    Does Poll Everywhere intend to create an email-alert list for admins that announces performance issues and outages? While the status page (https://status.polleverywhere.com/) is quite helpful, it would be more helpful to also have an email-alert list for admins when issues like this occur so we can be proactive and contact our users to let them know about these issues. Solely relying on the status page is not ideal since admins will either have to monitor it regularly to keep aware of issues, or, in the lease ideal case, admins will have to check the status page whenever a…

    I can understand this completely Joe. We subscribe to multiple type lists ourselves. We are currently finishing up a process of changing services for all of our support and email services which has put a pause on introducing more support features until that settles down.

    This is definitely something we plan on implementing, I’ll bring this up to the team and see about when and some of the details for how.

  2. Voting results

    Have a setting that only displays results after a certain amount of votes have been submitted. This way most people would not be influenced from the results as they are coming up.

    We do have the ability to hide the bar charts and the results while you are receiving responses: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/presenting/instructions-view

    However, there isn’t a way right now to automatically switch from that to showing the results. It requires clicking the button while you are presenting. We’re always hesitant to add an automatic change that may take the presenter significant practice/exposure to get used to.

    One thing we have been considering is the ability to customize a “click” or “presentation” flow that can become the default. Such as all polls would hide the results initially, then you could click the right arrow key to show the results, then the right arrow key again to move to the next poll question or slide. Would you be interested in something like that?

  3. Lock answers upon hitting the Finish button

    Have a way to lock out further responses from a student once they hit the Finish button on surveys. As it is now they hit "Finish" but they can still go back and change answers at will until the Poll closes. I realize I could disable the ability to change answers. But I want them to be able to change answers while taking the survey/test. But once they hit Finish it locks their answers.

    This is tricky. We were trying to balance this to allow people who respond to a survey and perhaps forget to reply to an option → to be able to go back and try again. As well as if the person has accidentally closed/refreshed the page → let them open the survey again without losing the data. It’s a tough balance on security and ease of use.

    I can definitely understand the desire to prevent this from an educators perspective to prevent cheating and perhaps use PE for a more quiz or other assessment based purposes. I’ll bring this up with our engineering team and see what options we might have.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  4. I would like to leave the poll up for longer than 30 days without inactivity.

    We use Poll Everywhere as our district wide text a tip line. As you know, if the poll is inactive for 30 days, the poll shuts off. Is there a way for you to set it so it stays on ALWAYS. we need the poll to never shut off. If I forget to check it at 30 days to make sure it's on, it will shut off, and we have instituted this to help with the health and safety of our student body.

  6. Sort by group in Participant Response History page

    In the Participant Response History page, allow to sort by group so I can see who has answered by the classes I teach.

    You can do this with our Gradebook report today. However, we didn’t add this filter for the Participant History Report. Although, I can look into what that would take for us to do.

    Until then, I recommend using our Gradebook report for this. Here’s how:
    1. Have all of your students in Participant Groups based on class
    2. set your poll questions to registered participants only
    3. run a Gradebook report on all of the polls you are using for attendance
    4. To the right of the Gradebook report > select the Participants menu > and chose the participant group (class) that you want to report on. It will include all students who are in this group, but did not respond

  7. When you have registered users, a teacher should be able to see who has answered the poll while its running.

    When I pay to have registered users, I'd like to be able to see who has answered the poll while it is still active.

    This is available today for our open ended poll questions for text wall or cluster view. However, we do not have a place right now to display the which participants have replied for a multiple choice poll. I will need to follow up with our engineering and design teams for how we may do that.

    In the meantime, here’s how you can display the registered students’ names on open ended polls

    1. select the paintbrush icon on the open-ended poll to open the visual settings menu
    2. click on the Message Item accordion menu to expand it
    3. click the checkbox for the “Show participants” option

    That will display the participants names on their response in real time .

  8. Change default right/wrong point assignment

    For teaching I give mostly multiple choice questions. For the wrong answer I'd like to assign 2 points and right answers I'd like to assign 4 points. I then use the export-to-canvas to send them all to my student's accounts.

    I'd like to set this up by default. Currently, for every question I turn on the "assign points", and fill in the 2 for all questions but the correct one, where I fill in a 4.

  9. Duplicate a question adds it as the last question. Put it after the one being duplicated

    Better still would be to support Ctrl+Drag so it can be placed anywhere in the list of questions

    We actually very recently looked into making the Duplicate option put the new question immediately after the original, but it turned out to be much more difficult and prone to bugs than we anticipated. With how important the order polls are listed (to be able to present from the website), we didn’t want to introduce the potential errors this would cause for us. Hopefully, we’ll be able to include this in the future when we come back to improvements to the poll list.

    Otherwise, we do have drag-n-drop support for any poll questions you create. You can now click and hold on any poll question → and drag it to the desired location. You can read about this and other changes to our poll list here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/surveys-as-siblings/

    I’m sorry that the “Clear” button isn’t obvious. We used to have all of those buttons have longer labels and it was titled “Clear responses” however we had to shorten the names for most of them for space as we added more controls recently and had some feedback that the buttons needed to be larger.

    I’ll get a request out to our design to see if we can get some tooltips in the short-term. I know longer-term our plan is to move more toward a dropdown menu of options where we’d have more descriptive labels.

    If you do want any more information about the Clear responses option you can read about it here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#clearing-responses

  11. Notification that survey of a non-live presentation was responded to.

    We use a survey of quiz questions after someone has viewed a video presentation. Would like to have notification that the survey was taken.

  12. Option to disable the newest response being larger

    Option for instructor to disable the newest response being larger.
    At least this is what happens in Cluster mode when showing responses. If I am in a workshop with a group, asking for opinions or feedback about something, I would prefer all answers appear the same size.
    What I do know is send myself at the end an answer jusr with "x", but I would prefer to have the option to have all the answers the same size.

    We have some translation support for our instructions on the live chart, however it will still be a little while before we can commit to begin working on the same level of support on the mobile application. There are just a lot more error states and other potential translation needs on our mobile app. And, this will add a significant amount of work for us to maintain.

    In the meantime, I do recommend setting our chart translations. You can see how here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/presenting/language-support

  14. When I'm answering a Q&A question, mark which items I've already upvoted or downvoted

    When I'm answering a Q&A question, mark which items I've already upvoted or downvoted so I can more easily work through the list. It's also hard to understand (and explain to others) what the numbers are on the left. Perhaps a label at the top of that column would help.

    Sorry, I’m not sure I fully understand. After you up/downvote on a response to a Q&A poll → the up/down arrow should turn from white to a dark blue to indicate that you have voted. Is this not happening for you or not what you have in mind?

    The numbers along the left is the “Net score” or “Net votes” which tallies the +1 and -1 votes and gives it’s overall value. I haven’t heard much confusion with the Net Score being unclear, however we will definitely test it with some folks and if we hear from more people we will add some more labeling. We’re always hesitant to add more words to clutter up the response page, but it’s important to be clear.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  16. Weighted Voting

    Have a way for a delegate's vote to be weighted in situations where one delegate is representing several people's vote as a proxy or maybe the president's vote has more swing so his/ her vote should count as two individual's vote.

  18. Ability to delete individual responses

    In a moderated event, it would be good if we could delete individual responses to preserve the 500 response count. In many cases, we have forums where we would like to allow participants to be anonymous and also to have the ability to input multiple responses, but it only takes one person in the group to ruin it for everyone else. Deleting all the responses is not a great option because it deletes the legitimate responses.

    Ah, this is a tough one. Most of our pricing is based around the maximum number of responses allowed per poll question because generally larger events have a larger budget and this helps keep things fair for our customers and keeps us in business.

    If we allow plans with moderation to “delete” a response and prevent it from getting recorded as a response it allows for some bad agents to game our pricing system and get a lot of “free” responses by showing them and then “deleting” them before they reach the limit. So, it’s a tradeoff for us.

    We might be able to do something like giving each presenter a maximum of 5-10 “deletes” that they can use for any given poll question. That way you can remove a few bad responses that you never want to display, but prevent gaming the system.

    Do you think that would work…

  19. improve "recent presentations" on pollev.com

    As students, it'd be helpful to see more than 3 "recent presentations" so that we can access frequent professors faster

  20. Clickable image reporting: Separate "coordinates" and "clickable region" data values

    Clickable image reporting: Separate "coordinates" and "clickable region" data values
    Current reporting for "Clickable Image" poll includes a data column (in the Pivot Table format) that has both the click coordinate values (0-100%,0-100%) and the Defined Click Region, if any. These are 3 separate values and should be reported in separate data columns; otherwise they have to be parsed in order to be used.
