Useful tips

  • With moderation turned on, you can approve, reject or edit incoming questions directly in Slack
  • You can highlight or archive a live question directly in Slack
  • If you want to be notified about every incoming question, go to the channel's settings and turn on notifications
  • If you want someone else to moderate incoming questions, just invite them to your private channel
  • If your event has multiple rooms, you can't choose a specific room in Slack. All questions are collected in one channel but you can see to which room each question belongs.
