New Features: Live polling and Q&A Session tools

New Features - Noodle Live event app - Live Poll and Q&A

We want events to be interesting and easy, like everyone I guess, so we’ll never stop improving our apps and we’re always open to suggestions.


You wanted live polling, Q&A session support and ‘fastest finger first’ functionality. So, with a click of our fingers, a poof of smoke and just a pinch of some very dedicated and highly intelligent developers, we’ve conjured them up for you. Aren’t we lovely!


In January we launched a whole new suite of ‘session tools’, which make speaker sessions more interactive and thus more enjoyable to be a part of. Attendees can now use their event app to ask questions, answer questions and provide real-time feedback and polling – making your app so much more than just a digital version of the event programme.

Live Polling

Our live polling feature means speakers can now throw a question to the floor for delegates and visitors to answer via the app, results are fed back straight back in real time. Questions can be true/false style or multiple choice with similar options to that of an online questionnaire.


Speakers could use this function for a quick temperature check, gauge opinion in the room on a specific topic or even direct the course of a session based on responses, choose your own adventure style – which has HUGE potential.


Remember 90s TV ‘choose your own adventure’ game Knightmare? “Simon, sidestep to your left…”


Speaker Q&A

With our speaker Q&A functionality, we provide a separate iPad app for speaker chairs to use. Delegates/visitors submit questions via their own app, which can then be reviewed by the speaker chair.

Having this function on the app saves someone running around with a microphone – the speaker can quickly and easily read out the questions, with confirmed questions displayed in the app and, if required, displayed on a screen.


The feature is better than an unmoderated Twitter wall as it gives you more control over what content is being displayed for your visitors.


Again, there is a lot of potential for creativity with this functionality, e.g. speakers could have delegates play fun ‘fastest finger first’ style games.

Importantly, using the app for more interactive sessions means people are more likely to use it for other purposes too – making your app an event essential.
