The interactive elements of a Crowdcast event are stacked vertically on the far right side of the event window. You can start using these as soon as you’ve registered for the event.
Here are the ways you can interact starting with the top icon:
Chat is a great place to say hello and introduce yourself before the event goes live. Chat lets you communicate with the host and other attendees before, during, and after an event. If you hover over the comments of others, you can add an emoji reaction. If you hover over your own comments, you’ll also see the option to edit or delete your comment.
The Question & Answer section is located in a tab just below the chat. This is where you can submit any questions or leave a comment on someone else’s question. Once the host has answered the question, you will be able to view it in the answered tab. You can also upvote questions that others have submitted.
Polls are located just below the Q&A section. The event host may add one or multiple polls prior to the event or during a live session.
The People tab is just below the polls. This is where you can see who else is registered for the event and whether they’re currently active in the session. If you don’t see this section, the host may have opted to remove it.
How to Request to Join the Stage
If the host has allowed attendees to request to join the stage, you will see a hand icon at the bottom of the screen. Click this hand to request to join the stage.
Once you’ve requested to join the stage, you might need to allow Crowdcast to access your camera and microphone. You should see a pop-up where you can select Allow.
After granting Crowdcast permission to your camera and mic, a pop-up will appear where you can select your preferred camera and mic input and then save your request to join the stage. From there, the host will need to accept your request.
