Add Microsoft Pulse to a Skype Meeting Broadcast

Microsoft Pulse is a voting app that's integrated into Skype Meeting Broadcast. It enables meeting attendees to participate in the event in real time, which keeps them engaged and gives organizers up-to-date information about how event information is being received. With Microsoft Pulse, organizers can post questions that attendees respond to via their computer or mobile device. Response data is available immediately so organizers can see trends and make changes to meeting content on the fly.

Prerequisites

Before adding a Microsoft Pulse to your Skype Meeting Broadcast, make sure:

  • You have a Microsoft Pulse account. The account is free and only takes a few minutes to create. After providing account information, you'll receive an email asking you to validate your account. Once that's done, you're ready to go.

  • You have to create a Microsoft Pulse before you can add it to your Skype Meeting Broadcast. When creating the Pulse, you'll create an account nickname and event link. Keep track of those items because you'll provide them when setting up your Skype Meeting Broadcast. For Microsoft Pulse instructions, see How Pulse works.
