Ideas

  1. Cache Polls, Send Eventually

    The wifi at my university is pretty terrible. However, my professor insists on using poll everywhere for quizzes everyday. Often, I miss a poll question simply because my computer or my phone cannot connect to the internet. I can't send via text because I don't have service. It would be nice if I could send the poll whenever I got wifi. Of course, this will may require a complete rewrite of your backend because a poll completely closes when the instructor decides to. And the code doesn't work afterwards. But maybe if the time the response was cached is before…

  2. 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:

  3. Rank by numbers

    Have the ability to rank poll by numbers instead of drag and drop

    Are you thinking about entering allowing the participants to distribute say 10 or 100 “votes” amongst a few different answer choices as free response? Or, maybe just typing in 1st, 2nd, 3rd… instead of drag/drop?

    There are a lot of different ways to do a ranking poll. We have a few ideas for how to implement each type, so it’d be great to get an idea of what you are interested in.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  4. I would like to suggest a way to make the poll when inserted into a Power Point transparent so you can still see the Power Point background.

    I’m not sure if this will be possible for how we currently implement our powerpoint integration. We currently use some parts of that image to determine the size and placement of our poll on the slide.

    May I ask, why do you want your audience to see the whole background? If it is to match your branding and slide template > would it work if we are able to match your slide template and set that as the background for our poll?

    Otherwise, if you are trying to show an image or something else on the same slide as our poll > you can resize the placeholder image to show part of the slide

  5. Export to SPSS

    Add the option to export all of the response data to .sav format for further analysis in SPSS.

    Interesting idea, I can understand the desire of admins being able to setup or maintain participant groups. Right now, administrators may invite/add participants to an account. And, those participants (students) could then reply to the polls of any presenter on the account as a registered participant. But, Participant Groups are all based on the specific user or presenter.

    It’s certainly possible for us to make some architectural changes around how we store participant groups and the permissions around them, but unfortunately it’s not an easy or quick project. I don’t expect us to create this in the short term unless there’s a lot of interest from the community.

    Thanks for the suggestion though! We appreciate it and will definitely take it under consideration

  7. Report and archived run changes

    Can you please consider adding the functionality to run reports on multiple runs, AND to tease out data from one archived run that should have been split into two?

  8. 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…

  9. Increase font size range on word clouds

    The current appearance seems to have 4 different font sizes in the word cloud. When an idea has 30 matches and others are only at 4 or 5, a MUCH larger font size would better represent that, contrasting the smaller ones. Even a range of 8 sizes would be a significant improvement to determine popularity in a given data set. Ideally I would like a range of 12 or more.

  10. Restrict ability to respond to polls based on the group assignments

    I teach several sections of the same class, and would find it helpful not to have to replicate polls for each of the sections. I have the ability to group the students based on sections, so is there a way to assign a poll to a specific group (instead of having to create new polls and deactive old polls)?

  11. Provide options for uploading grades to Canvas LMS

    When I export grades to Canvas, I'd like some options (checkboxes) to decide what to export. E.g., If I select a group of polls, I would like to send just the participation percent; or a total points for the polls. Often I don't want individual polls in the gradebook, just a score for the day.

  12. Give instructors in the same group the option to grade each other's questions

    This would allow instructors to have TAs assist with grading, but it should be optional within a group because not all instructor groups would be sharing polls for this purpose.

  13. Respondents should be able to see their overall score upon completion of a graded survey

    For example, if the respondent were to complete a five-question graded survey, they should see an 'overall score' page after completing the last question. This page should show their score and possibly allow them to retake the test or at least view the questions/answers.

    Currently, after the end user completes a graded survey, there is no way for them to know what their overall score was. The administrator can view this information in a graded report, but they must manually pull the data and send it to the respondent.

  14. Allow Ranking Polls to have option to show correct answer

    We would like to have participants rank the options based on what they think is the answer and then have the ability to show them the correct ranking order next to their answers.

  16. Remove capitals from PollEv.com/xyz on presentation view

    Audience members sometimes ask if the P & E have to be capitals and iI suspect others unnecessarily type capitals when they first visit PollEv.com/xyz. I'd prefer it to say "Respond at pollev.com/xyz". It's a small thing but every little helps with an audience's first time use.

  17. Add a stopwatch to the poll

    Polls currenlty have the option for a timer only, so this idea could be easy to implement. There are different scenarios where a meeting room needs to time how long they spend on the current slide, for example, discussing and evaluating colleagues, then voting on the "grade". A stopwatch would allow to time without requiring a separate application to run in the forground as a timer, making Polleve a more complete package. Thanks!

  18. Ability to change case of letters in word cloud

    Not sure why there is no option to prevent the word cloud from changing everything to lower case. Could at least be a moderated option. This is a hindrance in Tech oriented settings where participants often enter acronyms into the cloud... just looks strange when you have a system names CATS and it shows up as cats...

    Well, it’s tough but I definitely understand what you mean. Our dream is to have some Natural Language Processing to automatically determine a lot of these responses. It’s a tough computing problem for Google and Apple with their AIs…and us too!

    We don’t want our wordclouds to be straight case sensitive because most phones will autocorrect to be autocase and you don’t want “Cats” to show up either, or just the first word of each sentence and we chose to default to lowercase because it is standard in the word cloud industry.

    Some acronyms are obvious like SUV should always be capitalized, but words like “cats” could be either depending on the context.

    We will tackle it in time and hopefully sooner than later. If we get a lot of interest in this over some other cool stuff we’re working on, we will definitely switch priorities. Let us know if…

  19. improve "recent presentations" on pollev.com

    As students, it'd be helpful to see more than 3 "recent presentations" so that we can access frequent professors faster

  20. Add Back Button to LiveSlides PowerPoint add-in

    LiveSlides doesn't have a back button but it needs one! This would allow someone to be able to follow a hyperlink on a website but still get back to the original webpage. Without it, I can't figure out how to get back.

    I'd like to use LiveSlides within a self-guided PowerPoint to flip the classroom, and I want students to be able to do a simple research project but easily move forward with the presentation when they are finished.
