Using the Spinner Wheel

Using the Spinner Wheel

The spinner wheel can be used to pick any entry at random.

How to Add Entries Manually to the Spinner Wheel

You can add entries to the spinner wheel by writing directly on the slide in the centre column of the editor. Simply write in your entry and click the 'add' button.


Protip 💡 The spinner wheel can take up to 10,000 entries.

How to Autofill Entries as Participants' Names

You may want to use the spinner wheel to select your presentation's participants at random. If that's the case, you can autofill these entries to the wheel by getting each participant to enter their own name.
In the right-hand column, under the title 'Autofill entries with...', you can check the box labelled 'Participants' names'.


With this box checked, when participants reach this slide, they will be prompted for their names and an avatar, the same way they are in a quiz.

Protip 💡 If you had a quiz slide before your spinner wheel slide, then checking the 'Participants' names' box will automatically fill in the names of your quiz players - they won't need to write them again.



How to Remove a Manual Entry

To remove a manual entry from the wheel, hover over the entry in the entry list and press the bin icon labelled 'Delete this entry'.

How to Add or Remove Participants' Names

If you're using the wheel for participants' names, you may want to add or remove participants depending on who has joined and left the presentation since the last spin.

If the audience has changed at all since the last spin, then the names in the entry list will reflect the changes, and a button labelled 'Update Wheel' will appear.

Clicking this button will tell you exactly how many people have entered and left since the last spin and will ask you to confirm the update.

What's next?

With all your desired entries in the wheel, simply press the button at the centre of the wheel to spin it. The chosen entry will be displayed on presenter and audience devices.
