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.
As a user of Poll Everywhere, I want to be able to delete my account if I decide that I don't want to use this product anymore.9 votes
You can now delete your account from My settings. Learn more here: https://support.polleverywhere.com/hc/en-us/articles/1260803324650-Delete-your-account
This actually is an accessibility issue... Not sure if I'm missing something but it doesn't appear that I enter alt-text for images?1 vote
Thanks for the video. We do have a way to add alt-text to uploaded images, but it needs to first be enabled. We do not have it on by default. Here’s how to get it:
1. click the Gear icon on the top left of the page and select Settings
2. select the Features lab tab on the left of settings. This will take you to polleverywhere.com/labs
3. then click the checkbox for Image Alt-Text and save your change
Now, when you go to create or edit a poll question that has an image → you should be able to enter alt-text for the image. This will be read by screenreaders.
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.2 votes
This is currently available. You will need to allow Change Answer for the open ended polls to let students perform this action. You can find that setting to the right of the poll, under Response Settings
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
It would be fun to be able to use emojis to answer polls. So instead of using "one word" for the word cloud feature, using "one emoji." I think with the increased usage of cell phones, employees use emjois often to describe how they are feeling and can make for a fun time.1 vote
We do! All of our polls (including word clouds) have full emoji support. If someone replied to a word cloud with the a smile emoji, that emoji will grow in size each time it is submitted. We talk about it in this blog post with more detail here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/emoji-quiz-online/
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:
Hope this helps!
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!
We would like it if sub-users can be a part of more than one group. We have some faculty who teach graduate and undergraduate classes, and need to copy polls from other undergrad and graduate faculty. Currently users can only be a part of one group. Can you please change this so that users can be a part of multiple groups simultaneously?
Presenters on your Poll Everywhere account can now be members of multiple Teams! Learn more here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/shared-activities/teams
Is there any way to make the default setting for the Polls the Hide option instead of the Show option? For most instructors, they want the students to respond independently first before showing the graph. Showing the graph by default sways the student responses. I know I can edit this setting once the polls have been created, but it is just one extra step in an already multi-step process that would save me a bunch of time.41 votes
We’ve added two ways to hide results by default when presenting activities. The first is for our slideware integrations (PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides). The second is a user-wide default account setting for all newly created activities to default to the instructions view.
For details about slideware, check out our support article here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/presenting/activity-flows
To make hiding results the default for activities, log in and visit https://www.polleverywhere.com/profile/activity_settings/edit. Then select “Show the instructions” under “Show instructions or results”.
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!

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
There should be an option in the gradebook report to display what percentage of the people who answered each question got it right instead of only what percentage of the total participants, whether or not they answered that particular question.1 vote
We can do this today actually! Our gradebook report will give the avg participation and grade for each student or poll, as well as collectively over all of the poll questions in the report. These numbers will be calculated only when a correct answer is set on the poll questions. And, our gradebook report will be available on most of our paid plans.
You can see some more details about our reports here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/reporting#gradebook
Help! I cannot get the chrome extension to integrate a poll into google slides!8 votes
Unfortunately, Google had unexpectedly taken down our extension from the Chrome Web Store. We made some changes to our architecture and Google has allowed our extension back to the store on April 5th. It should be back up on running now.
So, sorry for the trouble!
I recently published an article about using online questions effectively in broadcast university courses, using Poll Everywhere as my preferred tool. Feel free to share as you deem useful on your social media, website, and/or directly with clients.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hey! Thanks Chris! This is very cool. I’ll share it with our marketing team
When inserting multiple choice questions in the old poll creator, I could simply tap the tab key to move the cursor to the next answer field. Now I have to either tab three times and press space (to click on the + button) or tap tab four times (if a blank option is already there). The fact that this is more complicated, and that my action depends on whether or not an existing blank choice is present, is frustrating.1 vote
This has been taken care of! You can now use the tab key to move between fields with the new poll creator!
