By default, the Presentation View will automatically follow along with your Trivia Game displaying each question and then each view that you enable (e.g. Show Live Answer Results (A), Show Correct Answer (C), and Show Rankings Leaderboard (R)). This is so your crowd can follow along on the displayed Presentation View along with playing on their mobile devices using the Participant View.
In some use cases, you may want to display only a Trivia Game's real-time Rankings Leaderboard on the Presentation View but not have the Presentation View follow along question-by-question and view-by-view. Examples of this use-case are:
- Displaying the Rankings Leaderboard full-time on a monitor at a tradeshow booth so your current and past players can revisit and view the current rankings
- Having a large Rankings Leaderboard projected full-time as the main display while your players follow the questions, answer results, and correct answers on their mobile devices (i.e. instead of having the Presentation View act as a reference in addition to their mobile devices, it can only display the rankings)
- Having multiple Presentation View windows open with one following the Trivia Game, one displaying the Individual Rankings full-time, one displaying the Team Rankings full-time, and perhaps even one displaying the Multi-Game Rankings for several trivia games (e.g. the week-long overall rankings).
With the settings below, you can create any type of Presentation View configuration.
How To Enable Rankings-Only on the Presentation View
You can easily set your Presentation View to only show the Rankings Leaderboard of your Trivia Game full-time. You simply need to tell the Presentation View to no longer sync with your Trivia Game. After telling it to not sync, you can enable any view you wish on the Presentation View and it will remain on that view while still updating in real-time with your Trivia Game's progress.
To do this, complete the following steps:
Presentation View button under the Crowd Views
Open a Presentation View window by clicking on the large purple Presentation View button from the Experience Dashboard.
On the opened Presentation View window, click the lower-right-hand corner button with the gear icon on it. This opens the configuration menu of the Presentation View.
Presentation View with Sync Presentation View enabled
On the View Settings panel, disable Sync Presentation View. Your Presentation View will now no longer follow along with your Trivia Game's active question and enabled views from the Experience Dashboard. Any updates made from the Experience Dashboard will not affect the Presentation View. Only updates made using the configuration menu will update the Presentation View.
Presentation View with Sync Presentation View disabled
Click on the configuration menu's gear button again in the lower-right-hand corner of the Presentation View, and enable Show Rankings (R). You can also just type the "R" key on the keyboard as a shortcut to enable/disable the Rankings Leaderboard view.
Presentation View displays Rankings Leaderboard
That's it! Your Presentation View will now remain on the Rankings Leaderboard while still continuing to update in real-time as players answer questions.
Opening Multiple Presentation View Windows for Multiple Displays
You are free to open as many Presentation View windows as you need. By default, they will all display the exact same content which is to follow along with your Experience (e.g. Trivia Game) question by question and view by view (e.g. Live Answers, Correct Answer, Question Notes, Rankings Leaderboard).
The above settings let you easily configure one (or more) Presentation View window(s) following along with your Trivia Game while having one (or more) Presentation View window(s) showing the Rankings Leaderboard full-time. You may also show any other view you like full-time as well. Such as leaving the Presentation View on the same question the entire time. Or having one Presentation View displaying the individual rankings and one Presentation View displaying the team rankings (and even one displaying the cumulative multi-game rankings as well). The configuration is up to you! Simply turn off Sync Presentation View and enable the view you'd like that Presentation View window to display.
