How can we improve Poll Everywhere?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. 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…

  2. Expand 'Wait screen' across multiple slides to enable more event details to be shared

    Having the option to make this a multi-tab or multi-slide holding page to enable Event planners to share more details of the event e.g. the venue, the dress code, the agenda. For a number of events, we work with an agency to produce a web-portal that enables delegates to register pre-event, and shares with them details of the venue, venue location and other key details about the event. If Poll Everywhere had a feature that enabled you to share more information on the Welcome page, (as well as a pre-event registration feature which I have suggested separately) it would eradicate…

  3. Pre-event Delegate Registration 'poll' activity

    Event planner would activate the poll pre-event that would push the Registration page to all delegate devices who have previously been informed of the ‘Presentation’ or Event code. e.g. (Comms sent internally by the Event Planner) “To register your attendance for this year’s conference, please go to the Poll Everywhere app and enter the event code ‘Conf2020’ where registration is now LIVE.”

    The activated Registration polling activity could be similar in format to a ‘Survey’ and would include-
    First Name: (text)
    Surname: (text)
    Job Title: (text)
    Area of business: (text)
    Email Address: (text)
    Contact Number: (text)
    Method of transport to…

  4. Allow branching in surveys, so I don't need to use SurveyMonkey anymore!

    Allow branching in the non-live surveys, so there can be follow-up questions posed to only those who respond in a certain way to a question. Thanks!

  6. RAFFLE (for collecting attendance data)

    Students submit their name (and possibly major and email address as desired for data collection). Then a randomizer selects one entry as the raffle prize winner.

  7. Group competitions

    Divide the participants (or let them choose) in groups so they can compete against groups on the leaderboards rather than individually. Similar to the option for this in Turningpoint.

    Group based competitiveness is increasingly applied within (higher) education.

    Personally I wish to engage with my students playfully without compounding on the individual pressures which fuels the fear of failing, avoiding of risk and the negative aspects of performativity and goal-oriented behaviour which are typically already over-cultivated in (higher) education.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Add up the results of teams from a segmented quiz

    It would be great if you could show the results of say 4 or more multiple choice questions by team? Having created the segmenting question, put the audience into teams and then run the multiple choice questions, it would be great if you were able to display the total results of questions on screen? I think it should be possible to get the information from a grade book so I am hoping it would not be too difficult to achieve?

  11. Intermediate pricing option

    The pricing structure is not good for organizations that need occasional, medium-group polling. It is such a leap between 25 participants for free and 700 participants for higher costs. It would be helpful to have an option that mimics the Engage version but with fewer participants (say 100) and a lower cost.

  12. Increase the size of the marker on the Emotion Scale

    The marker on the Emotion Scale is to small to see. Can the size of it be increased? Or is there someway that a tally can be seen under each "smile/frown" so that the audience can see how many of them are happy/sad/angry etc.

  13. A bit more freedom on username choice for entry level plans

    As soon as we have used our username (shared with audience) we are forced, in order to be sure nobody can see what we are preparing next, to generate a new name because some user may randomly try to connect again and, with some luck access questions when we are doing some test…

    Would it be possible, as soon as you start to pay, to give a bit of freedom in the username selection? Maybe, for basic account (like the one I use) forcing one word but give freedom on number?

    Another way could be to add an option who…

  14. When downloading gradebook, ALL data must be shown

    In particular, when more than one answer is allowed, all those answers should be separate columns in the gradebook. right now most of the data is simply not downloaded. Also, the value someone gave needs to be downloaded, not just points, so we can see the free text. This might be a different type of report from a gradebook - the goal is a file with one row per respondent and one column per idea that includes ALL the data (numeric and text) gathered in the poll.

  15. Random Question order

    I have a classroom of students who sit in pairs. They have a final exam consisting of a set number of questions, that each student gets. At the moment the local exam server we run presents all questions in a random order to the students and allows the students to put problematic questions back in the pool for a later attempt.
    This randomisation ensures that the students are answering each question to the best of their ability with no likelihood of being swayed by the student sitting beside them. It limits cheating or collaboration too.

  16. Bug in Clickable Image

    If a user clicks too close to the top edge of the image their response is out of bounds and is placed at the top left (bottom left on mobile) and it is marked as correct even if it is not inside the region it is meant to be correct in.

  18. Integrate with Microsoft Teams as an app

    There is a strong need to be able to control the forum of people voting/comment but doing so in an anonymous way. There is no great way to do this in Microsoft Teams and the only apps available that support this are TinyPulse and other competitors. Microsoft Teams is important because it's used in enterprise scenarios and already can control access to various groups etc.

    I use PollEverywhere regularly with my organization of almost 100 people. Being able to extend it's usage to garner feedback asynchronously and anonymously outside of meeting rooms and presentations would really take it to the…

  20. Allow Survey to be Group or have a separate Category for Survey

    Currently, all surveys cannot be grouped otherwise it cant be shared and reside in UNGROUP. This can be messy if there are a lot of survey or polls in the UNGROUP.

    Even though I close to hide the Q, it does not remember the setting. when login to polleverywhere all the survey Q are open up.

    Suggest allowing Survey to be Group and nested in another category called SURVEY. It would be neater and easier to find.
