Live Session Polls (Delayed -HBS 3.0)


Hubilo provides an option to share Polls on the live stream during a session, this increases the engagement rate of polls and gets attendees to interact with the engagement options with ease.

Steps to enable/disable Show Polls on Mainstage:

Enabling Show Polls on Stage: The 'Show Polls on Stage' option is checked by default. If the option is available on the dashboard please contact your CXM.

Disabling Show Polls on Stage: On the Dashboard, in Sessions > Go to a particular session > Go to Engagement > Polls > Uncheck 'Show Polls on Stage?' > Click 'Save'.


Moderator/Speaker can Show Poll on HBS Mainstage:

Step 1: The moderator/speaker for the session will see the option to 'show on stream' on HBS 3.0 on clicking the 3-dot icon next to a poll modal on the side panel.

Step 2: A pop-up to choose the position of the poll modal will be shown. The moderator/speaker will be able to drag and preview the position where the poll will be shown on the mainstage and place it as per their preference.

If a default position has been checked for a poll, the position confirmation will not be asked again when a current poll is replaced with a new one.

The moderator/speaker can change the position of the poll modal on the stream by clicking the “Edit” icon when the poll is added to the stream.


On confirming the position, the poll will be displayed on the stream to all other panelists for that session instantaneously while the endpoint attendees will view the socket event based on the elapsed time of “Go Live” for that session.

Only one poll can be shown on the main stream at a given point of time.

Moderator/speaker can override a poll already shown on stream at any time. A pop-up will be shown informing that there is active content already displayed on stream.

However, if a poll is replaced by a chat or a Q&A, the position of the same will be confirmed again.


The moderator/speaker can interact with the poll when it is shown on the stream.

The poll that is shown on the stream is also highlighted in the side panel.

The poll can be removed from the stage by clicking on the 'X' (cross) icon directly or by clicking on the 3-dot menu on the active poll > ‘Remove from stream’' option. Confirm the same on the pop up.


The above steps will be applicable for all the streaming options under Stream source.

Below is an example for YouTube stream source.
