A Question Board is an online archive of questions and answers asked at your physical or virtual event.

It is updated in real-time, as questions and votes are submitted by members of your audience.

As moderator you can also answer and reward questions.

How do people hear about the Question Board? We let our users know.

Email invites are also sent automatically to any previous posters for you if you're on one of our plans. Just one of our many innovations.

Organising an event? Here are some helpful tips for getting the most out of using Assenty.

This screencast also demonstrates how to answer questions live.

Question Awards
You can reward questions from your audience with Gold, Silver or Bronze Question Awards. They look like this:

 Bronze Question Award

These badges are permanently displayed next to the name of the person who asked the question on the Question Board, and on the individual page displaying the Question.

As the event progresses, you may wish to share your audience's engagement with the Question Board on social media.

Each question and the entire Question Board can be easily shared online using the social share buttons provided on the Question Board and on individual Question pages.
