Ideas

  1. Presenters would like to be able to accept Latex responses in open ended polls.

    University users love Latex, and they would like to get the students in on the action.

  2. Support split view on iPad app

    Please support split view on the iPad! 8 currently project my iPad to a classroom and use the app Perfect Browser, which has a video out mode wherein the iOS interface is hidden and only the content of the web page is shown. If PE supported split view, I could keep it on the right side of my iPad screen and see poll results without showing them to the students.

    I sincerely hope the PE developers can add this!

  3. Ability to submit an image as a response to an open ended poll question.

    Users would like the ability to respond to a poll with an image. I think this could be best accomplished on an open ended poll question. This could function similar to the response option fields when creating a multiple choice poll, giving the participant the ability to paste the URL of an image or upload an image from their device.

    One big catch: This should not work with word cloud poll type.

  4. Ability to change case of letters in word cloud

    Not sure why there is no option to prevent the word cloud from changing everything to lower case. Could at least be a moderated option. This is a hindrance in Tech oriented settings where participants often enter acronyms into the cloud... just looks strange when you have a system names CATS and it shows up as cats...

    Well, it’s tough but I definitely understand what you mean. Our dream is to have some Natural Language Processing to automatically determine a lot of these responses. It’s a tough computing problem for Google and Apple with their AIs…and us too!

    We don’t want our wordclouds to be straight case sensitive because most phones will autocorrect to be autocase and you don’t want “Cats” to show up either, or just the first word of each sentence and we chose to default to lowercase because it is standard in the word cloud industry.

    Some acronyms are obvious like SUV should always be capitalized, but words like “cats” could be either depending on the context.

    We will tackle it in time and hopefully sooner than later. If we get a lot of interest in this over some other cool stuff we’re working on, we will definitely switch priorities. Let us know if…

  5. LaTeX equations and AMSMATH package

    LaTeX equations are truly awesome! However, most math geeks auto-include the package amsmath. More symbols. Better display. Is that possible? Right now we can use PollEverywhere for most Calculus, Linear Algebra and Diff Eq courses, but "amsmath" would mean we could use PollEV in every undergraduate math course and even most grad level courses, too.

  6. Please consider adding a New Zealand texting number (0064)

    Yes we can text to the Aussie number, but my students will not be able to afford the international txting fee for an 0061 number.

    We’re always on the look out for new phone numbers. If our two Australian based numbers are all causing international texting fees we’ll definitely be on the look out with our sms providers for a local number.

    Unfortunately, they don’t have one just yet but we’ll be first in line when it becomes available.

  7. Hide a poll

    Sometimes I try different question types with the same question. I don't want to delete them or move them out of the group, but I also don't want them to show up when I am presenting and going through the polls in order. It would be great to be able to hide or mute the poll in the group (similar to the way you can hide a slide in PowerPoint).

    Interesting. Have you tried presenting Poll Everywhere from our PowerPoint integration? I ask because our PowerPoint integration does support hidden slides, so if you are presenting with PowerPoint that may be the way to go

    Otherwise, we’ll definitely keep an eye out for any similar requests and see if we can’t come up with something for you! We’re just always concerned with trying to keep our application as simple and easy to use as possible, so new poll settings are always dangerous

  8. REALLY need a visual analog scale

    Need a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) for class work/ratings in graduate level voice disorders class!

    We have begun working on the feature. You can actually try it out right now to see a bit of how it works!

    Go to Settings > Labs > and click the box for “Disable duplicate responses”
    You can also just go to this linK: https://www.polleverywhere.com/labs

    You will then have a setting on your Multiple Choice Polls that will prevent your participants from submitting the same response multiple times when you allow multiple votes.

    Note: currently, this beta feature only works for web responses from pollev.com. We are working on the SMS and Twitter aspects next.

    Let us know what you think!

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Co-Branding

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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- )

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Multiple session conference management

    Allow unlimited subusers with access to a single poll each.
