Ability to have multiple polls active
We have used Poll Everywhere to run polls using a distributed audience in multiple countries. It would be incredibly useful to have multiple active polls going at the same time. For example, it would be great to have an open ended poll open so our global audience can ask questions, at the same having a word cloud poll to gauge the audience sentiment, and a multiple choice poll to see how they are reacting to certain topics and finally a up/down vote poll to see how they are responding to the presentation of the conference. This is a must have for us. We are currently creating 4 separate URLs for this capability, but it is very confusing to our audience since they now have to manage a video conference, a screen share (for slides) and 4 separate poll URLs. This would also be useful for our live polls in an auditorium. We would like to be able to show 2 or 3 polls at the same time, but, as noted earlier, that requires the use of 4 URLS. Setting up a survey does not seem to help since the feedback cannot be aggregated and displayed very well (or at all).

I'm currently trying to poll 4 separate classes during the school day but can only poll one at a time. I would like to leave the polls open all day for all four classes.

Why can't anyone up vote this any further? You already hash each item and can infer the presentation order based on the order defined in the UI. It should also be possible to provide individual item live reports when using a survey. It makes it unnecessarily difficult to use the platform when there isn't sufficient documentation and there are restrictions that don't need to be implemented.
I don't think this is working, is there a solution to running multiple polls at the same time?
I built the surveys for 4 meetings that will run simultaneously. However, I am now realizing only one of the polls can actually be used since you only allow for one active poll at a time. Not good.

Hi Brian, I have a similar request: We need to show 12 of our open polls on a single page. (NOT RESULTS). 12 last active polls need to be shown on one single page. How can this be done?
Could you please post the steps to do that "small but of setup"? I'd also like to be able to set this up but I'm on the other side of the world and the support hours don't work for me to call.
