  1. Save amount of time in the timer per question

    It would be helpful to be able to set the timer for each individual question before hand, rather than having to set it up manually while presenting.

    Once the timer is set to a specific amount of time in a question, it should be saved so that next time that question is shown, the timer is already set to what you wanted.

    Also, there should be an option so that the timer starts counting off as soon as the question is shown.

    This would be helpful when you need to time multiple questions with each question requiring a specific time…

  2. Image name on multiple choice question for results purposes

    When you create a multiple choice question and there are pictures to choose from, the name change.
    Once you have finished the poll and want to analyze the results, there is no name of the picture the participant has chosen.

  3. color option for "click on location" question

    The green markers don't show up well on some of my images. Seems like this color should be a changeable feature.

  4. Make it work!

    I have been a subscriber for a long time and have used this App in many presentations. I am ready today to pull the plug on Polleverywhere and cancel my subscription. Today in a crucial moment/presentation it failed miserably. I needed the answers from the audience to be displayed to use these answers to guide me and my audience through my presentation. Of the #7 questions I made to the audience, only in one the answers showed up. I could not see the live display. All the answers are there as I can now see them in my polls in…

  6. Disable duplicate responses by default

    By default, any participant can send the same answer several times. The total count then makes no sense.

    For example, to the question "What do you at night?"
    one can answer several times "I play guitar."
    While in most cases we need them to send each answer only once.

    We need the default behaviour to allow any answer to be sent only once per participant.

  7. 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.

    We have just added the ability to change the colors of the Pins for our clickable image polls. Here’s how:

    1. Open the clickable image poll you want to edit
    2. click the Visual Settings button on the top right of the poll display
    3. expand the menu titled “Clicks received”

    You will then have the option to change the default pin color, the color for correct answers, and the color for incorrect answers.

    Click ‘Save’ to apply the new colors.

  9. QR Code for audience log in

    I have used this for many small & large audiences. It takes too much time for audiences to enter the link on their device and access the survey.
    A unique QR code would save a lot of time & increase user accessibility.

    We have added a new Beta feature to add some support for QR codes. It is fully functional and supported, but remains in beta because it does not currently work for Competitions.

    You can enable this feature here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/labs

    Once the QR Code feature is enabled for you account when you open a poll you should see a small QR code next to the response instructions on the chart. If you click this QR icon → a QR code will expand to show on the entire screen.

    Anyone in your audience may then use any standard QR code reader on their phones to navigate to your pollev.com/username page

    Furthermore, you may download the image for your QR code and add that as a slide in PowerPoint if you have your own instructions for the audience. You can download this image at polleverywhere.com/profile/edit

    Hope this helps!

  10. Add response counter to powerpoint polls

    Please add a counter indicating how many responses have been submitted during a live powerpoint poll. I'm constantly having to ask 'is anyone still answering?', instead of having the screen display the count letting me know when I approach the number of people participating.

    We do have a setting to display the Total Result count on the live chart. It can be enabled from our visual setting menu, but we do have this off by default. Here’s how:

    1. Navigate to the poll you want to show the result count for
    2. Click on the grey Visual Settings button (with the paintbrush icon) to the top right of the poll
    3. Inside visual settings, scroll to the bottom under Total Results count
    4. Click the checkbox for “Show on chart” to display the counter on the poll

    This will display a counter on the bottom right of the chart.

  11. Make it possible to use Poll Everywhere for regular surveys, like survey monkey.

    I would rather have one platform for all surveys, instead of one for live surveys and one for traditional surveys. Why not add "survey money-like" functionality to Poll Everywhere?

  12. Clickable image pins

    Ability to make the pins larger or smaller, or change the color. They can all be uniform, but the ability to customize for your poll. We found the green pin difficult to see against the blue map. Thanks for considering!

  14. Automatically set Polls to Hide

    Is there any way to make the default setting for the Polls the Hide option instead of the Show option? For most instructors, they want the students to respond independently first before showing the graph. Showing the graph by default sways the student responses. I know I can edit this setting once the polls have been created, but it is just one extra step in an already multi-step process that would save me a bunch of time.

    We’ve added two ways to hide results by default when presenting activities. The first is for our slideware integrations (PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides). The second is a user-wide default account setting for all newly created activities to default to the instructions view.

    For details about slideware, check out our support article here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/presenting/activity-flows

    To make hiding results the default for activities, log in and visit https://www.polleverywhere.com/profile/activity_settings/edit. Then select “Show the instructions” under “Show instructions or results”.

  15. 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

  16. Allow students to change (delete and resubmit) their answers in open-ended polls

    Currently, for multiple choice or clickable image polls, students can clear their response and re-submit. We would like to be able to do that with open-ended (specifically Word Cloud) types. The idea is that as participants change their answers, the cloud would morph as some responses shrink and others grow with the changes to the audience's understanding.

  17. Alt Text

    This actually is an accessibility issue... Not sure if I'm missing something but it doesn't appear that I enter alt-text for images?

    Thanks for the video. We do have a way to add alt-text to uploaded images, but it needs to first be enabled. We do not have it on by default. Here’s how to get it:

    1. click the Gear icon on the top left of the page and select Settings
    2. select the Features lab tab on the left of settings. This will take you to polleverywhere.com/labs
    3. then click the checkbox for Image Alt-Text and save your change

    Now, when you go to create or edit a poll question that has an image → you should be able to enter alt-text for the image. This will be read by screenreaders.

  18. Emojis

    It would be fun to be able to use emojis to answer polls. So instead of using "one word" for the word cloud feature, using "one emoji." I think with the increased usage of cell phones, employees use emjois often to describe how they are feeling and can make for a fun time.

    I hear this is in the works, but being able to have groups of polls INSIDE other group would make managing hundreds of polls much easier to navigate and deal with. THANKS!!
