You can set a timer on an activity to limit the time participants have to respond. The timer will only appear on the activity chart if it is set, or if you hover your mouse over the top left corner of the chart.
Helpful tip: The countdown timer is not available on Surveys. You may need to convert the Survey to an activity folder in order to add the timer to the individual activities. To learn more, check out Surveys.
To set the timer:
- Hover over the top left corner of an activity
- Click the timer field
- Enter how long you’d like your activity to remain open in minutes and seconds.
- Click the timer icon to start the timer or activate your activity.
The timer will begin to count down when you activate the activity. The timer will turn red as the activity nears its close. When the timer hits zero, the activity will automatically lock. When the activity locks, the audience can still see the activity on your PollEv.com presenter page, but no more responses will be accepted for that activity.
To pause the timer, click the timer icon with the pause symbol. Reset the timer with the reset icon on the left side of the timer field. You can disable the timer by clicking the small X within the icon.
