I know, I know- a timer can’t be added. But has anyone figured out a work-around? there will be a first after all. :grinning:

Hi @iok,

Actually a timer can be added to a quiz. You just need to click on the three dots next to the poll, then ‘Edit’ and then select ‘Enable timer’. 

For other polls, you could set a timer yourself and just start it when you activate the poll. If anyone has any suggestions or workarounds here, we would love to hear them :)

Let me know if you have any further questions.

I would like to see a feature where you can set the timer for all Questions within a Quiz, instead of clicking the timer box and typing the amount of time for each, individual question. I use the same amount of time for hundreds of Questions. Can I either have a timer group selection for the Event or the Quiz itself?

Hi @MattL,

When you’re creating the quiz, the settings of the first question should duplicate to the other questions as well. After you’re created the first question and set the timer, simply start typing the second question and you should see that the timer settings automatically carry over. Here is a short video of how it works.

Thanks for the idea though! I can see that this could be a bit more intuitive and I’m passing on your feedback. Keep it coming :)

Let me know if you need anything else!
