There's no need to worry about unwanted questions or an overflow of funny comments showing up on screen; use Q&A moderation to filter out those questions and control the experience.
If you’re on a Pro, Teams or Conference account, you can select this option either in the Configure panel or directly on your Q&A slide. Use the link to approve or dismiss incoming questions before the audience get to upvote their favorites!
Directly on your Q&A slide
For the brave: Moderate your own session
Our moderation feature is designed to be so easy to use that you can moderate your own session while you’re on stage. To ensure a smooth experience, these are our recommendations:
- Try to only dismiss truly irrelevant questions, you save time by letting the audience do the prioritization with upvotes
- If you have activated Q&A for your whole presentation, you can use the time when the participants are voting on a question to moderate incoming questions during the presentation. This saves you from needing to moderate all the questions at the end
- You can also try and adapt your presentation for self-moderation by letting the audience spend time thinking about subjects or discussing something in smaller groups, and use that time to moderate!
Let someone else moderate your session
Simply send the link to someone else to let them filter out the questions before they show up on your screen for everyone to see. Make sure to have everything prepared and tried out the function with your moderator beforehand. Also consider preparing your moderator for certain subjects you’d like to avoid so they can filter them out.
Pro tip: Select which questions to show "in full screen"
In the moderator view, you can also select which question should be highlighted in the presentation and thereby choose which questions to address. Mark it as answered when you’re done!
