    Well, unfortunately our Web Voting Widget isn’t getting as much use as it used to and we aren’t planning on adding more functionality to it. If you do not want to display the results → I recommend using an iFrame to embed the shareable response link. That link is available on the same /embed page that you found the widget.

    If you have any trouble getting an iFrame set up, please feel free to reach out to our Support Team at support@polleverywhere.com

    We’re happy to help you out.

  2. 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…

    Unfortunately, we do need to continue to charge for our service. The only way we could make the product more free would be to turn it into selling people’s data and ad advertisements which is not the type of company we want to run.

    That said, we do have a Free version of our product that will let you create as many questions as you like and receive up to 25 responses per question. It’s great for a smaller audiences

  4. 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…

    We’ve actually spoken about this a little bit in the past around the office. It just comes up from time to time. Unfortunately, it’s very important for us to build features with the ability to scale because we also have many people who can use our polls for hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of people. And, there just aren’t enough colors for it.

    Thank you for the request! We appreciate the ideas coming in.

  6. Change wording from anonymous to confidential

    Requesting feature on behalf of Alex Hill (akhill@uw.edu). He shared that anonymous isn't really the correct terminology since once a poll is set to "make responses anonymous," we keep a record of the responses in our database. The wording should be changed to confidential instead.

    Well, our anonymous functionality is pretty anonymous. It’s completely anonymous for the presenter or the person who created the poll and we will not give out your information even when asked as per our terms of service.

    Furthermore, even if you are a fully registered participant → anonymous responses are stored differently in our database, specifically they are not directly tied to your participant record. So, while one of our engineers could tie a response back to a registered participant or phone number (if you replied by text message) this is only possible for 90 days. And, it takes a bit off effort on our side. So, even I or one of our customer support representatives would not be able to identify you.

    Basically, we would only go through the effort of these database queries if the police requests us to.

    I agree that “confidential” is slightly more accurate. Those…

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I understand the desire for this and it would be really convenient, however this is something that we just cannot do. Overriding the standard internet browser or slideware behavior and shortcuts is really dangerous and can cause a lot of bugs, as well as hurting our accessibility standards.

  8. Correlate responses after anonymous setting?

    A survey I created was originally set to anonymous. However, following the responses received, a colleague wanted the results correlated by attendees. Is there anyway to re-identify without creating a new poll?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, there is no way to correlate the responses to anonymous questions and we do this intentionally.

    When we say “Anonymous” we mean anonymous. If you have a question earlier in the presentation/survey that is identifiable such as “what is your name” and we correlate an anonymous response with this, then we are no longer anonymous. There’s just too many dangers and ways it could be abused and we owe our company’s success on both the Presenter and the Participant. Both must be protected. It’s the American Way.

    So, while we understand where you and your colleague are coming from and you probably have only the best intentions, we just can’t rely on it.

    Let us know if there’s anything else though! We appreciate the feedback and ideas

  9. Have a QR code for each poll,

    In addition to poll web link, add a QR code somewhere on the poll page. In this case the respondents can choose to directly scan the QR code and go to the poll instead of typing in the web address themselves. A QR code for downloading the poll everywhere app may be added as well, for promoting purpose of course.

    We agree that it would be very cool to do this but there are just so many other availability and calendar type applications that it’s tough for us to compete with people who do this as their whole business like calendly.com

    If you want to use our service to help determine availability or meeting times, I recommend using our Clickable Image poll to do this. Basically, you can load an image that includes a few different dates/times or is a full weekly calendar itself. Your audience than then load the page and drop a pin to display which times will work for them.

    You can also do the same thing with a multiple choice poll if you have a few discrete/specific times in mind. We do this ourselves here in the office to schedule happy hours

  13. PO purchase option

    I just worked to get permission to pilot your services this year, but my school can't purchase with credit cards or reimburse me for purchases. Since you don't take PO's for less than $500, I am going to find another method to pilot for formative assessment. I just wanted to give you feedback for future policy planning. Bummer.

    I understand. It’s like relationships…we’ve just been burned before.

    This is one of the reasons we offer a free version of our service that has no time limit (although their is a limit to the maximum number of responses). You can sign up and test out all of our basic features here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/signup

    Otherwise, please contact Sales@PollEverywhere.com – we try to stay flexible for any pilot programs.

  14. Bring back the Question Library!

    You have removed the "Question Library" which is one of the main reasons that I signed up for a paid account. I understand your contract with Boundless expired but this was a very useful feature that should be replaced with something similar.

    We do have our own “question library” where you may search for other Poll Everywhere users who have created polls with us at https://www.polleverywhere.com/polls

    It’s searchable to find other people who have made public polls with similar topics. We’re always on the lookout for new partnerships like Boundless and we’ll be sure to jump on the first one that will work for us. Until then, polleverywhere.com/polls is what I recommend

  15. Replace "Log in " button on mobile device.

    Replace "Log in " button on mobile device. Many voters get hung up on the log in especially if the polls do not require log in. Develop a question that can act as a log in (collecting the data and syncing it to future responses.. Similar to the demographic questions on Bing Pulse.

    We do offer Custom Design for the Poll Ev page so you can customize the web response page where we can remove the Log In button from your response page. It comes with most of our Enterprise and Institution-Wide Plans and can be purchased on an ad-hoc basis. Send us an email to Sales@PollEverywhere.com if you are interested

    Otherwise, this feature is currently just so necessary for all of our customers which require registered participants that it’s not reasonable for us to remove the button entirely.

    I love polleverywhere. I use it all the time. I have a paid subscription. can I print this report ? when I print, it prints only 2 pages even though it has many pages. It would be nice if I can save it into a pdf format. Can I dowload the info to word or excel?

    Could you include the option where poll should close as soon as 1st person answers like in Jeopardy & it should show the name of the person who answered? I know you might be thinking I am asking for too much.

    We do not have an integrated way to print our reports to a PDF just yet, but we do plan on building this. In the meantime, you can print the reports with your browser or computer itself. Here’s how:

    1.Right click on the report.
    2.Click “print”
    3.Then under Destinations click “change”
    4.Under Local Destinations select “Save as PDF

    Otherwise, we do have a way to export the polls to .CSV (Excel). You can see the details for how here: https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/153772-can-i-get-the-results-of-my-poll-in-a-spreadsheet

    Finally, we do have a full PowerPoint integration for Mac. You can see the details for how here: https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/487574-mac-how-do-i-insert-or-embed-my-polls-in-powerpo

    We do get this request from time to time. And, I promise we understand. But, there’s some reasons for this. One of the reasons for the wordiness is that we want to draw the eye of the participant to the instructions and shorter phrases can have people miss it. Another reason is when we were founded this is how SMS worked! Back in 2009 you had to enter the body of the message and then the number. And, while this convention is mostly gone it is dangerous to change such an integral part of how we work. In short, there’s a legacy for it.

    There are a few recommendations I always give to folks who do not like our instructions. First, a reassurance that most concerns are handled by the presenter verbally describing the process in much more detail that we can do in writing. Next, if you are using…

    Ahh, yup I understand the desire. We tried this back in the day with our short lived Dial Test. It just really did not work out for us. It isn’t what we do.

    If you are interested in some real-time and general feedback we recommend either an Open Ended Poll to get some comments and feedback or a Multiple Choice Poll with a few simple answer choices to see how the audience is doing.
