How can we improve Poll Everywhere?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Bug in Clickable Image

    If a user clicks too close to the top edge of the image their response is out of bounds and is placed at the top left (bottom left on mobile) and it is marked as correct even if it is not inside the region it is meant to be correct in.

  3. Integrate with Microsoft Teams as an app

    There is a strong need to be able to control the forum of people voting/comment but doing so in an anonymous way. There is no great way to do this in Microsoft Teams and the only apps available that support this are TinyPulse and other competitors. Microsoft Teams is important because it's used in enterprise scenarios and already can control access to various groups etc.

    I use PollEverywhere regularly with my organization of almost 100 people. Being able to extend it's usage to garner feedback asynchronously and anonymously outside of meeting rooms and presentations would really take it to the…

  6. Additional visual settings for clickable image marker

    Visual
    I think this is a very important feature to be able to change the green color of the markers.
    I just want to use a map with a lot of green areas - for the audience it is not easy to see the markers. ---
    A second issue is that there are almost some persons which are handycapped with color blindness red-green.

  8. Allow Survey to be Group or have a separate Category for Survey

    Currently, all surveys cannot be grouped otherwise it cant be shared and reside in UNGROUP. This can be messy if there are a lot of survey or polls in the UNGROUP.

    Even though I close to hide the Q, it does not remember the setting. when login to polleverywhere all the survey Q are open up.

    Suggest allowing Survey to be Group and nested in another category called SURVEY. It would be neater and easier to find.

  10. Remove numbers from Polling Respose Options

  12. Add a stopwatch to the poll

    Polls currenlty have the option for a timer only, so this idea could be easy to implement. There are different scenarios where a meeting room needs to time how long they spend on the current slide, for example, discussing and evaluating colleagues, then voting on the "grade". A stopwatch would allow to time without requiring a separate application to run in the forground as a timer, making Polleve a more complete package. Thanks!

  13. Export poll questions

    Poll Everywhere should include an option for poll creators to export poll questions out of the system. This could be done via .csv file. Since poll questions can be imported into the system, there should be an option to export them as well.

    We do have data exports available for our University-Wide and Enterprise accounts. Anyone on these accounts may contact their dedicated Account Manager to get this enabled.

    Otherwise, we do have a CSV export for our Executive Summary report which will have the poll title and all response options. However, the format isn’t really designed to be uploaded to another system necessarily and may need someone to manually delete certain fields to work.

  14. Allow students to submit open-ended answers to a question, and then allow the class to choose the correct answer from the submissions

    For those who have played the game Fibbage, this idea will sound familiar, because it's an ingenious way of making classroom quizzes fun.

    I'd love to see a feature where students would be allowed to submit an answer to a question. After all submissions are received, they appear on the screen in addition to the correct answer. Students must select the correct answer from among all of the submissions.

    What makes this a game and much more fun is that kids are encouraged to submit clever (but ultimately incorrect) "fake" answers to try to fool the other students and prevent…

  15. Remove capitals from PollEv.com/xyz on presentation view

    Audience members sometimes ask if the P & E have to be capitals and iI suspect others unnecessarily type capitals when they first visit PollEv.com/xyz. I'd prefer it to say "Respond at pollev.com/xyz". It's a small thing but every little helps with an audience's first time use.

  16. Features for educators

    Here are some features I would like to see as an educator:

    1) The option of having a code that participants must enter to participate in a survey
    2) The option of randomizing questions within a survey
    3) A way of monitoring participants' device usage and locking them out of participating in a survey if they navigate away from the survey in their browser. (This should also give the administrator the ability to unlock it for those participants based on their usage, like Top Hat Test does.)
    4) A way to separate participants’ response history by question group (e.g., so…

  20. Formatting for competiton questions

    Competition questions:

    1) Remove the pollev.com message at the top of the screen (replace with custom url message)

    2) Screen Names
    a) ability to toggle off random screen names ?
    b) ability to toggle random names to numbered names (guest 1, guest 2, etc…) ?
    c) ability for admin user to provide alternate list of “client appropriate” random names (for non – registered users)

    3) Option to not allow duplicate “user entered” screen names (sorry, that name is already taken for this session)
