Congratulations! You’ve created a Thoughtexchange and you’re ready to send it out to your participants. (Click here if you need some help with that part of the process.) When your exchange is live, the Manage page is where you’ll find everything you need to invite folks to participate, track the number of thoughts and ratings provided so far, take a peek at emerging ideas, and much more.
For a quick overview of how the Manage page tools work, check out our video walkthrough included below. Keep scrolling to find a text summary of the different tools and links to other handy resources.
Edit - Make changes to the content of your exchange. Click here to learn about creating an exchange.
Presenter Mode - Run an exchange live with a group of participants using graphics that update in realtime and interactive discussion features. Click here to learn how it works.
Events - Access features like live streaming and breakout (or Roundtable) groups. These options are currently in beta-testing and you will only see this tab if you have requested it be turned on.
Invite - Get the shareable link or code that you will send to participants to grant them access to the exchange. Click here to view example invitation email text.
