Red - Voting

How VOTING WORKS, VISUALISATION AND STRATEGIES FOR USE

RED Revision v90+document revision: 3

voting types
Voting TYPES
  • Generally there are only 2 types:
  • User generated ‘on the fly’ answers that you want users to vote for (called ‘freeflow’)
  • Prepared Question with predefined answers when you want to ‘poll’ (called ‘prepared’) or ‘rank’ (like concensor)
  • For both you can allow users to vote onceor multiple times
starting voting mode
STARTING Voting Mode
  • A vote is started by pressing ‘v’ for (vote) on a question (new or prepared)

V

Vote Count

Red line means it’s “f”ocussed

Max Votes per Pax (iPad)

Colour change means voting / voted

Symbol Pax needs to type to vote on that answer

vote symbols alfabetic
VOTE SYMBOLS - Alfabetic
  • Left to each answer is a symbol (usually ‘a’, ‘b’, …) that shows what a PAX needs to type on iPad to vote for that question.
  • So to vote for ‘Clarity of Roles’ a user types ‘a’ on the iPad.
  • Multiple simultaneous votes are allowed by using ‘spaces’ on iPad: e.g. ‘a b c’ (will vote for a, b and c)
vote symbols numeric
VOTE SYMBOLS - Numeric
  • If you have Red v90+ you can also change the voting symbols to be numeric rather then alfabetic.
  • Use the context menu to change.
vote symbols on ipad
VOTE SYMBOLS ON IPAD
  • Single vote input
  • If multiple votes enabled you can keep sending votes individually.
  • Multiple vote input
  • If you send too many, the iPad will give a warning and NO votes are taken into account
  • Each symbol counts as 1 vote.
voting requires focus
Voting requires FOCUS
  • Like any iPad interactivity the question the needs to be in “f”ocus for PAX to submit votes
  • This is indicated by the Red Line (like ‘recording’)
  • If the line is not Red, e.g. a premade question/vote. Select and press “f”.
  • In “freeflow” when pressing “v” it will also autofocus the iPad input

f

focus required fail 1
FOCUS required FAIL #1
  • If nothing is focused in Red the iPad will say ‘Sorry, there is nothing to answer right now’.
focus required fail 2
FOCUS required FAIL #2
  • If another question is focussed however it will receive a normal ‘answer’

Selected but not focussed

succesful vote
SUCCESFUL VOTE
  • A succesful vote will add 1 (or more) to the vote count (see later)
  • iPad shows ‘Message Sent: ‘..’
vote count
VOTE COUNT
  • Shows how many votes this question has received.
  • If the Max Vote Count is greater 1 then each vote still counts as 1 vote. : So if you have 10 Paxand 3 as Max Count you will likely get “30” Votes.
  • MAX(VOTE COUNT) = # of PAX * MAX_VOTE_COUNT
max vote count per ipad
MAX VOTE COUNT PER IPAD
  • Shows how many votes eachiPad is allowed to make for this question.
  • Change count by UP/DOWN Arrow.
  • You can modify whilst voting is going on but never back lower then the highest number of votes that a single iPad has given

reaching max vote count ipad
REACHING MAX VOTE COUNT iPad
  • If an iPad has reached the maximum allowed votes, it shows: “you’ve already voted on this question”
show results per answer
SHOW RESULTS PER ANSWER
  • To show the results at any type you need to press “h”(idden) on the question to toggle result count

H

when to show results
WHEN TO SHOW RESULTS
  • If you know you will visualise as a barchart: Never show the results.
  • Otherwise: close to when you are about to reach the maximum possible amount of votes

H

ui with results showing
UI WITH RESULTS SHOWING
  • Shows how many votes each answers has received.
  • Notice that the symbol column has moved up.
  • Number will change in real-time as people are voting.
faking results
FAKING RESULTS
  • By selecting an answer and pressing “CTRL + Up/Down Arrows” you can add fake votes.
  • This is useful for testing (like adding ‘a’nswers).
  • Allows corrections and also building of preloaded barcharts.

stop reset voting mode
STOP/RESET Voting Mode
  • To reset a vote press ‘v’ again to stop voting and once again to (re)start (and clear the current results: NO UNDO)

Focus stops

Symbols dissappear

Colour stays to indicate a vote did happen

Focus reappears

Symbols appear

All votes are reset.

stop voting mode tip
STOP Voting Mode (tip)
  • Generally you do not need to ‘stop’ a vote as this is mainly controlled by pressing the “f”ocus on a new question or the world.
  • And because users cannot keep adding votes the system stays in a coherent state.
visualisations
Visualisations
  • Besides showing the result count there are 2 ways to usefully show the results of a Vote.
  • Barcharts and Worldcloud.

create a barchart
CREATE A BARCHART
  • On a question with a vote count > 1
  • Right mouse click to get context menu
  • “Visualise as Bar Chart”
barchart appears to left and connected
BARCHART Appears to LEFT AND CONNECTED
  • At present the connection line doesn’t ‘mean’ anything.
barchart does not update after being created
BARCHART DOES NOT UPDATE AFTER BEING CREATED
  • More votes came in after the Barchart was created but this does not (yet) update.
when to create the barchart tip
WHEN TO CREATE THE BARCHART (tip)
  • Keep track of the votecount and see if it is close to being maxed out (remember Max = #PAX * Max_Vote_count).
  • Usually a unspoken dialogue will occur between ‘Facilitator’ and ‘Navigator’ to see when it needs to be done.
create a wordcloud
CREATE A WORDCLOUD
  • On a question with a vote count > 1
  • Right mouse click to get context menu
  • “Visualise as Word Cloud”
wordcloud appears left and connected
WORDCLOUD APPEARS LEFT AND CONNECTED
  • You might need to ‘r’otate the wordcloud for the best view.
change wordcloud to tagcloud
CHANGE WORDCLOUD TO TAGCLOUD
  • Sometimes it’s easier to read a tag could. Right Mouse Click on Worldcloud > Cloud > Tag Cloud
warning when using wordcloud and voting
WARNING WHEN USING WORDCLOUD AND VOTING
  • A wordcloud will still COUNT words within each answer. So if you have duplicate words between answer the size of each ‘Tag’ is counted * the votecount! (notice how relative to other words proactivity has gotten bigger)
voting strategies
VOTING STRATEGIES
  • Red is designed to be quite abstract, flexible and simple.
  • You need to be ‘creative’ when thinking how best to approach a voting strategy.
  • We especially need to think about prepared ‘polls’ or ‘selections’ versus the ‘freeflow’ user generated answers
general voting comments
GENERAL voting COMMENTS
  • Voting or Polling can help but also distract many Participants.
  • It’s not always fair to draw conclusions, especially with prepared answers.
  • Users prefer to vote on answers generated by them.
  • Voting can be fun when question is casual and non-commital.
  • Voting is anonymous and this needs to be said up front
  • Allowing multiple votes tends to work better as PAX will feel less ‘binary’ about choices.
freeflow prevent too many answers
FREEFLOW: PREVENT TOO MANY ANSWERS
  • Voting on large sets of answers is not pleasant. We recommend to keep it so that the total count < 26 (a-z).
  • Ask restrictive questions: ‘What is your favourite colour?”, “Your Most/Best”.
  • If time allows you can ‘m’erge answers but be careful NOT to be crude about it. PAX feels more precious about own typed answers
freeflow
FREEFLOW
  • We generally would use a worldcloud to make sense of freeflow answers unless the # of answers is small or has been merged with help from users.
prepared poll 2 main types
PREPARED / POLL: 2 Main Types
  • Either you are ‘selecting’ an item from a list (“which, what”)
  • Or you are ‘grading’ a question / attribute (“how much”)

creating prepared votes
CREATING PREPARED VOTES
  • Create a new question and name it, select only question.
  • Press ‘a’ for (answer) to add an empty answer (faking an answer)
  • Select answer and type in what it needs to say.
  • Repeat procedure

a

polls selection
POLLS / SELECTION
  • Generally to guide a further debate or direction in a workshop.
  • Visualise as barchart
  • Fine/better to do multiple votes
  • Ok to sort barchart (“s”ort)
grading voted
Grading Voted
  • Grade from positive to negative (a = more ‘positive’)
  • Do not sort barchart as curve gives distribution of group.
multiple grading
Multiple GRADING
  • If you need to grade many similar / related types consider using Matrix.
  • For PAX it will feel a lot like repetition unless you clearly define that they will do quite a few and have the iPad ready. (also difficult to manage when to swap between votes)
