Create a Board

How does it work?



Collect ideas from your audience, organize and rank them in a vote.

To create a Board, click “ + ADD A SLIDE ” and select the “Board" activity.



General

Enter the title of your activity and add instructions (optional).



Activity format

Two formats are given to you:
Direct: Every participant sends their ideas directly to the board, visible by all.
Round by round: Participants can prepare their ideas in a notepad (not visible to other participants) before publishing them.



You can enable the color palette and check the color(s) you want to make available. Your participants will be able to enter their ideas, select a color and add it to their idea.
