Moderating from the mobile app

Moderation is a powerful tool. It allows you to ask open ended questions, brainstorm, etc. without having to worry about anything embarrassing or inappropriate showing up on screen. The Poll Everywhere mobile app untethers you from your computer allowing you to control interaction from your mobile device.

Helpful tip: Moderation needs to be enabled on an activity to use the feature on the mobile app.

Moderate with the mobile app

On your mobile device, open the activity you’d like to moderate (check out the My activities on mobile article for how to navigate to your activities if you’re unsure). If an activity has moderation enabled you’ll see a gavel icon in the toolbar at the top. The icon will be highlighted green while in moderation mode.
