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!
Thank you for your feedback! We totally understand where you're coming from and will look into this suggestion as we see more customer interest.

The new version of the Poll Everywhere competition is extremely awkward. 1. The correct answer is not salient when it is revealed. 2. You have to advance the competition fully on the webpage before launching it to the audience.
The questions are difficult to add or modify from any existing questions to the competition. Other platforms are providing a much easier way to add questions. Also, the PowerPoint slides will not advance automatically when answer time expires. If those problems cannot be fixed, I may also have to switch to another platform fully, though I like PollEveryWhere in general. This topic has actually enough interest if you combine it with "import CSV to add competition questions".
I don't see any technical difficulty in implementing this function. Yes. As commented by other users, you shouldn't be dragging your feet on this.

I support this! I uninstalled poll everywhere when I found this out and moved to a software that would allow me to do that. It is a complete deal breaker for me. I won't do competitions on your platform, I switch to another to do any competitions and my students prefer the other platform. You shouldn't be dragging your feet on this...

I support this, I've been trying to use my license of Poll Everywhere to create a Christmas Quiz for my team and I've been really disappointed in the Competitions functionality. I had 30 questions built out, some with a lot of options in them and discovered I couldn't add them to a Competition. Now I'm having to sit with two browser windows open coping every question. Even worse, I can't duplicate questions I've already built within the Competition.

Yeah it was freaking terrible when I tried it too. Not only that, but I found that each question created like 3 extra slides for doing stupid unnecessary stuff. I felt sorry for the lecturer when the room PC ground to a halt in from of students when he was trying to run PowerPoint/PollEverywhere and do a live Zoom meeting for his online students. PP/PE just couldn't cope with loading like 100 slides each with connected/online content on them from PE
