Projector View.
