Poll questions

Can I make the poll question appear larger in the 3D environment when voting?

The “Polls” menu

The “Polls” menu shows a list of your active polls. Each line has three parts.

  1. The poll’s ID (used in Actions)
  2. The poll’s question
  3. The control menu
  1. More… opens a section with the poll’s details, and some additional controls
  2. Request vote shows the poll to everybody in the same 3D environment
  3. Open/Close is used to open and close the poll

Within the “More…” section, each poll shows:

  1. Whether it is open (accepting new votes) or closed
  2. Its options, alongside the votes for each
  3. Buttons to create a mediaboard that allows voting, or to display the results

Accessing the menu

To access polls, open the side menu (1), then click on the Polls button (2)

Creating a poll

To create a poll, open the Polls menu and click on the green New poll button

You will be brought to the creation form.

  1. The question is the “title” of your poll
  2. The options are the choices available to users; you can add more by clicking on the blue + icon at the bottom left
  3. When you have completed writing the poll, save it by clicking on the green Create button. You can close the tab afterward.

Back in the 3D environment, click on the blue Refresh list button and the newly-created poll will be added to the list.

Voting

When a poll has been created, voting can take place in a number of ways, though the most effective one depends on the type of experience or conference the poll is in.

Requesting a vote

By requesting a vote, all users currently connected that have not yet voted in the poll will be shown the choice, and they can either submit their preferred choice or click on Exit to not vote.

With a mediaboard

To display poll results as a chart in the 3D environment:

  1. Open the Polls menu
  2. Click on the More… button of the poll you’re interested in
  3. Click on Create voting mediaboard

When interacting with the mediaboard, users that have not voted yet will be shown the poll’s options

With an action

It’s also possible to ask for the user to vote by clicking on any object. You can find more details on the Actions API reference, specifically the displayPoll action.

Displaying poll results

Poll results can be displayed in a number of ways.

With a mediaboard

To display poll results as a chart in the 3D environment:

  1. Open the Polls menu
  2. Click on the More… button of the poll you’re interested in
  3. Click on Create results mediaboard
  4. Select the type of chart
  5. Click OK

A mediaboard will be added to the space. It will update when loading/reloading the space, or when clicked on.

With an action

It’s also possible to display poll results with an action. Details can be found in the Actions API reference, specifically in the displayPollResults section.

Poll questions

Can I make the poll question appear larger in the 3D environment when voting?

Always consider how changes in font size (or question length) might impact your mobile users

To make the question text larger, simply wrap your question in <big></big> tags.

For example:

<big>Who is fastest?</big>
