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.

  1. Provide score on graded Survey results

    Add the ability for the participant to see their score upon submitting a Survey that has correct answers indicated.

    • Sub-users can be a member of multiple groups

      Hi there,
      We would like it if sub-users can be a part of more than one group. We have some faculty who teach graduate and undergraduate classes, and need to copy polls from other undergrad and graduate faculty. Currently users can only be a part of one group. Can you please change this so that users can be a part of multiple groups simultaneously?

      Thanks,
      Kevin

        This is something we are seriously considering. We are looking into a lot of different options to handle roles, permissions, and team structures within the application for our larger customers. It is a pretty significant project and we’ve only just begun some initial user research into what this might take.

        If you are interested in providing feedback for sharing/copying/collaborating on polls with other people at your organization → we plan on performing user interviews in early 2018. Send us an email to support@polleverywhere.com and we will add you to our interview candidate pool.

        Otherwise, please feel free to share any specific cases or problems you’re seeing here. I’ll route them to our user research team

        Thanks for the feedback!

        • Student time to respond

          I am interested in finding out how much time the students spend answering a poll (ideally, in seconds). I have the concern that many students simply select any answer as soon as the question becomes available without thinking through it, so I was interested in looking into time spent. Right now, If I go under individual student response history, I can see when they submitted their answer (hours, minutes, and seconds) but, in order to calculate the time spent, I also need to know when exactly I made the poll available and I am unable to do that. Thank you…

          • Hiding/Showing results when using PollEV Presenter

            I use PollEV Presenter and I love it. It would be incredibly helpful to be able to hide or show poll results from within the presentation software (i.e., Keynote, Powerpoint or Google Slides) without having to go into the PollEverywhere site to turn the 'eye' off or on.

            • Response messages should be color-coded (green for correct response, red for incorrect response).

              I've enabled the 'Send Reply Message' option and added a custom response message to my polls. Respondents are replying via their web browser, not text messages. The polls are set to grade incoming responses.

              By default, the response message that appears at the top of the respondent's screen is green. However, the message should be a different color to indicate a correct or incorrect response to the respondent (i.e. green for correct, red for incorrect).

              At a minimum, the default color for the response message should be changed to a color other than the default green because, in the current…

              • Display multiple results simultaneously

                It would be nice for users to view results from multiple questions simultaneously as they are being voted.

                For instance, users would see multiple results tallied as users are inputting data.

                  Icons and timer should be together so mouse activation easier.

                  • Cobweb Diagrams

                    Hi guys,
                    have you considered offering a cobweb diagram as a way of displaying multi-dimensional responses? I would find that extremely helpful.
                    Cheers,
                    Michael

                    • A new real-time voting system for the people—to reach our elected representatives when we need an immediate consensus with political topics.

                      I believe that the poll activity should be categorized into at least three groups within different domains. One for students and teachers, one for businesses and presenters, and also those who would like to vote on an international scale. So you have a public and private voting system. The private domain could have the individual’s name, but the public can permit the name of validated organizations, and also include the feature of searching for public polls to vote upon to network entire communities, organizations, and nations. This polling system has the potential to integrate a wider spectrum of audiences and…

                      • The Third-Party Assurance for International Polling

                        Since, many are left uncertain of the trustworthiness and validity of government polling, this polling system would—hopefully, and soon—be secure and credible enough from breaches, or tampering.

                        The single-vote, identification system, with a brief description (or a list of general information of the authenticated voter)—could help; along with creating an open forum, and categories with sub-categories for public voting of self-prioritizing topics/subjects/concerns (based on quantitative value) that the people would like to address. There could be a top 10, 20, 30, list column on the side-panel, and maybe an option for a small chatroom with a user-appropriate language-filter integrated for…

                            It would be nice to turn off the icon and text "Answers to this poll are anonymous" if it's anonymous and we don't care to show that on the screen. I have a client asking to not have that text on the result screen.

                                  i would suggest in your open ended tool giving the leader / facilitator the ability to group/cluster ideas so that similar ideas can be put in themes. then be able to vote on them would be easier

                                      Does Poll Everywhere intend to create an email-alert list for admins that announces performance issues and outages? While the status page (https://status.polleverywhere.com/) is quite helpful, it would be more helpful to also have an email-alert list for admins when issues like this occur so we can be proactive and contact our users to let them know about these issues.

                                      • Resend Participant Invite

                                        We would like to be able to re-send invitations to imported participants.
                                        Participants can be sent info to complete their registration through the participant import process, but there is no way to re-send the "complete your registration email" to them once they have been imported.

                                            It is part of our plan to allow change answer to all of our open-ended poll types. It will take a bit of time because we also want these “changed answers” to be recorded in case someone replies with an inappropriate response that requires follow up, we don’t want that to be deleted.

                                            I’ll post here when we begin work in earnest on the project. Thanks for the feedback!
