Nested groups of polls
I hear this is in the works, but being able to have groups of polls INSIDE other group would make managing hundreds of polls much easier to navigate and deal with. THANKS!!
We’re thrilled to announce that Folders and a refreshed navigation have launched today! Thank you all for your feedback — it’s been pivotal in helping us build the new organization system.

I have hundreds of polls, organized into dozens of topics. It takes a long time to scroll through my folders then click to find a particular poll. (Search does not always work efficiently, since the poll may not have unique words in title.) It would be great to be able to have several levels of Activity/Folders to keep organized.

Just wanted to see the status of the nested groups of polls (within folders) feature. As you can see, we are very eager to see this!
Is this ever going to come to fruition or will it just remain vaporware forever?

I do not mean to be sarcastic, but it has been "in the works" since 2016! Any idea when it is going to actually happen? I have close to a hundred folders and keeping them on the same level is so hard to manage... Thank you.
PLEASE add nested folders/groups. Thanks.

Please add me to the list of people requesting subgroups
But as this was asked for 7 years ago and planned nearly two years ago, it's not too hopeful
I'd like to be able to nest groups. So I can have all the polls for the 1st week of a class in a group, then put that group inside of a folder for that class.

I agree with this request. I teach 3 different classes and all of my folders are organized by chapters so when I change and update, I have to scroll through all of the different groups and it takes longer for me to organize my polls than to actually create them.
Any news on whether this is going to be possible? It is really needed for those of us that teach several classes...
Need to have a folder within folder option. For example, a top-level folder for each course, then sub folders within a course for each chapter/unit, with several polls in each of these subfolders.
It would be great to be able to make a group, containing groups. Like making a group with the name of a specific class, and then within this groups with the polls used for lecture 1, lecture 2 etc.
For example: My poll groups are currently a half dozen or fewer polls for each class meeting. That’s 25-40 groups per course, per semester. Since I have about 6 courses, that’s many, many groups. It’s tedious to move polls across days and days across courses. I’d like to have a way to group my groups.

It’s great that we’re able to keep past polls but it’s extremely difficult to view everything on the dashboard. What would be great is if we could place folders of polls (grouped polls) into separate folders so we can keep the dashboard easier to view.

Please implement this as soon as possible! As I am now starting the sixth class that uses PollEverywhere twice a week (i.e., two sessions per week) my list of groups has become unbearably long. It'd be incredibly helpful if after the end of a quarter I could archive all sessions from one class into one folder.

Hi! Just chiming in that I've had many professors at our college ask about this! It was be great!

Dear Poll everywhere,
I am one of the admins for Poll Everywhere - we have some feedback about Poll Everywhere.
One academic finds the lack of ability to sort polls into a hierarchical structure very frustrating. He wants to be able to sort them into subjects then weeks.
I can see you have this - Nested groups of polls - request already in your system and will share with him.
He also finds that sometimes with the PowerPoint plug in, in a live lecture (500 students), there is a delay for the poll to come up and the frame can show for up to 30 seconds. I know you have recently updated the plug-in and hopefully this fixed this issue (we advised him to update his plugin) but sharing for your awareness.
Is this the best way to send you feedback requests?

Is this still in the works? I would appreciate this as well!

be able to keep questions in separate folders
Please make sure there are multiple levels of folders available. For example, I can have an overall folder for the title of the course, then subfolders for each topic, then each class.
