  1. Resend Participant Invite

    We would like to be able to re-send invitations to imported participants.
    Participants can be sent info to complete their registration through the participant import process, but there is no way to re-send the "complete your registration email" to them once they have been imported.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow multi-line textual responses

    The "open-ended" response type allows arbitrary textual response, but only one line of text. For complex answers, including answers that may including tables or diagrams, one line is not sufficient. I would like to request an option (perhaps presented to the user as an "allow long answers" checkbox on the open-ended response type) that will allow the user to insert newlines and construct multiline responses.

  6. Respond directly to written poll submissions individually in writing, using the poll, visible to all

    I would like there to be a kind of poll (or a modification to the existing Q&A or Open Ended polls) that I can use as a presenter which would allow me to type back responses to the audience submissions that come in! (Example: my pinned Q & A poll is a way for me to let students ask me questions during lecture. Some of them, I answer out loud during lecture. Others, I would like to type a response back to the student for everyone with access to the poll to be able to see.) Ideally, I'd like to…

  7. Add existing questions to a new competition

    I was surprised that the questions for competitions need to be added one by one. Come on folks! We need to be able to call on a library of our existing questions and incorporate those into a competition (then edit them if needs be) - in addition to adding new questions if needs be.

    Starting a new competition then adding questions one by one by one isn't great!

  8. Nested Questions

    Nested questions based on how an initial question is answered.

    For example, question 1 is a yes or no question. If the respondent answers yes, they're brought to a follow-up question (question 2); if their answer is no, they're brought to a different follow-up (question 3).

    Once those are responded to, the answers can be merged into one poll for display.

  9. Move the previous and next buttons slightly so that they do not block the total results tally.

    A great way to use poll everywhere on a very quick basis is to split the screen and have images or questions open in one app and have the poll everywhere open in a second window. However, unless you are in full screen mode, the previous and next buttons block the total number so you can see when your audience has completed the survey. This ought to be an easy fix.

  10. Integrate with the LearnUpon LMS

    We use a learning management system (LMS) to track our trainings, including quizzes and results, and we would like to use the Report function on Poll Everywhere to log the results of polls (quizzes) for each individual that takes our training courses.

  11. 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!

  12. Track time to submit a response

    It would be great to have a feature to measure how long it takes for someone to submit a response to a poll question. We are thinking of it in the context of a clickable image poll where we would ask the participant to find something in the image and see how long it takes them to do so.

    That could be cool and an interesting piece of data for folks. I’m not sure how many people would really be interested though.

    Do you think it would work if we only displayed this on the CSV (Excel) download our reports? We have limited space available on the web view and I don’t think we can fit this without sacrificing a lot.

    Otherwise, the closest thing we can easily track is the amount of time that has elapsed since the poll was made active until the response was received. This won’t always be accurate because a presenter could activate/deactivate and re-activate a single poll question during a presentation but should generally be accurate.

    Would that be enough for y’all?

  13. Keynote for iOS Integration

    I'm increasingly doing presentations in keynote on my iPhone with a HDMI output. I'd really like to be able to use poll everywhere in this setup. Shame it doesn't seem possible.

    Well, unfortunately Apple just doesn’t really make this possible for us right now. We are able to integrate with the PowerPoint iOS app by using the Office 365 Store which is a built-in app store for PowerPoint, however Apple’s Keynote does not have a similar store.

    Until they release something like that or offer a public API we can build an integration off of, it just is not feasible for us. We’ll jump on the train once it’s possible.

    In the meantime, I would recommend either presenting with our Mac App with Keynote on your macbook, or you can use our Office 365 integration on your iPhone

    https://store.office.com/en-us/app.aspx?assetid=WA104218073&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&clickedfilter=OfficeProductFilter%3APowerPoint&productgroup=PowerPoint&homprd=PowerPoint&sourcecorrid=1b0056ee-27f5-4ee3-9c08-47f1f79f1ffe&homappcat=Education&homapppos=2&homchv=0&appredirect=false

  14. Display multiple results simultaneously

    It would be nice for users to view results from multiple questions simultaneously as they are being voted.

    For instance, users would see multiple results tallied as users are inputting data.

    This is currently possible to do if you have the correct setup. It’s a little complicated though. Here’s what I would recommend if you’re interested:

    - create a Survey. A survey will let your audience respond to multiple poll questions on their own time at your pollev.com/username page. For details: https://blog.polleverywhere.com/create-first-poll-everywhere-survey/

    - then you can use our Live Response Link to show the chart visualization for each individual poll question in the survey. You can find this link by
    clicking on the title of the poll question → click “Present” tab on the top right → select Share → then copy the Live Results Link.

    - you will need to have separate browser windows or monitors to display all of these questions at once. And, there is no way to display multiple questions with our PowerPoint integration (it will cause a conflict).

    All of those polls will automatically update as…

  15. Polls embedded in PowerPoint should save final results

    When I have multiple polls in PowerPoint, after the presentation is done, the results of the last active poll are saved on a slide - because that poll is still considered active. I'd like all the results collected during the presentation to be saved on the slide for each poll so that when I distribute the presentation the static results are show. Simply doing whatever you do with the active poll when the presentation is closed should be applied to the inactive polls too.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    We do have a way to insert a screenshot with the results into PowerPoint. That would be my recommendation for right now. The tricky part for us is that many presenters like to reuse their decks and they want to have the poll slides always be empty and not show results. It’s a tough tradeoff for us.

    But, here’s how you can insert screenshots with the results without leaving PowerPoint for Windows
    1. in PowerPoint, click on the Poll Everywhere tab in the upper right
    2. then click the arrow icon at the bottom of the Insert button
    3. select Screenshot
    4. click the checkbox for the polls you want to get screenshots for
    5. then click Insert Screenshot

    That will insert separate powerpoint slides with screenshots for the selected polls. You may then move those to the desired spot in your deck before sharing.

  16. 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!

  17. Timer is hidden behind Google Slides toolbar

    When using the Poll Everywhere extension within presentation mode of Google Slides, the timer is actually hidden behind the Google Slides toolbar in the lower left corner of the screen. When you attempt to manipulate the timer, you cannot make any changes to it because the Google Slides toolbar covers it every time the cursor gets near the timer. If there were a setting to select the position of the timer or if it could freely be moved, that would solve the problem.

    Hi Heather,

    I’m sorry about the trouble with our Google Slides integration. Thank you for bringing this up to us. This looks like a bug on our end. We should have a fix for this with our next update to our Chrome Extension for Google Slides.

    We’ll send you an email when that is coming out.

    Thanks for bringing this up!

  18. Weighted Poll

    We want to present 10 ideas and have the participants rank them in order of importance. When the participants finish ranking them they will be weighted by order i.e. my first choice is worth 10 points, my second choice is worth 9 points and so on.

    This will so a true ranking poll of what my participants believe to be most to least imporatant

    Well, we do not have a way to do this right now out of the box, but there are a few workarounds.

    The first is that you can use our Ranking Poll which allows folks to drag/drop the answer choices to their selected rank order. This will apply the set number of “points” on the backend depending on the number of answer choices. So, if you have 5 answer choices > then when someone ranks one option first > it gets 5 points > 2nd place gets 4 points and so on…
    - You can see more details for how this works here: https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/612507

    Another option is to use our Multiple Choice Polls to get the same results. You can either have 10 separate multiple choice polls where you can ask them to assign 1-10 points to each of your choices. Or, you can have a single poll question and…

  19. Restricted IP Address -- Taking Attendence

    For using polls to take attendance, it will be great if we can add some restrictions to where they the participants located. So the users most come from certain URL to take the poll.

  20. Simultaneous live polls or at least copy polls between accounts

    My project team has multiple accounts because we sometimes need to have multiple live polls happening simultaneously, and PollEv doesn't support this from one account. Problem is that the polls are now located in multiple places making management of the polls and data tedious, and there isn't a way to duplicate polls from one account to another. There's got to be a better way.
