  1. Integrate with the LearnUpon LMS

    We use a learning management system (LMS) to track our trainings, including quizzes and results, and we would like to use the Report function on Poll Everywhere to log the results of polls (quizzes) for each individual that takes our training courses.

  2. Provide ability for groups to review reports in class and remotely without having to PDF

    I have created a (five poll) survey and hope to have a relatively large (500) number of people take the survey.

    Then I plan to run at least three different reports.

    After that, I will break my class of thirty into groups of three to five and what I would like to do is to have the students, in their groups and via their Chromebooks, access the reports in order to be able, as a group, to come up with some conclusions.

    For now, it seems that the only way I can do this is to run the report, then…

  3. Ability to include a picture IN the question for ALL question types

    Currently you can include pictures in the question for Multiple Choice questions. This is sometimes a useful feature in brainstorm and all other question types. Even clickable image (show a picture in the question, click on the most important difference you see on the second image). Or on brainstorming show a picture in the question and brainstorm the best description for the image and people can up/down vote.

  4. Allow Edit Multiple to access more settings

    It seems inconsistent that Edit Multiple omits certain settings, like Anonymous or Scheduled Lock/Unlock.

    Yeah, I am with you 100% on that Mike. I can imagine how time consuming it must be if you are settings a scheduled lock/unlock time on multiple polls. Ugh, I feel your pain on that.

    There are reasons why we don’t have everything under edit multiple, although none of them couldn’t be overcome today. Most of those reasons are legacy code as we have grown and changed things over time. Edit multiple just hasn’t had a good fix in a while.

    The biggest hurdle right now is design. It’s tricky to have so many settings on that page/view without overwhelming people. I have a few ideas that I’m going to toss out to our design experts and see what they get.

    Hopefully we’ll have a good fix for you soon. In the meantime, I’m sorry to say you’ll need to set those one at a time. Let us know…

  5. Co-Branding

    It would be great to allow users to upload our business logo and co-brand printed pdf pages.

  6. Show Colored Markers Idea for Clickable Images

    You may be spinning the wheels on this already, but it would be AWESOME if your programmers could add another toggle switch to a live poll that would change the colors of the participants markers to match their "group" colors instead of just displaying all markers in green. This would allow for a few more competitive uses of PollEv in the classroom.

  7. Improving Clickable Images

    Ability to zoom in on clickable images on mobile. Plus, optimizing the code, since it seems to chug for multiple clicks from multiple users.

    Would it work if we allow you to temporarily magnify what’s under your finger by tapping and holding your finger down?
    In this magnified state, you can:
    - Drag your finger to explore different parts of the screen.
    - Lift your finger to return to your previous state.

    It is a different workflow than the usual “pinching” movement for zooming, but unfortunately our mobile app makes that tricky to support.

  8. live web pages - don't show PDFs?

    Hi there,

    Love the idea of being able to embedd live websites into my presentation, however, it doesn't seem to work when the page I point to has a pdf in it (the site I was pointing to that didn't work is: https://www.liv.asn.au/PDF/For-Lawyers/Ethics/5-04-12---CAP--guideline-(approved-by-LIV-Council- )

  10. Question real estate and formatting

    As a computer science instructor, I wish I had more real estate and formatting capabilities for a longer, multi-line question (I personally would use it to post code snippets). Polleverywhere could facilitate it by allowing the presenter to quickly toggle back and forth between the long question and the poll responses. It would allow the presenter to carry on a discussion with the audience/students without toggling in and out of the tool.

  12. SMS & push notification to local audience of a web poll link

    partner with beacon or wifi or bluetooth technology provider to enable a push notification of the poll web links to a room full of attendees.

    what technology did vw use to get the sms sent to all moviegoers here: http://www.cnet.com/news/movie-theater-stunned-by-volkswagens-dont-text-and-drive-ad/

    would like the ability for a presenter to message out individual poll links like this, or have an API so that a 3rd party app can leverage its push notification capabilities to do so

    We want to because this is sooo cool! But, we have to try and remain real business people (at least for now). These GPS location notifications are not yet up to our standards of consistency and there are a number of concerns for our customers who will have multiple presentations/lectures going in neighboring room that we just cannot invest in it yet. We are always looking into it and hope to have this someday soon.

  13. Multiple session conference management

    Allow unlimited subusers with access to a single poll each.

    We do now have a way to align the instructions on the Left, Center, or Right of the poll display. But, they do remain immediately beneath the title of the poll question. We’re always working to expand the customization of the poll chart and we will get there someday.

    Until then, if you go to Visual Settings (the paintrbush icon at the top of the page) > then select the "How to respond’ menu to expand it > you can select to Left, Center, or Right Align the instructions.

    Otherwise, if you are using our PowerPoint integration – you can actually resize where the poll image is displayed and enter the text anywhere you want. Here’s how:
    http://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/742254

  15. Include group names in the searched text

    The searched text only looks at the text in the polls. If it also searched on the group names, then this would help me limit the number of polls show on the My Polls page.

  16. font size indication

    it would be nice to have an indication of the font size when designing the poll appearance. Now I just have to guess and hope that I'm putting the slider in a consistent location. Doesn't even have to be true font sizes - just a relative number would help. Thanks

  17. Timed/scheduled activation of a poll

    I'd like the ability to push a scheduled poll to my dedicated page
    without the question being visible until the poll actually starts.
    Currently the question is visible, the users just cannot submit a response
    yet until the start time has been reached.

  18. Sign in to polleverywhere with Google

    Have you considered allowing sign-in with Google? Next year our school will not allow us to use sites the necessitate login if they don't have sign-in with Google. We are concerned about students being asked to have too many logins between 8 teachers.

    Well, it’s still planned for us to do but it’s been pushed back to make way for more team competition related features and an improved asynchronous polling method for quizzes and feedback outside of the class/presentation.

    We have included a quick Recent Presentations list that will help students and participants switch between presentations faster. You can read a little about that here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/new-for-2016-updates-on-your-poll-everywhere-account/

    We have also added a way to import all of your students with Blackboard and Canvas LMS. So, they can log in with their Blackboard or Canvas emails.

    Google SSO is still planned but is not going to be tackled until at least this fall 2016

  19. Integrate PollEv with Schoology LMS

    Hello!

    Next year my district is going to implement the enterprise version of
    Schoology. I'm still in the learning process of Poll Everywhere, but
    linking those two would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

  20. set the corrections toggle to be automatic

    I'm sure a lot of your customers would appreciate the ability to set the corrections toggle to be automatic.

    For example: Instead of having to toggle the corrections button manually, how about setting it to toggle on after how many seconds or minutes we set.

    Maybe even a separate timer for it be toggled off.
