5. Once you’ve written the information, scroll to the bottom of the screen. You can choose to click on the white button for more options or the green button to go to the next stage. A window will pop up to confirm your decisions, and then press ‘okay.’


6. Set up questions that you want to ask contenders, preview the screen, and then press ‘share.’ These buttons can be found at the bottom of your screen. Adding a question opens a new window. Fill in the information and then press ‘save.’
