We have used Poll Everywhere to run polls using a distributed audience in multiple countries. It would be incredibly useful to have multiple active polls going at the same time. For example, it would be great to have an open ended poll open so our global audience can ask questions, at the same having a word cloud poll to gauge the audience sentiment, and a multiple choice poll to see how they are reacting to certain topics and finally a up/down vote poll to see how they are responding to the presentation of the conference. This is a must have for us. We are currently creating 4 separate URLs for this capability, but it is very confusing to our audience since they now have to manage a video conference, a screen share (for slides) and 4 separate poll URLs. This would also be useful for our live polls in an auditorium. We would like to be able to show 2 or 3 polls at the same time, but, as noted earlier, that requires the use of 4 URLS. Setting up a survey does not seem to help since the feedback cannot be aggregated and displayed very well (or at all).

Option for instructor to turn off ability of students to see correct response to multiple choice survey questions after the survey has de-activated.2 votes
We can now do this! You can see the details for how to never show the correct answer to a poll here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/power-users/hide-correctness-response-history
Allow multiple correct answers in a poll, without allowing multiple votes for the same answer.53 votes
We’ve disabled duplicate responses on Multiple choice activities by default. Thanks for your feedback!
After a web poll link is used, show the voter the real time results and keep refreshing the page like a gamecast app/page does, so the voter can see the real-time results of the poll they just participated in.94 votes
We’re excited to share that on premium plans, presenters can now show the live results of multiple choice activities on participants’ devices. Enable the “participants results chart” under your activity’s response settings to see it in action.
Offer the ability to show percentages, but also include somewhere on the slide, the 'total # of votes', so that presenter can judge as to how much to continue to push the audience to vote.9 votes
You can do this now! Our “show total results” counter is available in our Visual Settings menu (paintbrush icon) on the poll chart. You can see the details for how here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guide#customizing_your_poll
The current segmentation feature doesn't allow me to view a live visual of which team is in the lead. It would be nice if there was a live view that could be embedded into PowerPoint.12 votes
You can now make Competitions! Learn more: https://www.polleverywhere.com/competitions-online
We often have classes that utilize multiple professors. They would like to be able to share polls, powerpoint slide decks, and class data more easily for a single class. Account delegation for at least poll execution rights would probably be able to solve this use-case completely.17 votes
This has been completed! It’s available to all Enterprise and University-wide accounts. See our guide below.
- Can we change the colour of the Total Responses? Currently, it is black by default and cannot change so it is difficult to see on projector when the background is dark.
You can change the text color for Total Results. That is controlled by the “Primary text color” option in our visual settings menu. To change it:
1. open the visual settings menu
2. expand the Color Scheme menu
3. change the Primary Text Color to something with enough contrast for the background.
That Color Scheme section controls just about every color on the chart and it should get you what you need.
For word cloud with dark background, any way to change also the text colour? It’s difficult to see dark texts against dark background.1 vote
Yeah! You can do this today actually. You can set a “range” of colors for the words in the word cloud. We have some details here: https://blog.polleverywhere.com/word-cloud-color-combine-words/
Is it possible to provide a report format where 1) each row is a unique respondent with 2) the "poll title" as a column heading and 3) the corresponding "response" is in the same column as the poll title?1 vote
The “Participant Response History” report should have what you are looking for. However, we display it somewhat differently on the website. If you download/export that report to CSV (Excel) that will have the information in that order.
The CSV export for the Gradebook report is also in a similar format.
Hope this helps!
After using PE a few years, I have lots of polls (quizzes) accumulated, and I pluck out a subset to use each year. Things get rather difficult to organize come end of the term as I have to sift through all the quiz polls to see which ones I gave. Sorting polls by latest response time would solve this issue.1 vote
We do have a way to sort by date, however it is a Labs feature and not on by default. Here’s how you can get it:
1. log into your account
2. click the gear icon to the top right and select My Settings
3. on the left side, click the tab for Features lab
4. enable the Sort Order feature
When you next go to your My Polls page you should be able to change the default sort order for your polls.
Is there a way to delay showing the results of a live poll so as not to influence the audiences answer? Maybe a 10 second delay or a "display answers" button?3 votes
We do not have an automatic way to do this, however we do have a toggle button to show or hide the results. You can see details about how this works here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/presenting/instructions-view
I posted a test "answer" and upvoted it to +1. I went on another account (where it already showed +1) and downvoted it. Instead of correctly going to 0, it went to -1.
The same bug exists going up from -1 towards 0/1.
Please fix this. Thanks!1 vote
Thanks for bringing this up to us! We appreciate it. I’ve brought this up to our QA team and we should have it fixed up.
I use PollEV Presenter and I love it. It would be incredibly helpful to be able to hide or show poll results from within the presentation software (i.e., Keynote, Powerpoint or Google Slides) without having to go into the PollEverywhere site to turn the 'eye' off or on.1 vote
You can actually do this right now from the PollEv presenter. It’s a little hidden though.
When you are in full screen presentation mode and displaying one of our polls, if you hover your mouse over the right side of the screen → you should see several grey control icons appear. One of those will be the Show/Hide ‘eye’ icon. You can toggle it there.
We just hide those buttons (unless you mouse over them) to keep the display prettier
Have you seen our Q&A poll? This is a web only poll type that will allow all participants to see the responses that are submitted on their mobile devices. They can then up or downvote questions/comments/responses that they see. You can read more about it here:

Would like for our institution's sub-users to be able to copy polls from other sub-users that they share a group affiliation with. Currently they can only do this if they have admin permissions.3 votes
Sub-users within the same User Group should now be able to make copies of each others polls. If you go to the the Account Polls page, any poll you see there should be able to be copied into your own account
Hope this helps!
The poll slides are currently downloaded in a 4:3 format. Our slides are typically in a 16:9 format, so it would be great to have this as an option.1 vote
How are you inserting the poll slides into your slide deck? We recently added some handling to our PowerPoint add-in to match the size of the poll slide to the default size of the master slide in the deck. However, this is only when you are inserting from within our PowerPoint add-in, not when you download slides from our website.
I’d recommend trying this:
1. open your powerpoint deck
2. navigate to the Poll Everywhere app and open the modal
3. click the checkmark for whichever polls you would like to insert and click the Insert button
That method should have our poll slides match the size of your own slides. You can read some more about our slideware integration here if you have trouble or more questions: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#presenting-in-a-slideshow
Thanks for the feedback!
Mr. Ashok? was great, thank you for the opportunity to improve my PE skills!!
I am excited to use this with my class in the Fall!!1 vote
Thanks! I’ll let Ashok know
A phone contact number1 vote
We do have an available phone contact number that will appear or any of our paid plans which come with phone support. Otherwise, if you’d like to contact someone from our Sales team before buying, you can go to polleverywhere.com/contact/sales and we can work on setting up a call
It would be nice to be able to grant other people access to some or all of my polls.
1 - If I will have a substitute teaching for me in 1 class, that person would be able to access my polls. So they could activate/deactivate them, and lock/unlock them as needed during the class. Currently guest presenters don't have this ability unless I give them my email password.
2 - For very large classes (300+ students), I could designate a surrogate to help with creating polls and managing grades.1 vote
If you are on a multi-user or university-wide license (and it looks like you are Larry) we do have the ability to add other users access to your polls. Basically, this other user would need to be invited to join the Poll Everywhere account (or get access to a Guest user). They would then log in with this email/password. And, your account administrator then can put the two of you in the same User Group. Each person in a User Group will have access to activate, lock/unlock, and run reports on each other’s polls.
I’d contact your university’s account administrator and have them help get this set up for you. You can read a bit more about User Groups in our support articles here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/account-management/user-groups
