Create an option to set "Hide Results" as the default screen
"Show Chart" is the current default when going full screen. I don't like to show all the live answers students submit because they'll usually just pick what everyone else is picking. I keep "Hide Results" displayed until all results are submitted, then switch over to "Show Chart" to discuss the results.
Thanks for your interest and feedback!
This is currently possible. Just toggle the Hide Results on. Next time you visit that poll question, it’ll be in the hidden results view by default.
You can bulk set polls to be set Hide Results. There's two methods. First, you can set a Template Poll that has the results hidden. This will hide the results for all of your current polls and all future polls will have the results hidden when you first create them. However, if you manually override the poll to see the chart > then it will not revert back to be hidden. You can see how to set a Template Poll here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#setting-a-default-style
Otherwise, you can also use our Bulk Editing tool to set a selected group of polls to be hidden. Here's how:
1. Create or set one poll to Hide Results. You can think of this as your template poll
2. On your My Polls page click the checkbox for all of the polls you want to hide the results for
3. Click the grey Edit button toward the top of the page
4. In the Edit Multiple menu > type the title of the poll you set up earlier under the Copy Visual Settings from box
5. Then click apply
This will apply all of the visual settings (including Hide Results) from your "template" to all of the selected polls.

Hope this helps!
I wonder if there is any bulk editing feature could be added. so we just select all questions and click the "hide result" button to change the setting in the "my poll" interface. Clicking on each poll is a little painful. Thanks so much!
Your polls will always remain in the state you left them in last. So if you hide the results they'll be hidden when you revisit the page. If you leave the chart showing the chart will show when you revisit the page.

I toggle to Hide Results and then once the repsonses are in I toggle to Show Results. However, the next time I visit the poll (The same presentation the next day) the Show Results is the default.
Is there a way to make the Hide Results default so that when a poll goes inactive and then is reactivated at a later day the results are always hidden? Otherwise I have to toggle back and forth each poll so it hides results in my next presentation.
