Pigeonhole Live

Interactive Q&A platform for real-time engagement at events

4.8/5 (8 reviews)

Pigeonhole Live Overview

Pigeonhole Live is an interactive Q&A platform for event planners and speakers of public conferences and internal corporate events. The solution gives audiences a voice by enabling real-time question and answer sessions, surveys, and live polls, bringing engagement and interactivity to presentations. Users can gather insightful data about audiences and drive useful, open conversations at meetings, events, or town halls.

Audience members can post live questions to speakers to help them identify popular questions and topics to discuss. Users can curate the content posted with complete control over all submissions, including question filtering. All selected questions will be automatically reflected on the projector panel (question wall), and can be voted or commented on by other audience members.

Pigeonhole Live enables speakers to ask multiple choice questions through audience polling and surveys. Members can participate in polls and surveys with a tap of a button on their smartphone using the mobile web app to provide real-time feedback. Results can be projected live on screen as votes are cast, including optional open-ended questions that allow audience members to enter free text responses. Members can sign in to their profiles or social media networks to share their identity, or participate anonymously. The progress indicator helps participants track questionnaire completion.

The agenda displays all interactive sessions for the day, and allows attendees to navigate and access various Q&A, polls, and surveys available to them, useful for multi-track conferences. The Pigeonhole dashboard provides users with detailed reports and real-time insights of user statistics or employee engagement for poll, survey and Q&A at their presentations. Custom branding features allow organizations to match the Pigeonhole platform to their corporate branding guidelines to improve brand perception among audiences.

My courses and keynotes have reached a new level since I started using Pigeonhole - It's great!

Pros

The platform provides excellent features to interact with your audience. I use it myself several times during my day courses in PowerPoint & Presentation Technique. Giving the audience the opportunity to vote, pose questions and giving comments has made the courses even higher rated in the evaluations (and I can also use the platform to do evaluations that I used to do “analogue”).
The customer support is fantastic – fast, professional and even open to new ideas. I am currently in dialogue with Pigeonhole to develop a new feature, that will be useful for me. Thumbs up!
In addition to my own usage I have also facilitated that some of my customers also use Pigeonhole during their important keynotes, strategy presentations ect. The CEO’s I recommended it to are instantly able to see the value and trust the reliability.

Cons

I think more videos going through each step of setting up the different types of sessions would be a good idea. Not a big issue as it is fairly intuitive. But still – would be nice. And I know that the Pigeonhole is already working to develop this. What’s not to like!

Pigeonhole is a great tool for large/multi day conferences and meetings. Very reliable and scalable.

Pros

I absolutely love the response time from the support staff. Extremely important when issues occur during a live event!! The agenda building and Q&A parts are certainly the core features. Haven't seen anything comparable yet. And I have tested lots of comparable services. I also like the ability to run everything from an iPad in solo mode. No need for a Producer or technician at the back to handle ad-hoc adaptions. Very well implemented screening and highlighting approach for the Q&A tool. I have used the service in lots of different settings (from 20 to 250 participants and in areas with limited internet connectivity) and so far it has never let me down in terms of reliability, connectivity, scalability.

Cons

The Q&A tool is certainly at the top end of available solutions. There are very competitive services available that have a more comprehensive, customizable and fresh look in terms of rendering input from the audience. For example pre-defined scales, 2x2 matrix, user supplied backgrounds.
I would love to see more efficiency-oriented features on the admin side. For example the ability to duplicate complete events and not only individual agenda items, automatic recalculation of all starting times if you change the duration or start of an agenda item, pre-defined scales. The pigeonhole team is usually very responsive to feature requests and does a great job of keeping me updated on their feature roadmap.

An extremely complementary tool for large groups- which has supported a number of our events.

Helped to support a number of global events

Pros

Really like the word cloud feature and different view options- it is very user friendly and participants enjoy the interactive experience (particularly more introverted characters who are less able to speak out in a big meeting). We have used it to complement a number of global events in Singapore, UK, Netherlands, Nairobi, US and Switzerland. The interactive use varied in different locations- Asia and US was best. UK and Africa least used-In Nairobi we found people preferred to speak out and in the UK participants were less comfortable with the technology. The most interesting use of the word cloud was in the US where participants submitted a six word story- this was visually very effective as the word cloud enabled us to vote on the best stories and participants really loved this. Since that meeting we have received requests to use pigeonhole for other US events.

Cons

Nothing to not like- the tool is effective and easy to set up- it definitely increases participation and encourages people to join in and get involved.

I recommend it!

Pros

Easy to make a discussion during a presentation or a meeting, live responses are great as well. Also we had to contact the support of the software few times and it was a fast and pleasant experience!

Cons

How do you use the admin panel when everyone is watching? there could be a way however I couldn't find it

Response from PigeonLab

Thanks for the amazing review, Tedi! If you're running this on your own, you can use our Solo Presenter mode on the Projector Panel. Just click on the questions to enlarge, and click on the Answered button when you're done. You don't need the Admin Panel unless you have filtering enabled.
