Print Friendly and PDF

Mobile Responses must be enabled for participants to use the TurningPoint App as a response device.

  1. Open TurningPoint and sign in to your account.
    The TurningPoint Dashboard opens.
  2. Click Enable in the upper right corner of the TurningPoint Dashboard.

    The Mobile Responses Session window opens.

  3. Select the Session ID from the drop-down menu.
    If Random is selected a session ID will be randomly generated.
    To reserve a unique session ID follow the steps below:
    1. Click Reserve.
    2. Enter a unique session ID between 4 and 14 alpha or numeric characters, but must contain at least one letter.
    3. Click Reserve.
  4. Click Start Session.
    The Mobile Responses Session Status window opens.

  5. Click Close to return the TurningPoint Dashboard.
    The Mobile Responses Session Status window does not need to be open for mobile responses to be enabled. Mobile responses will remain enabled until TurningPoint is closed or until End Session is selected from the Mobile Responses Session Status window.
  6. Select either PowerPoint Polling or Anywhere Polling from the TurningPoint Dashboard.
  7. Provide participants the Session ID to join the session.
