Ideas

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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.

      • Counter of number of participants that have given at least one answer

        The counter shows how many answers received; I want a counter that tells me how many participants have given at least one answer (my multiple choice questions have multiple correct answers)--so I know when most people have entered a response. I had this feature with Turning Point and it was critical to class pacing and encouragement to respond--everyone can see how many people have (not yet) responded

        • Voters count rather that votes count

          I often allow voters to vote for more than one item. When I do so, I can see how many votes have been cast, but not how many people have voted. I want to be able to see the latter, because I want to know when most people have cast a vote. This is impossible to tell from the tally of votes, since some people cast multiple votes

          • Re the "empty the poll" button

            1. The button for emptying the poll is right next to the one for locking
            the poll. When I lock the poll I am usually in a hurry (like in a
            class), and I made a mistake hitting the wrong button (and the buttons
            look similar enough when the instructor is in a hurry). I think it would
            be best for the emptying button to be in a separate place (like at the
            bottom where the recycle bin is usually located).

            2. If emptying the poll is undoable (until saved?), that would be a
            great feature to have, I think.

            • Export Poll Questions to CSV

              Good day. I am posting the following as a suggestion to exporting poll questions to a CSV file.

              At this time, one can export poll questions as PowerPoint Slides or Screenshot. Would it be possible to provide the option to download the questions to a CSV file? This option would help faculty who would like to archive the previous semester questions, freeing up the Polls area to not have that many poll groups. When the need arise for those questions for a future semester, they can then use the Import CSV option to upload the poll questions.

              Maybe an Export…

              • Change colour (and maybe design) of the clickmarker in clickable pictures

                The click markers ind clickable pictures are green. It should be possible to change the colour to fit the background.

                Secondly it could be an option to pick between different designs of Clickmarkers.

                  Currently, this feature is only available through web responses. It should be an option for text responses as well.

                            • Hiding/Showing results when using PollEV Presenter

                              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.

                              • Response messages should be color-coded (green for correct response, red for incorrect response).

                                I've enabled the 'Send Reply Message' option and added a custom response message to my polls. Respondents are replying via their web browser, not text messages. The polls are set to grade incoming responses.

                                By default, the response message that appears at the top of the respondent's screen is green. However, the message should be a different color to indicate a correct or incorrect response to the respondent (i.e. green for correct, red for incorrect).

                                At a minimum, the default color for the response message should be changed to a color other than the default green because, in the current…

                                  Once a question is created it would be ideal if the poll type could be edited directly rather than having to delete the question and recreate it. I don't understand why this isn't an option currently.

                                    • icons, lock,activate, etc together and visible on poll page with timer visible under icons.

                                      Icons and timer should be together so mouse activation easier.

                                        • Cobweb Diagrams

                                          Hi guys,
                                          have you considered offering a cobweb diagram as a way of displaying multi-dimensional responses? I would find that extremely helpful.
                                          Cheers,
                                          Michael
