Live Session Q&A (Delayed-HBS 3.0)


Hubilo provides an option to share Q&A on the live stage during a session, this increases the engagement rate of Q&A and gets attendees to interact with the engagement options with ease.

Steps to enable/disable Show Q&A on Mainstage:

Enabling Show Q&A on Stage:

The 'Show Q&A on Stage' option is checked by default.

If the option is available on the dashboard please contact your CXM.


Disabling Show Q&A on Stage:

On the Dashboard, in Sessions > Go to a particular session > Go to Engagement > Q&A > Uncheck 'Show Q&A on Stage?' > Click 'Save'.


Session Host/Moderator/Speaker can Show Q&A on HBS Main stream:

Step 1: The moderator/speaker for the session will see the option to 'show on stream' on v2 Community on clicking the 3-dot icon next to a Q&A modal on the side panel.

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

The panelist can change the position of the Q&A modal on the stream by pressing the “Edit” icon when the Q&A modal is added to the stream.

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

The answer given by the speaker to the questions asked, will also be reflected on the stream.


A panelist can override a Q&A already shown on stream by themselves or other panelists at any interval of time. A pop-up will be shown informing them that there is active content already displayed on stream.

If the panelist has checked a default position for the Q&A modal, the position confirmation will not be asked again when the current Q&A modal on the stream is replaced with a new one.

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

Panelists can interact with the Q&A by upvoting when the modal is shown on the stream. The Q&A that is shown on the mainstream will also be highlighted in the side |

The Q&A can be removed from the stream by clicking on the 'X' (cross) icon directly or by clicking on the 3-dot menu on the active Q&A > '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.
