Build a feature for tracking attendence
We badly need this feature. The current workaround for taking attendance is clunky. May I suggest add a scan QR feature in the Poll Everywhere App? Right now, if I set up a poll, and get the QR code, students scan it, but it will open in a web browser, so they have to re-login. We require our students to stay login in the App.
Why QR code? We need to use the big screen for the presentation. QR code is easier to be posted in the classroom, and it also forces the students to be onsite, so they can participate in the poll.
We built the QR code feature as a way for participants to join a presentation quickly without having to type a pollev.com/username.
We have a feature that is available on all premium education accounts called “Hide activity titles” which was designed to encourage students to physically be in the classroom by not displaying the title of any activity questions on the participant site or app. We encourage using this for attendance and participation credit: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/response-settings/activity-title-blocker
Number 6 would be extremely helpful!
Are there any updates regarding this type of polling slide?

People inside the specific location (in campus location) or boundary can only participate in the poll for voting

Here are some features I would like to see as an educator:
1) The option of having a code that participants must enter to participate in a survey
2) The option of randomizing questions within a survey
3) A way of monitoring participants' device usage and locking them out of participating in a survey if they navigate away from the survey in their browser. (This should also give the administrator the ability to unlock it for those participants based on their usage, like Top Hat Test does.)
4) A way to separate participants’ response history by question group (e.g., so I can have separate groups for week 1, week 2, etc.)
5) A way to display to participants the questions (perhaps within a particular question group) that they did NOT respond to.
6) A geo-located version so that people can only participate in polls if they are near the classroom.
