Ideas

  1. Show a counter for the no of students responses and time elapsed

    In academic use, it would be great to be able to see a counter for the no of responses that thave been received and also the time elapsed in the window when you enable a poll. This saves from constantly having to ask "have people responsed" and trying to guess how mauch time has elapsed before closing the quiz.

  2. Randomize questions

    I need to be able to randomize questions, in order to prevent biased/ unconsious choices. Like Kahoot offers

  3. Option to italicize poll responses

    I often teach classes on citation styles, so being able to italicize journal titles, book titles, etc. in my multiple choice questions would be very useful.

  4. Improve usability of poll interface

    The live poll tech is awesome, but the poll management interface could use some improvements for basic usability.
    1. Biggest one is please make the group hide/reveal triangles maintain their last position when you navigate away to edit view and back. It currently reverts back to all extended position each time I go back to the poll view screen, and it takes a lot of tedious scrolling and clicking to go back to the place where I was working.

    2. Another basic one would be for duplicated questions to appear immediately beneath the one copied - so we don't have…

  5. Allow ODBC link to poll data to facilitate custom queries/analytics

    Give us a way to link directly to raw data or tabular format. I currently manually pull down my poll everywhere data in your 'pivot table' report format and perform custom query analytics and visualizations in MS Access and Tableau. It'd be nice to be able to set up the link to the poll/survey data once and not have to deal with the tedium of version control and manual steps.

  6. Option to turn off access to participant response history

    Instructors using PE for exam review do not want students to have access to a log of their questions to share with each other or future classes. Just turning off correct isn't enough, they want to completely make access to their questions banks not possible.

  7. Auto-archive results of polls

    Auto-archive results of polls, instead of manual generation of reports. This is very useful when faculty wants to reuse the same polls for another class, and they don’t want to manually clear polls or re-insert polls in PowerPoint.

  8. Leaderboards

    It would be great if we could add our independent questions from our polls to be included in a Leaderboard. Example: I have a PPT with several review questions and preknowledge questions that are not in a Competition. At the end, it would be nice to recognize those individuals that had the most correct without having to move to the reports.

  11. Would it be possible to save different branded response page / usernames under my profile

    Would it be possible to save different branded response page / usernames under my profile as I create a few different ones for different divisions of a client and presently have to delete the current one and overwrite with a newly created one for every different event?

  12. Clearly indicate when I'm logged in on iOS

    Clearly indicate when I'm logged in on iOS

    I use an iPhone and intend to always be logged in to the app. For the first few weeks, I was taking polls and would check the invisible nav bar on the right to see if I was logged in, then slide it away. Last week, although I was able to answer the poll, I was shocked to see that I was no longer logged in, causing my response to not be recorded in my profile. Had there been some indication on the screen when I was taking the poll that I…

  13. Give instructors in the same group the option to grade each other's questions

    This would allow instructors to have TAs assist with grading, but it should be optional within a group because not all instructor groups would be sharing polls for this purpose.

  14. A better "attendance tracker"

    Please consider a way in the Poll “Configure” options to a) Auto lock after a duration of time and then b) auto report of a particular group (as user (admin) specified) and finally, c) auto clear of results. If all three could be scripted to execute in that sequence, at the intervals specified, there would be some SERIOUSLY added value to using your approach to attendance tracking.

    This would be helpful because most teachers using the approach recommended on your blog are capped at 40 results…it’s yet one more step to have to remember to clear results every time classes…

  15. Unlink title font size from logo size

    It's great that I can upload a logo to a slide, but if I want to change the size of the logo to be small and unobtrusive, I have to also change the size of the font. So either I have a logo the size I want, but small title text, or the font size I want with a big ol' logo image. It would be nice if the logo size and font size weren't linked.

    I’m sorry about the trouble you’ve had with the text sizing. I can empathize with you entirely. Text sizing is just one of those subtly tricky things.

    We’ve had this request before and it is something we’ll definitely look into how we can accomplish. There are some workarounds that you can do with the image itself that you are uploading as a logo. Where we can add some “whitespace” around it to appropriately size. However, that is a somewhat tedious process.

    Another thing that I’ve seen done as a workaround is to upload a Background Image with your logo in the corner and the rest just a white background. That can sometimes cause text to cover the logo but with proper placement and spacing/alignment you can maneuver around that.

    Thank you for the suggestion and bringing this up. We’ll post here as we make progress on these sorts of customization…

  16. Ability to log me out on all devices

    If I log in on someone elses device - whether in the browser, PowerPoint, etc. - and forget to log out, I'd like the ability to log myself out of anywhere I'm logged in. This would improve data privacy/security as I could remove access to see my polls, and ensure that others aren't using my login for their own purposes.

    This would be similar to Spotify's "Log out of everywhere" option, or Google's "Log out of all sessions" ability.

    example: https://support.spotify.com/us/account_payment_help/account_basics/can-i-sign-out-of-my-account-if-im-signed-in-on-another-device/

  17. Add attendance export for Sakai

    Sakai seems to have some ability to import an attendance report. It would be nice if Poll Everywhere could export a compatible file.

  18. Editing participant poll answers as a presenter.

    Possible way for presenters to edit participant's poll answers? Often times, participants request a change of Poll answers simply because they selected the incorrect answer for a graded poll or they had technical difficulties trying to access the Poll. I was just wondering if there's already a feature implemented where the presenter can go in and change the participant's answer or even manually enter in a participant's answer.

    We do not have a way to do this right now. I definitely understand the situation when a participant has legitimate issues and should get a correct score.

    Longer term, I expect that we will create something like this. However, there are some implications around potential cheating and data ownership that just makes it trickier to implement. Mostly this is around editing open ended responses where a bad actor could abuse Poll Everywhere to get a participant in trouble by editing their responses.

    We might be able to do something to edit points/correctness from our reports. Otherwise, for now, I recommend making any necessary edits from wherever you are storing the grades long term.

    Thanks for the idea!

  19. Open Ended Question Categorization

    Hi, I am an independent event manager and I manage a number of medical events across the country. we use your software as a stand-alone program, which works great for our application. Many of our questions are open source questions from the audience being texted into my computer then displayed for later response. During a speakers talks the audience has the ability to randomly pose questions related to that particular presentation. At the end of each presentation, or during a designated QA session we produce, or display the questions for the faculty to review and answer. It works great. The…

  20. Provide the APK file for foreign Android platform users who do not have access to Google Playstore

    I was recently using your poll in China. We encountered a difficulty for Android users because they are not able to download the android app because they are not able to access Google playstore. As you know Google is blocked in China. We also tried to locate the APK file but it could not be installed. While the web interface can be used, I think we all agree that the app is much more convenient. Is there a solution that you can provide to allow Android based phone users in China to have access to the app?
