Getting started! ✨
Resources are add-ons to the chat box that allow you to engage your Attendees in powerful ways.
Here's a quick summary of the resources we currently offer:
Poll: Ask a multiple-choice question to your Attendees and survey their answers.
Handout: Share a file directly with your Attendees.
Featured Action: Share a Call-to-Action link with your Attendees.
While they're shared during a session from the chat box, we allow you to add them directly from the event options prior to the session.
Once they're added, they'll be available for you to share from the chat box for each session in that event.
Getting them added! 🌟
To start, you'll want to hop into the Additional Options by clicking Edit on your event.
From there, you'll find the Materials & Resources card where you can add new resources and manage existing ones.
Add a Poll
The first type of resource you can add are polls.
To add a poll, select the Add A Resource option.
Select Poll for the type of resource.
You'll be prompted to create a poll question, then add a few answer options.
You can add additional options by selecting Add Another Option or remove them, as long as you have a minimum two available.
You can also choose to share the results with the Attendees which will show the poll results to any Attendees after they've selected an answer.
Submit your changes and you'll find it appears in your list of resources.

Then you'll want to upload your file using the file upload box available. We allow you to share any type of file up to 500 MB in size (with the exception of .exe files types).
It'll take some time for the file to upload, depending on the size of the file itself.
Once it's completed uploading, submit your changes!
