Blog Post: Vevox Autumn 2020 Updates (Staff)

Vevox have have a number of interesting updates arriving on the 16th November. If you’ve been debating whether to include polling in your Zoom meetings, take a look at some of their new features:

Dashboard

In this latest update you’ll notice that the dashboard area is much cleaner and clearer, but still easy on the eye.  All the usual dashboard functionality remains, they’ve just given things a sleeker look.

Polling

All your polling options are now available to select from a simple drop-down menu. The figure below allso shows that you can now add an to a question. You’ll be able to upload and include an image in your question and participants will be able to see this image on their devices. This question type can be used in so many different scenarios, but there’s more… if you don’t have any images of your own for your questions, we now also have a built-in library of licensed images through Unsplash.

Q & A

When your Q&A board is empty, as the organiser/presenter you’ll be prompted to kick start the conversation with your own message or use one of our suggested ‘conversation starters.’

Present View

Rather than show your participants your private dashboard view or switch between browser windows, a better experience all round, is to use Present view. In the top right-hand corner of the dashboard, you’ll see a thumbnail mirror image of what the Present view display looks like, live in the moment.  

Surveys

Now you can edit a survey after it has been started! Maybe you noticed a typo or need to add more instructional text, or even add in a question – now you can edit as you wish.

Settings 

Session options, as well as customisation options, are now all in one place. Whether you’re looking to change your session settings, add logos and theming to the participant app and Present view, or add a co-host, you’ll find all these options in the main settings menu on the left-hand side of the dashboard.  

Data & reporting

If you want to dig into the data after your Vevox session, then you’ll love the new data view. Once you have run your session, you’ll now see tabs on the data view which allow you to see key statistics about your session.

You can still choose to download this data as a set of images and export the raw data as an excel file, but now you can also share this data page by sending someone a link. 

New Question Types

XY plot (aka Scatter chart) question type – a heavily requested feature, the XY plot question type is typically used for risk assessment, impact analysis, or any situation where you need to see the relationship between two data points.
