You can set a timer on an activity to limit the time participants have to respond. The timer will only appear on the poll chart if it is set, or if you hover your mouse over the bottom left corner of the poll chart.
To set the timer:
- Hover over the bottom left corner of a poll
- 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.
If you are presenting from the web in fullscreen mode, you can use hotkeys to control the timer on your poll. Press 'R' on your keyboard to stop and reset the timer. Press 'T' to restart the timer.
