Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the best way to preview an Overlay Response?

A: As you build out your Overlay Responses, you will see a preview appear on the right hand side of the screen. This is a good way to gauge how your Overlay Responses will look. However, you can take it a step further by clicking on the 'Preview' button from the Builder Map. This will allow you to engage with your experience like a consumer would, which will give you the truest sense of how your Overlay Responses are working.

Q: I just added the polling feature to my quiz but the polling percentages don't seem accurate.

A: If you are testing the polling feature, then you may notice that the polling percentages appear random. This is because Jebbit requires data from at least ten sessions on the launched version of the experience before real percentages are calculated and displayed. So for a very small period of time, the percentages are random.

Q: Can I reset the polling percentages on my experience?

A: You are not able to reset the polling percentages after ten real responses have been collected on a screen. However, you can reset the percentages by making a copy of your experience and using that instead, or by creating a brand new screen.
