  1. Automatic DEactivation of final poll question on PowerPoint slide advance, and greater flexibility for automatic deactivation

    It would be extremely helpful if there were an option to deactivate a poll question upon advancing to the next non-poll slide in a PowerPoint presentation, without exiting presenter mode. (Currently a poll only deactivates if the next slide is also a poll; that means the final poll is left active if no intentional action is taken.) That way I wouldn't have to remember to manually lock the last poll before moving onto the next (non-poll) slide of my PowerPoint, thus reducing the number of moving parts I have to think about when teaching/presenting. It's an entirely common-sense suggestion, and…

  2. Default the PPT presentation back to the Instructions tab automatically after clearing responses (versus the Correctness tab)!!

    When an instructional designer creates a PE question and adds it to PPT, it seems that the system automatically displays the last-viewed tab at the bottom of the PE slide when ran through in real-time. That means, that if an instructor did a 'dry run' of the presentation to 'practice,' there is a good chance the last-viewed slide is the Correctness tab or answer slide. It would be great if we could add a quick popup upon clearing responses if the system could ask something like, "Would you like to update the last-viewed slide to the Instructions tab and clear…

    Thank you for the great feedback! We totally understand the pain point here. If you head to Account settings > Activity settings, you'll find the option to set the default to showing instructions vs results. 


    I've shared your feedback internally and we're reviewing the option to add a confirmation message.

  3. For multiple choice, there should be a gradebook report option to count multiple correct answers.

    For multiple choice, there should be a gradebook report option to actually count multiple correct answers. Currently, if someone chooses any correct answer, they get a point awarded, and if they choose two correct answers, they still just get one point awarded. But it makes more sense to have an option (maybe through a tick-box on the question itself) that multiple correct answers should aggregate scores. So if there are two correct answers, each worth one point, someone who chooses just one should get one point, but someone who chooses both should get two points. (This should also come with…

  4. Allow upvotes only on individual Q&A activities

    Giving presenters the ability to "only allow upvotes" on individual Q&A activities will allow them to make the best decision based on the question prompt and their audience.

    Currently, "Only allow upvotes on Q&A activities" is an account-level setting that disables the downvote function on all Q&A activities. The impact is overly broad and limits presenter and participant functionality.

    Presenters are in the best position to determine when to disable downvotes based on the context and content of their individual activities.

  5. Allow presenters/sub-users to download the participant list

    Individual presenters/sub-users need the ability to export participants registered to them.

    The ability to download a list of participants is currently available to the account owner and administrators and includes all registered participants on the entire account.

    Adding the ability for sub-users to export a subset of participants will allow them to verify who is (and is not) registered to them and will help them to validate against import files, class rosters, and other membership lists.

  6. Add an option for a moderator to cancel showing repeating FRQ responses

    I'm a college student, and my professor uses Poll Everywhere as a way to encourage participation and take attendance. She posts polls throughout the presentation and dedicates a couple of minutes to look at the responses. Because everybody wants to get credit, a lot of responses, which show up chronologically, are one-word, basic and repetitive, whereas the more elaborate responses that take more time to write are never seen. I believe that adding a function that prevents repeating FRQ responses from being shown could be especially valuable for large groups to enable more various opinions to be expressed instead of…

  7. Sort poll responses by last names

    I sometimes use poll responses to take attendance, the roster on Canvas is ranked by the last name, it would be very helpful if the poll responses can be sorted by students' last names.

  8. Schedule and automate clear responses

    It would be super helpful and save time manually clearing responses it if was possible to, in advance, schedule and automate this task. There would need to be a handful of options, but my team would love to be able to do things like:
    -Set responses to clear on an annual date/time (e.g., Sept 1 every year)
    -Set responses to clear after a certain amount of time from the first response (e.g., 48 hours after first response)
    -Set responses to clear after a regular interval (e.g., clear responses every month)
    This also would be a useful option to alleviate frustrations…

    Thank you for your feedback! We don't currently have scheduling for clearing responses in our product roadmap, but we will definitely bring that feedback to our Product team. We do currently offer a bulk clear option so that you can clear the responses of multiple activities at once. Here is a support article that provides more information on how to do that. 

  9. Improvements to sharing activities (sharing responses and clearing authority)

    My unit specializes in asynchronous online courses, and we are usually using either the "embed code" or "response link" to place a PollEV activity onto a webpage in our LMS. Because we use a team-based course development approach, where an instructional designer often creates the activities and builds the course, but an instructor does the actual teaching, this creates challenges with clearing responses as needed between deliveries. We are not able to have instructors (often teaching for subsequent terms, long after the initial course build) clear responses on the PollEV activities. This creates extra maintenance work for the ID who…

  10. Ability to customize "Custom Report ID" in Registration tab

    Ability to customize "Custom Report ID" in Registration tab. It is currently labelled, "Name or Student ID". I would like the ability to modify the label or remove "Student" for use outside education context.

    It would look more professional and not repurposed educational tool.

  11. How to tell whether moderation is enabled on an old poll

    When I'm preparing a lecture with power point and re-using existing open-ended polls, I want to check whether or not moderation is enabled. To do that, I log into polleverywhere.com, find that poll, select "moderation" (under "configure"), select "open moderation," select "settings," and THEN I can see whether or not moderation is on. There's got to be an easier way.

    Since there's already a category "moderation" under the "configure" tab, and it allows us to turn on and off the profanity filter and emoji filter there, it seems it shouldn't be too hard to add a switch that allows us…

  12. Allow reports to be created from subsets of multiple folders OR allow for deletion of individual questions from a report

    Currently, one has the option either to create a report from one or more selected folders, OR to create a report from selected questions within a single folder. However, when teaching, it's not always possible to get through all the intended material in a given session, so sometimes a particular class will cover the end of one topic and the beginning of another topic. If one is (reasonably) sorting polling questions into folders by topic, there's a good chance that one will need to generate a report for a particular day that includes some polls from folder A and other…

    In clickable image question type, add an option to change the pin to another image (for example check mark, heart etc') or by uploading an image. Right now the only thing that can be customized in the pin color.

    Thank you for your feedback! We do have plans to change the shape from a pin to a filled in circle for better accessibility and readability for the audience. This will continue to allow color customization, but does not include customizing the shape. Although that is a very interesting idea that we'll discuss as a team.

  14. Remove/Move "Activity Title Hidden" Message on Response Screen

    I am using the option to hide the activity titles on the participants' devices to help encourage attendance. Having the option is great and it is quite effective. Enabling this option, however, puts a fairly large message "Activity title hidden, etc." that takes up a lot of the device screen above the question options, sometimes requiring users to scroll to see all options. Is it possible to have an option to remove this message (or at least display below the answer choices) so that students can see the answer choices immediately and not need to scroll? I don't think users…

  15. Ignore anonymous polls when creating report

    Currently, if you select a folder with multiple polls in it to create a report from, if one of them was set to record answers anonymously, the report creation simply fails and tells you that it couldn't do it because there was an anonymous poll. It would make a lot more sense for it to ignore the anonymous poll and succeed in creating a report from the others (and provide a warning message that it didn't include the anonymous polls). Currently, the only work-around is to go into the folder and select each non-anonymous poll by hand. You can't…

  16. Q & A question type - make 'load new responses' refresh button either more contrast or larger

    Currently, I didn't realize there was this 'Load New Responses' button as an audience member on the Q & A question after I submitted my response. See screenshot.

    Might be helpful to make it larger or a different color or bolder border around button.

  17. Add Activities to Reports

    Add the ability to add an activity to a report. To streamline using Poll Everywhere to take attendance, if I could create one report for attendance and then add my new attendance activity to the report and update the report.

    Currently, the only way we found to make this work was to create a folder with all attendance activities for the entire semester. However, this ends up showing students as failing because the percentage is taking into account all of the activities - even those never run.

    I'd like a simple way to take attendance and sync it to my…

  18. Move QR codes out of Beta

    The QR code feature has been in the beta feature for like 3 years now, but is now even more indispensable when students are responding to polls from a mobile device maybe in addition to accessing live teaching remotely on their computer. How about mainstreaming this and making it an easier/default feature for already time-poor and high-stressed lecturers? Instructions for the Beta route: https://support.polleverywhere.com/hc/en-us/articles/1260804261070-QR-codes

  19. Segmented polls for responses across groups

    A colleague described a use case that I think would be great for PollEv but that isn't yet supported. This colleague's goal was to do a "fist of 5" exercise across a large number of participants in a meeting, but to segment that response by teams. For example, someone could select which team they're in and also respond to the question, and the responses could be grouped according to the selection on that question.

    Implementation-wise, I think this could be accomplished by allowing someone to add a "segmentation" or "grouping" or similar to an activity's settings for viewing the results,…

  20. Add existing questions to a new competition

    I was surprised that the questions for competitions need to be added one by one. Come on folks! We need to be able to call on a library of our existing questions and incorporate those into a competition (then edit them if needs be) - in addition to adding new questions if needs be.

    Starting a new competition then adding questions one by one by one isn't great!
