Segmented polls for responses across groups
A colleague described a use case that I think would be great for PollEv but that isn't yet supported. This colleague's goal was to do a "fist of 5" exercise across a large number of participants in a meeting, but to segment that response by teams. For example, someone could select which team they're in and also respond to the question, and the responses could be grouped according to the selection on that question.
Implementation-wise, I think this could be accomplished by allowing someone to add a "segmentation" or "grouping" or similar to an activity's settings for viewing the results, and to group the result views by the answers to the selected question in the poll's settings. This would allow a large group to participate and see overall responses by group without having to dump out to another tool or Excel spreadsheet.
Thank you for your feedback! We will definitely look into supporting more robust segmentation as we see more customer interest.

Yeah the Segment feature sucks. We want to use this just for either cases of demographic slicing (like asking preferences on something, or in your case a team assignment), then ask the students a concept question, and be able to explore live with students how potentially their response on question A contribute to response on B. I looked at Segmentation but it's a real cludge to use it - a massive drop-down list of other questions from different unrelated sessions. I thought I could get round it by Inserting Question B twice and only apply the Segment view settings to B, but what I found is that the View Settings are retained on the question and not the slide and the effect of having it in twice was weird. So if I show this to instructors I'll probably just have to show them the cludge way. Compare this and weep to Turning which basically allowed you to insert a Demographic Comparison slide (see attached)
