Scoreboard Editor

Scoreboards are a great way to create competition for quizzes.

    Scoreboards work in conjunction with scoring questions and allow presenters to show the individuals or teams who have accumulated the highest (or lowest) number of points.

    If any of the highest scoring devices are assigned to registered participants, then those attendees' full names will appear within the participant column. Unregistered handsets will be identified by their index number or device UID.

    Scoreboards are created as regular Microsoft Office PowerPoint tables and can be formatted and animated in the same manner.

    Scoreboard Editor

    back to top


    The 'Scoreboard Editor' controls are contained within two main sections:

    • Scoreboard Type
    • Scoreboard Details

    Scoreboard Type

    Scoreboards are slides created through the Lumi ViewPoint software that calculates the scores for individuals or teams and displays them in a table instantly during slide show.

    The left-hand section of the 'Scoreboard Editor' screen allows you to choose the type of scoreboard that you wish to run. Changing the scoreboard type will determine how the scores are calculated.

    Scoreboard Type

    The 'Description' panel provides an explanation of the currently selected question type.

    Scoreboard Description

    The are two types of scoreboard:

    Icon Type Description
    Individual Individual Displays the scores of each individual device/delegate in a table.
    Team Team Displays the average or total score of a team of participants. The team is determined by the responses of a 'Team Question'.

    Scoreboard Details

    The next section of the 'Scoreboard Editor' screen allows you to enter the Scoreboard title, select the 'places' to display, select the 'Rounds' to include in the scoring. If creating a team scoreboard, you must select the question which allocates individuals into teams.

    Type Description
    Scoreboard Title This is where the title of the scoreboard is entered (e.g. 'Top 3 teams'). The title can be edited after the scoreboard has been created, both via the Scoreboard Editor and directly on the slide by typing in the text box.
    Scoreboard Places

    A scoreboard can only be setup on one slide at a time. The number of participants displayed is selected in the scoreboard wizard where you can select the top participants, bottom participants or a specific range. This allows the top 20 participants to be shown across 2 slides (i.e. the top 10 on slide 1 and places 11-20 on slide 2).

    Scoreboard Rounds When setting scoring on a question, it is possible to include a round name. This allows scoreboard's to display only scores from specific rounds (e.g. 'Top 10 scores for Round 1 - Sports').
    Team Scoreboard

    When the 'Team' scoreboard type is selected, a menu is displayed where you can select the 'team question'. The individual responses to the question that is chosen is what decides the teams.

    Team questions can be answered by participants live or can be pre-determined by importing individual data to the slide manually.

    Scoreboard Rows

    The number of top scorers that is shown is set by the number of rows that the scoreboard contains. The default number of participants shown when a new scoreboard can bechanged within the 'Scoring' tab of the 'Preferences' screen. The number of rows that a scoreboard can contain is only limited by the maximum number of participants that can be practically fit on the slide at a readable font size.
    You can also change the number of participants shown for an existing scoreboard in the same way that you you would add or remove rows of a regular PowerPoint table:

    Adding Rows

    1. Click within the last row of the scoreboard.
    2. Click on the Layout tab.
    3. Within the Rows & Column group click on the Insert Below button.
    4. Repeat this process for as many additional top scorers that you wish to show.

    Deleting Rows

    1. Select the unwanted bottom row(s) of the scoreboard.
    2. Click on the Layout tab.
    3. Within the Rows & Column group click on the Delete button then choose Delete Rows.

    Tied Situations

    Often one or more participants will have scored an equal number of points when the scoreboard is run. They will therefore be tied for the same place.
    For example, two people are joint top. The scoreboard will handle this tie by displaying the participants in alphabetical order of name (or IML Click or IML Connector system addressnumber if unregistered) on two rows. They will both have the same number of points. The person within the first row will have a place of '1st', the person within the second row will be in'= 1st' place. The next highest scoring participant will be in '3rd' place.If there is a tie, but not enough rows to list all of the tied participants, then the bottom row will contain a description of "# other tied participants".
