Open your PowerPoint presentation, then add a new blank slide. From the menu, go to Insert > My Add-ins. Select the "Pigeonhole Live - Interactive Q&A and Polls" and click on the "Add" button. From here, drag the corners to expand the object to fill the whole slide.

Paste your Pigeonhole's Projector Panel URL. If you don't know your Projector Panel URL, go to your Dashboard > Pigeonhole > Run page to retrieve it.

From there, select the Q&A or Poll session to load.

If you wish to add more sessions, either repeat the process or duplicate the slide and select another session. You can move the slides to another position in your deck as per normal. To change any Q&A or Poll settings, go to your Dashboard.

Once done, save your PowerPoint Presentation.

Even though this is a PowerPoint presentation file, the data loaded for any Q&A or Poll session is in real-time too. Your computer will still need a stable Internet connection.

Sharing the PowerPoint Presentation with others

If you use our PowerPoint Add-in to display Pigeonhole Live Q&A and/or Poll sessions in your presentation and then share the presentation with others, they will also need to install the free PowerPoint Add-in on their computers.
