Activation is a very important concept for presenters. When you activate an activity that allows web responses, the system will publish the activity to your PollEv.com response page (i.e. PollEv.com/your-username) so participants can respond. Activating a multiple choice or open ended activity with text messaging enabled readies the activity to accept text message responses.
Note: A presenter can only have one activated activity at a time. This is how the presenter specifies which activity is accepting responses at that moment in time.
Activating an activity slide
The easiest way to activate an activity is by displaying it in Present mode. You can read more in the section about presenting from the web.
You can also click the Activate button, which will not enter full screen but will stay on the slide.
Surveys can also be activated using the Present or Activate buttons.
Note: You can deactivate the activity by clicking the Activate button. Exiting out of Present mode will automatically deactivate the activity.
Activating an activity from your Activities page
To activate an activity from the Activities page, click the Activate icon located to the right side of the activity's title bar. You will see the icon turn green on your Activities page.
