  1. Support split view on iPad app

    Please support split view on the iPad! 8 currently project my iPad to a classroom and use the app Perfect Browser, which has a video out mode wherein the iOS interface is hidden and only the content of the web page is shown. If PE supported split view, I could keep it on the right side of my iPad screen and see poll results without showing them to the students.

    I sincerely hope the PE developers can add this!

  2. Add sound to the countdown timer

    Can you put in some sound options when the countdown timer gets to 00:00. I have a couple of audience members who are colorblind and several have said that hearing a bell would let them know that time was up, if they weren't looking at the screen

    Is your audience generally responding by the web on their phones or are they responding by text message?

    I ask because we have a longterm goal (hopefully sometime this year) to add the countdown time to the web response page on the audience’s phone and to have this timer work with screenreader and other accessibility devices. Do you think that would solve the problem?

  3. Flush participants off a keyword

    I would like the ability to force every participant off of a keyword. We use P.E. at events where we have multiple meetings (or classes if you are an educator) starting at the same time. The moderator (or teacher) tells the audience to log in to the keyword - say SessionA - at the start of the program.

    We have an open ended poll open to send questions directly to the moderator. What shows up is not only "SessionA" from people who were still logged into the keyword, but also "SessionB", C, and D from people who are in another…

  4. Presenters would like to use the PollEv Mobile app remote function with the Mac Presenter

    At the moment the remote functionality of the mobile app only works with the Windows Presenter. I have seen an uptick in requests to use the Mobile app remote with the PollEv Mac presenter. Posting this to gage interest of our users.

    I remember when we released the Remote Control for our Windows PollEv Presenter that we looked into getting it working with Mac and there were some complications with how PowerPoint for Mac detects some of our poll settings. If there’s interest though, we can definitely look into the problem with fresh eyes and see what we can do

  5. LaTeX equations and AMSMATH package

    LaTeX equations are truly awesome! However, most math geeks auto-include the package amsmath. More symbols. Better display. Is that possible? Right now we can use PollEverywhere for most Calculus, Linear Algebra and Diff Eq courses, but "amsmath" would mean we could use PollEV in every undergraduate math course and even most grad level courses, too.

  6. Give participant feedback on the correctness of their answer

    Would like for my students to receive a message about whether or not their response was correct for graded responses.

    All of our paid education plans come with a feature called Custom Reply Message. This can be used to send your students an automatic message after they’ve submitted their response. It won’t automatically determine if they chose the correct answer, but you can set it up like this:

    “You chose choice The correct answer was A”

    Do you think this would work for you?

    Other than that, students can check their Response History after class to review questions they’ve responded to and that will tell them of there correctness. Just send them to polleverywhere.com/my/results

    More details on custom reply messages here:

  7. Create a timer for surveys that limits the amount of time a participant has to respond.

    I have heard this idea from a couple of educators and corporate trainers. Everyone is very excited about our new survey tools, and they would like to be able to use Surveys to make timed assessments. I think this would be a serious undertaking given how surveys work currently, but it would be cool!

  8. Hide a poll

    Sometimes I try different question types with the same question. I don't want to delete them or move them out of the group, but I also don't want them to show up when I am presenting and going through the polls in order. It would be great to be able to hide or mute the poll in the group (similar to the way you can hide a slide in PowerPoint).

    Interesting. Have you tried presenting Poll Everywhere from our PowerPoint integration? I ask because our PowerPoint integration does support hidden slides, so if you are presenting with PowerPoint that may be the way to go

    Otherwise, we’ll definitely keep an eye out for any similar requests and see if we can’t come up with something for you! We’re just always concerned with trying to keep our application as simple and easy to use as possible, so new poll settings are always dangerous

  9. Allow anonymous poll with no responses to be changed

    It would be nice to be able to change an anonymous poll to an identified poll so long as the poll does not have any responses (e.g. it is still in creation phase).

    Yeah, I understand that one. I know I’ve clicked the anonymous button and then later regretted it as well. We try to put a scary pop up warning, but it still happens.

    It’s difficult for us to convert a poll back because we take our anonymity very seriously. Once that warning is accepted we immediately scramble any responses to that poll and then put a lock that prevents the poll from recording the name/email of any future responses. We’re literally destroying where we would store the identifiable information for the poll and to convert back we’d have to re-create those tables which is a tricky and slow process. And, we’re hesitant to open a way for someone to hack that information.

    That said, certainly if we get a lot of requests for this we will work on it. In the meantime, I just recommend being careful with the anonymous button…

  10. Please consider adding a New Zealand texting number (0064)

    Yes we can text to the Aussie number, but my students will not be able to afford the international txting fee for an 0061 number.

    We’re always on the look out for new phone numbers. If our two Australian based numbers are all causing international texting fees we’ll definitely be on the look out with our sms providers for a local number.

    Unfortunately, they don’t have one just yet but we’ll be first in line when it becomes available.

  11. Accessibility improvement.

    I have been sat on the website for 2 days after trawling through the user guide, attempting to get it to work. It is really difficult to move from poll page to testing and editing. It is also confusing to understand how to activate the poll. Really frustrating system.

  12. Create a "MATRIX" poll

    Please create a matrix poll: You ask a question, have several items for which the quesiton should be answered individually in separate rows, and then have a predefined set of possible answers, where the user is asked to respond in each row. It would be perfect if you can define, how many answers are allowed in each row. This matrix could be used for ratings (e.g. "rate these 5 presentations on scale 1 to 10" with 10 different answer options; "rate these 5 movies on a scale from "poor" - "okay" - "nice" - "great") or other questions like "how…

    Yeah, I am with you 100% on that Mike. I can imagine how time consuming it must be if you are settings a scheduled lock/unlock time on multiple polls. Ugh, I feel your pain on that.

    There are reasons why we don’t have everything under edit multiple, although none of them couldn’t be overcome today. Most of those reasons are legacy code as we have grown and changed things over time. Edit multiple just hasn’t had a good fix in a while.

    The biggest hurdle right now is design. It’s tricky to have so many settings on that page/view without overwhelming people. I have a few ideas that I’m going to toss out to our design experts and see what they get.

    Hopefully we’ll have a good fix for you soon. In the meantime, I’m sorry to say you’ll need to set those one at a time. Let us know…

  18. Provide ability for groups to review reports in class and remotely without having to PDF

    I have created a (five poll) survey and hope to have a relatively large (500) number of people take the survey.

    Then I plan to run at least three different reports.

    After that, I will break my class of thirty into groups of three to five and what I would like to do is to have the students, in their groups and via their Chromebooks, access the reports in order to be able, as a group, to come up with some conclusions.

    For now, it seems that the only way I can do this is to run the report, then…

  20. Integration with ProPresenter.

    It would be great to have an add in for the program ProPresenter on MAC. Very useful and widely used presentation software. Same idea as powerpoint an keynote. Thank you for considering. I'd love to see this available in the near future if at all possible.

    Hi Greg,

    I believe the last few releases of ProPresenter have a web page viewer included. You can present your polls from the web there, the same way as if you were using our website to directly present your polls.

    You can directly navigate to the poll chart, hover over the top right of the chart, and click “enable fullscreen” to start presentation mode.

    We also support PowerPoint and Keynote integration with our Mac App.

    Give ProPresenter a try and let us know how it works out
