  1. Duplicate activity from edit page (currently only available in activity list)

    As far as I can tell you are only able to duplicate an activity from the main groups and activities list (available when you click POLLS from the main menu). It would be helpful if you were able to duplicate an activity from the open activity page (where you save the activity). Example, for an election, you run the activity full screen and show results, now you have to remove some of the options and run it again (and again, and again until there is a winner). It is easier to track the order of polls taken by duplicating the…

  2. Only show top 3-5 top performers in competition as opposed to everyone

    This way those who end up last or near the bottom don't feel humiliated.

  3. Use screen name instead of arrow on clickable images.

    On clickable images, use screen names instead of just an arrow or marker that way you have the option of knowing who put what in your activity. Makes it more personable.

  4. Poll type that can record a timestamp of the audience when being shown a video.

    Getting the audience to log time staps on their device and visualize the average of the group. I would then want to compare to the average audience opinion when shown another video.

    Currently you can decide on a left, right, or center placement for your logo next to the title of the activity. You can do this from Visual Settings on the right side of your activity.

    1. Open the Title menu
    2. Scroll down to Logo and Alignment
    3. Select the alignment you prefer

    We’re open to investigating what it would take to add more customization. What placements and sizing do you have in mind?

  6. Add a confirmation to "Clear Responses"

    Because "clear responses" cannot be undone, please add a confirmation button (You've asked to clear responses. Your action cannot be undone. Would you like to continue? <Yes> <No>).

    One can too easily hit the wrong button, which is what happened to me and I lost all of my data. This is something that should have already been in place.

  7. Build a feature for tracking attendence

    We badly need this feature. The current workaround for taking attendance is clunky. May I suggest add a scan QR feature in the Poll Everywhere App? Right now, if I set up a poll, and get the QR code, students scan it, but it will open in a web browser, so they have to re-login. We require our students to stay login in the App.
    Why QR code? We need to use the big screen for the presentation. QR code is easier to be posted in the classroom, and it also forces the students to be onsite, so they can…

    We built the QR code feature as a way for participants to join a presentation quickly without having to type a pollev.com/username.

    We have a feature that is available on all premium education accounts called “Hide activity titles” which was designed to encourage students to physically be in the classroom by not displaying the title of any activity questions on the participant site or app. We encourage using this for attendance and participation credit: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/response-settings/activity-title-blocker

  8. Add Feature for Open Questions

    Enable a feature that requires a poller to respond to a question before moving on to the next one.

  9. Percentage breakdown of combination of answer choices

    In MCQs, where multiple choices are correct, breakdown of individual choices is given. It would be great if % of the responses for particular combination would be shown.

    For eg. if one person voted for A and B choices, and the other person voted for B & C, the breakdown provided is for
    A - 50%
    B-100%
    C-50 %
    It would be nice to have % breakdown of all possible combinations.
    (A,B) - 50%
    (B,C) - 50%

  10. Allow to change usernames in bulk through the admin account.

    This reduces the amount of time having to log in to each user account to adapt to a new url if needed.

  12. Add more languages (e.g. Afrikaans)

    Please add the ability to localise/translate the UI easily into other languages than those currently supported. I'm mostly presenting to an Afrikaans audience, using Afrikaans slides, and would therefore also like to have the instructions, etc. in Afrikaans. This of course, also apply to other unsupported languages. Thank you!

  14. Chat Feature?

    Hi, I see the Chat feature discussion from 2015, but it doesn't fully address my needs. I'd like a CHAT feature in Poll Everywhere (PE) - just like Zoom has. In fact, that's the only reason I use Zoom over PE. The CHAT feature allows webinar participants an opportunity to ask questions, add comments, etc. Please incorporate this to Poll Everywhere. Thank you.

  15. save word cloud

    After "clearing" results for Word Cloud to prepare for next batch of audience responses, I need a way to back to archived version of word cloud and be able to export or download word cloud image.

  16. Include vote results on Pivot Report for "Brainstorm" ideas results

    When downloading results on a .csv file in the Pivot view, we lose the vote results from "Brainstorm" template. Can this be brought in as a field? I know the Exec Summary report right now has them but would be great to have this feature on the Pivot too.

  17. Accumulative point scoring on grading feature

    The option for points scoring to be the sum total based on the options a respondee chooses, so when running a report this is a total figure rather than just one of the choices they selected.

    For example you have a multiple choice question with 4 possible choices, each choice is worth 25 points and respondees are able to response up to 4 times. If a respondee selects 3 options they them accrue a total of 75 pints etc.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. Allow students to submit open-ended answers to a question, and then allow the class to choose the correct answer from the submissions

    For those who have played the game Fibbage, this idea will sound familiar, because it's an ingenious way of making classroom quizzes fun.

    I'd love to see a feature where students would be allowed to submit an answer to a question. After all submissions are received, they appear on the screen in addition to the correct answer. Students must select the correct answer from among all of the submissions.

    What makes this a game and much more fun is that kids are encouraged to submit clever (but ultimately incorrect) "fake" answers to try to fool the other students and prevent…
