Radar Charts

Problem: You want to compare different speakers on 3 or more metrics

Solution: Use our new Radar Charts with Grid Polls

Our grid (or multi-rate) polls allow you to rate something on several different metrics. This can be good for performance reviews among other use cases.

All qualities are rated on the same scale, and you can add text labels for it. In order to rate multiple people, you’ll want to duplicate the grid chart for each person so the settings match.

We’ve added a new Broadcast view type for our grid polls, the radar chart. Select “Launch Radar” from the broadcast menu.

This will launch a Radar chart, also sometimes known as a spider chart. There are two modes it can be in. One is to compare the median and average values for a single poll.

The other mode is to compare 2 grid polls with each other.

You can select the polls by clicking the gear in the upper left corner.

To go back to showing a single poll, click “(select another grid poll to compare)” in the second drop-down. 

Numeric Poll Data

Problem: You’re asking attendees to rate how much they’re willing to spend on headphones. The average is important, but you want more detail.

Solution: Use Minimum and Maximum detail to learn more.

Each attendee submits their own answer to the question and are then presented with the results. If this attendee only saw that the average was $127.10, then they might think their $25 value is too low and change it. But, seeing that some people are choosing $15 while others are choosing $600, they have a better idea of what everyone else is doing.

As the admin, you will be able to see even more detail in the Presenter view. When you expand the poll, you’ll be able to see a feed of the answers. At the bottom, you’ll see the average, the lowest answer submitted and the highest answer submitted. 

In this example, the minimum answer is $15, the maximum is $600, and the average is $127.1. Since the average is so much closer to the minimum, that’s a hint to look at the feed for more details.

Note that the minimum and maximum values will not be shown in the Broadcast view.

Raffle data export

Problem: You’ve used raffles to gather emails from your audience and now you want to send them all a message.

Solution: Export the raffle data in a CSV format so you can use it in your favorite marketing email tool.

When you raffle between anyone who submits an email, you usually want to use the non-winning participants’ emails for something else. The new Export Participants CSV will give you the data for every participant in every raffle.

Each raffle has an ID, so the participants in that raffle all have the same ID in the first column. The winners name and email are provided in the last two columns. The unique user ID is the ID for the participant (not the winner).

Once someone has won a prize, you want to follow up with them afterwards to give them the prize. The raffle Results CSV will give you a list of everyone’s name and email address.  

The first column is the raffle ID, which is also used in the Raffle Participants export. The type of raffle refers to what you selected from the drop-down for the raffle. The Date is the time when the raffle was run, while you can see the number of people eligible for that raffle in the Participant column. 

The winner’s name and email address are in the final columns. If the winner chooses to not provide their information, that will show up as “(not provided)”. 

Tip: Remember to turn on Collect Winner Info in anonymous meetings so the winner can submit their name and email.


Using custom data in links

Problem: Attendees need to go to a link based on their job title or department.

Solution: Use Personalized Data inside of link markup so attendees only see the link for their department.

Personalized data is a great way to incorporate what you already know about your audience into their MeetingPulse experience. You can upload their job title, department, or any custom field you want. You can reference this information through markup in Pages, Schedule, Welcome message and more. For example: 

Welcome to MeetingPulse, [customData=firstName|friend]!

We're glad to have someone from our [customData=dept] team with us.

Generates this welcome message:

New in this release, you can combine the personalized data markup with the link markup. If you want to provide a link to go to a meeting named for Susan’s department, you would use: 

[Your team]([customData=dept]) 

Changes to Invite Attendees

Problem: You want to invite attendees to your meeting with custom data

Solution: Use the updated Invite Attendees.

You can use Invite Attendees to upload custom data, generate individual passcodes and even email your audience. Start by downloading a template linked in the instruction text. 

In that template add the emails, first and last names for all your attendees. Then upload the CSV using the green Upload button. 

You can use the View tab to see the list of names, emails and automatically generated codes. Make sure Require unique access codes is enabled.

To add the custom attendee data, switch to the Attendee data tab. Click “Download a CSV template”. 

This will give you a CSV with the attendee codes and user IDs. 

Add columns for each custom data field you want to give attendees. The column name should not have any spaces or slashes. Enter the data for each attendee. When your file is ready, click on “Upload CSV with attendee data” and upload your file.

Finally, you can invite your attendees through our email tool. This will give them the unique code they need to log into the system.

Closing polls does not affect Broadcast View

Problem: The broadcast view switched back to a closed poll when you wanted it to show the poll you just ran.

Solution: The broadcast view now stays on the same poll when you close another.

If you have the broadcast view open, then running a poll will change the broadcast view to that poll. If you want to switch polls at any time, you can swipe or use arrow keys.
