Live Q&A Feed

Question and Answer, or Q&A, is a critical piece of audience engagement for any event or presentation. It is also one-half of the 2-way conversation that is engagement (the other being polling). With the live 2Shoes Q&A feed, attendees can ask questions and vote for the best question so that it is addressed first. When it comes time for questions at the end of each presentation, the presenter or moderator will get a curated list of the most important questions and not just the question from the first person in line at the microphone or the loudest person in the room.

How to set up Live Questions and Answers:

If you have not already created an account on the 2Shoes platform that would be the first step to take. Go to to create your free account today!

After creating your account you will need to create an event or session to hold your event. You can follow the Getting Started Guide here.

From the attendee side of the app, accessed by using the event code or using the TinyURL provided, attendees can click into the session and ask questions in the text box. The attendee can also include their name for a more personal interaction and tag a presenter for a more direct question They can use the red up-vote arrow next to each question to indicate which questions they would like to see addressed first.

You can control each session individually from the Admin panel in the 2Shoes application, by clicking “Manager” to enter the event and “Manage” again to enter the session.

Online: If the Session is “Online” then it will be visible to attendees. Online is the default selection for the app.

Disable Questions:
This will make Q&A disabled and you attendees will not be able to ask questions until they are enabled again. By default, Q&A is enabled. By clikcing the toggle you will disable the questions

Create Tiny URL: For direct access to an Event or Session you can create and Tiny URL and share that with your attendees. Tint URLs save time and increase the chance your users will access the Event regularly.

Viewing Results

You can view and download your results by going to the Event or Session where you want to view the results and click “Manage”. The Event Results will be at the top of the page.

Downloading Results

To download your results, click the “Results” menu item on the left side of the screen. This will open a page for you to select your event and session. When you select the Event, the data will automatically update with all the results for that event. If you want to see all of the questions in all of the session that can be accessed here by clicking the “Detail >” button beside “Questions”. A screen will open to the right and show your results, similar to viewing results above.

You can now embed the the Question portal and Answer feed directly into your website. See our Embed and API page for more information on that feature.

Best Practice: During the event or session, make sure attendees know the event URL and how to ask and vote on questions. It is usually good to have a slide detailing the use of the app or send our an introductory email before the event begins detailing the app
