  1. Experiments

    Allow teachers to run in-class experiments: By this I mean that I want to direct all my students to one link. The poll or survey should then (randomly) direct one half of students to one version of a question and the other half of students to another version of a question. This way I can show how different question wording / scenarios / ... lead to different responses.

    thanks

  2. Give the option to show regions in present mode.

    For the poll I want to create, I have selected specific regions and ideally would be able to show those on present mode so that voters can "click" on the region they are voting for instead of randomly clicking on the map. The way it’s set up now, the map is blank and you essentially have to cross your fingers that voters click on an area that corresponds to one of those boxes. Keep in mind - some countries are small! 

For this use-case, I feel like a pin would be sufficient as shown under “Audience Favorites” (hopefully people can…

  3. Custom time period for correct answer visibility delay

    Instead of having a drop down with limited options for the "When should correct responses be visible to participants?" setting, have it be a field where you fill in a set number of hours/days.

    Even better - if we could set this on a per-poll or per-group basis and enter in a specific date as well.

  4. You should explore allowing multiple account template polls

    We are a big company and have two sectors within the same account. We would like to have two poll templates: one per sector

    Thanks for the idea! We are actively doing some initial research into different ways to expand and improve our template poll feature. It’s great to hear these sorts of requests.

    We are looking into this right now, however it is still very early for us to say exactly how we will implement these improvements. We’ll post here as the project moves along.

    Thanks for the idea!

  5. Visme presentation?

    I've recently moved all presentations over to using Visme (away from Prezi and Powerpoint). An excellent tool, except I can not embed my polls. Is there a way I can do this with Visme like I did with Power Point rather than having to close out and go to full web screen shot?

  6. Nested Questions

    Nested questions based on how an initial question is answered.

    For example, question 1 is a yes or no question. If the respondent answers yes, they're brought to a follow-up question (question 2); if their answer is no, they're brought to a different follow-up (question 3).

    Once those are responded to, the answers can be merged into one poll for display.

  7. Ability to adjust Fonts, etc within the multiple choice options

    Would like the ability to adjust fonts, colors, size, underline, etc in the multiple choice options. This would be useful in grammar type questions, when we want people to notice the differences in the multiple choice options.

    There is a workaround that I might suggest, let me know if this could work for you.

    Our polls support LaTeX which is typically used by math or science professors to give equations. However, LaTeX also supports way to underline, bold, italicize etc… text in general.

    You can see a bit how it works here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/power-users/latex

    And, I usually recommend this website for examples around LaTeX (there’s a whole section on the formatting you’re describing): https://www.sharelatex.com/learn

    Would that work for you?

  8. Q&A enhancement

    Add the option for a Customisable Question with a User Drop Down box options before continuing on to the page to write your Q&A, This would allow us to continue as anonymous, yet have a group identifier that allows us to tailor the response in a live Q&A. The example I have is to be able to identify the market / location where the question is being asked from. This would then be displayed in a new column during a live Q&A so that you can sort by market first, and votes second, so that each population has questions answered.

  9. Change language instructions for specific polls

    It would be good to have an option to change the language instructions for a specific poll. Right now when you change the language settings it affects all polls.

  10. Reporting enhancements

    Not sure if these issues are simply user-error and I'm not looking in the right places, but if not I hope this will be of use. Despite the following, I found Poll Everywhere to be a fantastic and useful tool for the most part as did the participants in the conference we used it for.

    I have polls that are grouped by which session they apply to in a multi-day conference. When it comes to reporting, I'm having to generate a report for each session because if I select all groups then the report not only shows no distinction between…

  11. Voters count rather that votes count

    I often allow voters to vote for more than one item. When I do so, I can see how many votes have been cast, but not how many people have voted. I want to be able to see the latter, because I want to know when most people have cast a vote. This is impossible to tell from the tally of votes, since some people cast multiple votes

    Thanks for the feedback! I’ll bring it up to our engineers. I know this is a bit trickier for us to do than simply changing a visual setting because we have to securely pass the participant data back to the poll. This is especially difficult for our Anonymous polls. As well as keeping it crystal clear to people what we are counting. Last thing we want is to confuse folks who see that the number of responses and the count don’t match up.

    But, I can certainly understand the desire here.

  12. User poll completion prominent notification

    I have run the same ranking poll several times with the same group. About half the group each time asks" did you receive my ranking? All I see is a circle with a line through it that looks like there is a problem". I know that the red slash circle is intended to warn that the user will be clearing and restarting the ranking poll. Can the message be made more clear and prominent that the ranking poll has been successfully submitted? thanks!

  13. Timer is hidden behind Google Slides toolbar

    When using the Poll Everywhere extension within presentation mode of Google Slides, the timer is actually hidden behind the Google Slides toolbar in the lower left corner of the screen. When you attempt to manipulate the timer, you cannot make any changes to it because the Google Slides toolbar covers it every time the cursor gets near the timer. If there were a setting to select the position of the timer or if it could freely be moved, that would solve the problem.

    Hi Heather,

    I’m sorry about the trouble with our Google Slides integration. Thank you for bringing this up to us. This looks like a bug on our end. We should have a fix for this with our next update to our Chrome Extension for Google Slides.

    We’ll send you an email when that is coming out.

    Thanks for bringing this up!

  14. Adding language support to the PollEv Response Page (currently affects only the poll slidesn not the web page people go to)

    the languages change currently affects only the poll slides and not the web page people go to to submit their response.

    This is part of a long term plan for us. However, localizing the language for the response page is a significant effort for us because of just how many errors, warnings, and other general text that we display. That is why we began with the Response Instructions on the slide.

    I can’t say when we’ll get there, but we hear you. Thanks for the feedback!

  15. Automatically insert replies from one poll to a new one in a presentation

    It would be great to have the possibillity to take the answers from one poll directly into another poll/question during a presentation, without having to take a break in the presentation to do this manually.
    Specifically, I have been hoping to first start out with a word cloud, and then directly switch over to another question (e.g. rank order, multiple choice or upvote) where the respondents can vote on the words reported in from the previous question (hence the replies on the first question is seamlessly added into the second).

    This is tricky for us to do. I love the idea, but it’s subtly very hard to cover all of our edge cases.

    Have you tried our Q&A Poll before? It’s not going to give you the exact same behavior but it hits a similar need. That poll type allows your audience to reply with open ended responses and up/downvote those responses as well.

    Is that sufficient for you? You can read a bit about our Q&A polls here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/question-and-answer-brainstorm

  16. Develop the Liveslide app for the i-pad

    Using Apple TV and an ipad via a modulator allows us to run rolling presentations throught business premises. The ability to add a weather page, sports news pages etc is a great feature.

  17. Reverse display order for open-ended responses

    We use open-ended responses to collect questions for executive town halls. It would be great if we could reverse the order and new responses/questions would be added at the bottom instead of the top.

    Interesting idea. Would you expect the video to load and display for your audience on their mobile devices? Or, is it more just to be able for them to link to another website?

    There are a few security concerns because there is always some risk to linking or loading other websites but it’s a fun idea

  19. Placeholder slide: rather than random shot - just have title portion. That way, won’t ‘glitch’ while waiting for server connection

    Currently the slide you’ll see in slide deck of PowerPoint is apparently randomly generated, sometimes capturing a chart with answer from previously run poll ( the last time you presented the deck live). This leads to cumbersome need to pull out the poll everywhere slides and reinsert them fresh each time you give the talk. Or else will risk a glitchy presentation and slide deck that has answers revealed from last presentation. The ‘placeholder slides’ poll everywhere uses do not update - they are truly just ‘placeholders’. The best solution is for those placeholders to be ‘clean’ and unrevealing of…

    Thanks for the feedback! That’s really interesting to hear. We had a lot of discussions about whether to show or hide the results on the placeholder images. It was tough to try and decide.

    I’ve shared this with our team and we’ll be checking in with other customers if they have a preference as well.

  20. Allow the poll timer to activate when using the mobile app.

    For many reasons, I do not embed the poll questions in my presentation, but prefer to "push" the poll questions to the audience while showing a different presentation slide. With the embedded poll slides/desktop version, the timer for a question will activate and then lock the poll. However, when the mobile app is used, the timer for the poll will not activate. It would be nice to either have it activate the timer or give a timer start option within the mobile app.
