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 can be created during a session from the chat box, we also allow you to create and 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.
