    The 'Vote Effects' sidebar panel allows you to configure the vote prompt, countdown clock and sound animations that can play during voting.

    Note: When the current slide does not contain an interactive question then all controls within the 'Vote Effects' sidebar will be disabled.

    Note:

    Changing the requirements in this view only updates the selected slide. If you want changes to effect the whole presentation you should update Preferences.

    Updating Preferences will only affect future created questions.

    Controls

    The 'Vote Effects' controls are contained within three sections:

    • Vote Prompt
    • Countdown Clock
    • Sounds

    Countdown Clock

    Control Description
    Show during vote

    Style

    • Analogue - The time left to vote is displayed within a pie slice that gradually disappears in a clockwise fashion until the countdown time has elapsed. If the countdown shape is changed then it behaves in the same way as the digital clock and remains static during the vote.
    • Digital - The time left to vote is displayed within a static rectangle. The shape of a digital clock be changed by clicking on it then choosing 'Edit Shape' within the 'Format' ribbon.

    The initial style of the countdown clock is copied from the default shape within the current presentation theme.
