Quick Polls


Polling questions are a great way to keep your Readers engaged during your live event and CoveritLive makes it quick and easy to use.

 



About Polls

When a Poll is published it immediately appears in a pop-up window (within the Viewer Window) for all your Readers to see. A Reader can choose to immediately vote in the Poll, or close the pop-up and vote later. Poll results are displayed in the Notification Center, so that they appear front-and-center for your Readers without interrupting your event commentary.

  • You can have an unlimited number of polls running at one time. The results will change in real time as more Readers provide their answers.
  • Readers joining the live event while in progress will be given the chance to vote as long as the poll is still active. The poll will run and its results will be displayed until the Writer ends the poll or hides the results.
  • Once a poll is ended the results are finalized and the Poll will be closed to new votes. (Ended polls cannot be "un-ended"). You are not required to end a Poll before ending your event. If you end an event all published Polls will automatically be ended and finalized, and the final results will display in the event Replay.
  • Note: Currently CoveritLive does not display the number of people who voted in a poll.
