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".

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Remove numbers from Polling Respose Options

          Please remove the numbers from polling options. They look confusing, and like they are typos

          • 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.

            • Remove capitals from PollEv.com/xyz on presentation view

              Audience members sometimes ask if the P & E have to be capitals and iI suspect others unnecessarily type capitals when they first visit PollEv.com/xyz. I'd prefer it to say "Respond at pollev.com/xyz". It's a small thing but every little helps with an audience's first time use.

                The ability to assign a question to a specific group. So if people are in a SALES group they could not answer questions that are limited to ADMIN.

                  • Formatting for competiton questions

                    Competition questions:

                    1) Remove the pollev.com message at the top of the screen (replace with custom url message)

                    2) Screen Names
                    a) ability to toggle off random screen names ?
                    b) ability to toggle random names to numbered names (guest 1, guest 2, etc…) ?
                    c) ability for admin user to provide alternate list of “client appropriate” random names (for non – registered users)

                    3) Option to not allow duplicate “user entered” screen names (sorry, that name is already taken for this session)

                      • Add ability for admins to import open-ended & Q/A answers.

                        Allow admins to import open-ended answers given by participants in a previous poll. This will allow for more possibilities with the participants input and would save time on the backend where we would not need to manually resubmit all answers.

                        Alternatively, provide option when duplicating a poll, to also copy over existing answers. Furthermore, having the ability after said duplication, to change from "open-ended" to "Q & A".

                        Example use-case:
                        -Participants submit questions to one open-ended poll throughout a weeklong event.
                        -Attendees will be split into two groups on the final day, two different general sessions.
                        -During each general session…

                        • Would be great to utilize the participant groups to designate specific polls, and/or generate reports for polls to identify groups.

                          this would help to exclusively limit responses to people who are registered for specific classes, and/or be able to vote during meetings attended by both voting and non-voting members.

                          • Deafult Option for Everyone - No Restriction Vs Restricted to Registrants

                            Default Option on a profile to set each new question created to for Everyone - No Restriction Vs Restricted to Registrants and VV. Right now we have to set that for each question we create manually, but it would be great to be able to change the default Audience Restriction based on what Poll questions I'm trying to build or what audience, as not all audiences are students or users of Poll Everywhere.

                              • Place a hyperlink in the question to direct students to a webpage before responding.

                                It would be nice to be able to link text to an outside webpage for students to be directed to before they respond to the question. Keeps students from wandering or fumbling with a long url.

                                • Speeding up competitions (less clicks, more automation)

                                  (1) If everyone answered the question it could be locked and (if selected) the timer doesn't have to count down any further. What are we waiting for?

                                  (2) I would like to go to the 'correct answer page' automatically after the question is locked. By then we've seen it long enough. This could reduce another unnecessary click as well.

                                    • Schedule Lock/Unlock to the minute

                                      Currently, the Schedule Lock/Unlock feature only allows 5 minute increments. It would be nice to have this go to the minute. We want to set specific quizzes to be locked at 11:59pm and currently have to do 11:55 which is a problem

                                      • Need for seamless open ended polls

                                        I really miss the opportunity to make a openended session (e.g. wordcloud) seamless.
                                        As it is now it is all to much of a mess to moderate incomming words. As I understand it I need an extra device to moderate "on the fly"?
                                        Why not make a sollution that one can make on the computer one uses anyway?
                                        I suggest split screens.

                                            Thanks for the feedback! Adding the time element to the Change Answer feature was a tricky decision for us, but was a response to issues we had where participants were interrupting presentations by deleting their responses at moments while the presenter was specifically addressing them.

                                            I’ll bring this up for our design and engineering team and see what it might take to make that an editable setting. We just always try to strike a balance between simplicity and customization to keep things understandable.
