Ideas

How can we improve Poll Everywhere?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. Points allocation questions are really useful. For example, you have 100 points to allocate to these five things. Where do you put the point

    Allocating points to different items can be really useful. For instance, you could ask people what proportion of their taxes should go to:

    Road repair
    Sewers
    Water
    Parks
    Airport expansion

  3. Differentiate single chioce question from multiple choice questione

    By default all "multiple choice" questions are truely spoken single choice questions. It would be easier to add another type of questions for real multiple choice questions, where you may opt for multiple answers (e.g. like Pingo does it). Currently you have to set the number how often may a participant vote to the number of answers and then the number of how often for each answer to 1.

  4. In competitions, ability to make questions worth different number of points

    In competitions, instead of each correctly answered question automatically being worth 1000 points, this value should be customizable, so questions can be worth 100, 200, 500, etc points.

    Also, the option of setting incorrectly answered questions as negative points.

  6. When downloading gradebook, ALL data must be shown

    In particular, when more than one answer is allowed, all those answers should be separate columns in the gradebook. right now most of the data is simply not downloaded. Also, the value someone gave needs to be downloaded, not just points, so we can see the free text. This might be a different type of report from a gradebook - the goal is a file with one row per respondent and one column per idea that includes ALL the data (numeric and text) gathered in the poll.

  7. Random Question order

    I have a classroom of students who sit in pairs. They have a final exam consisting of a set number of questions, that each student gets. At the moment the local exam server we run presents all questions in a random order to the students and allows the students to put problematic questions back in the pool for a later attempt.
    This randomisation ensures that the students are answering each question to the best of their ability with no likelihood of being swayed by the student sitting beside them. It limits cheating or collaboration too.

  8. Bug in Clickable Image

    If a user clicks too close to the top edge of the image their response is out of bounds and is placed at the top left (bottom left on mobile) and it is marked as correct even if it is not inside the region it is meant to be correct in.

  10. Integrate with Microsoft Teams as an app

    There is a strong need to be able to control the forum of people voting/comment but doing so in an anonymous way. There is no great way to do this in Microsoft Teams and the only apps available that support this are TinyPulse and other competitors. Microsoft Teams is important because it's used in enterprise scenarios and already can control access to various groups etc.

    I use PollEverywhere regularly with my organization of almost 100 people. Being able to extend it's usage to garner feedback asynchronously and anonymously outside of meeting rooms and presentations would really take it to the…

  12. Additional visual settings for clickable image marker

    Visual
    I think this is a very important feature to be able to change the green color of the markers.
    I just want to use a map with a lot of green areas - for the audience it is not easy to see the markers. ---
    A second issue is that there are almost some persons which are handycapped with color blindness red-green.

  14. Allow Survey to be Group or have a separate Category for Survey

    Currently, all surveys cannot be grouped otherwise it cant be shared and reside in UNGROUP. This can be messy if there are a lot of survey or polls in the UNGROUP.

    Even though I close to hide the Q, it does not remember the setting. when login to polleverywhere all the survey Q are open up.

    Suggest allowing Survey to be Group and nested in another category called SURVEY. It would be neater and easier to find.

  18. Add a stopwatch to the poll

    Polls currenlty have the option for a timer only, so this idea could be easy to implement. There are different scenarios where a meeting room needs to time how long they spend on the current slide, for example, discussing and evaluating colleagues, then voting on the "grade". A stopwatch would allow to time without requiring a separate application to run in the forground as a timer, making Polleve a more complete package. Thanks!

  19. Export poll questions

    Poll Everywhere should include an option for poll creators to export poll questions out of the system. This could be done via .csv file. Since poll questions can be imported into the system, there should be an option to export them as well.

    We do have data exports available for our University-Wide and Enterprise accounts. Anyone on these accounts may contact their dedicated Account Manager to get this enabled.

    Otherwise, we do have a CSV export for our Executive Summary report which will have the poll title and all response options. However, the format isn’t really designed to be uploaded to another system necessarily and may need someone to manually delete certain fields to work.

  20. Allow students to submit open-ended answers to a question, and then allow the class to choose the correct answer from the submissions

    For those who have played the game Fibbage, this idea will sound familiar, because it's an ingenious way of making classroom quizzes fun.

    I'd love to see a feature where students would be allowed to submit an answer to a question. After all submissions are received, they appear on the screen in addition to the correct answer. Students must select the correct answer from among all of the submissions.

    What makes this a game and much more fun is that kids are encouraged to submit clever (but ultimately incorrect) "fake" answers to try to fool the other students and prevent…
