  1. Competition - set up for over time, not just for one session

    Can Competition be set up as a loop? This way we can put up the questions on a monitor and people who walk by can answer questions as they please and over time we can see the winner on the leaderboard.

  2. CSV template to import questions for Competitions

    I've had good success with Competitions already, but it would be nice if CSV template functionality was added for this category. It's a lot easier to create a poll that way.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. allow html / links on wait screen description

    Is it possible to allow html (specifically <a href="www.blah.com>click here for agenda</a>) onto the wait screen description?

  8. 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)

  9. Add ability for admins to import open-ended & Q/A answers.

    Allow admins to import open-ended answers given by participants in a previous poll. This will allow for more possibilities with the participants input and would save time on the backend where we would not need to manually resubmit all answers.

    Alternatively, provide option when duplicating a poll, to also copy over existing answers. Furthermore, having the ability after said duplication, to change from "open-ended" to "Q & A".

    Example use-case:
    -Participants submit questions to one open-ended poll throughout a weeklong event.
    -Attendees will be split into two groups on the final day, two different general sessions.
    -During each general session…

  10. Would be great to utilize the participant groups to designate specific polls, and/or generate reports for polls to identify groups.

    this would help to exclusively limit responses to people who are registered for specific classes, and/or be able to vote during meetings attended by both voting and non-voting members.

  11. Deafult Option for Everyone - No Restriction Vs Restricted to Registrants

    Default Option on a profile to set each new question created to for Everyone - No Restriction Vs Restricted to Registrants and VV. Right now we have to set that for each question we create manually, but it would be great to be able to change the default Audience Restriction based on what Poll questions I'm trying to build or what audience, as not all audiences are students or users of Poll Everywhere.

  13. Create teams

    For the competitions, could participates select a team they would like to be a part of, or better yet, could I assign participants to specific teams for competitions.

  14. Speeding up competitions (less clicks, more automation)

    (1) If everyone answered the question it could be locked and (if selected) the timer doesn't have to count down any further. What are we waiting for?

    (2) I would like to go to the 'correct answer page' automatically after the question is locked. By then we've seen it long enough. This could reduce another unnecessary click as well.

  15. Schedule Lock/Unlock to the minute

    Currently, the Schedule Lock/Unlock feature only allows 5 minute increments. It would be nice to have this go to the minute. We want to set specific quizzes to be locked at 11:59pm and currently have to do 11:55 which is a problem

  16. Need for seamless open ended polls

    I really miss the opportunity to make a openended session (e.g. wordcloud) seamless.
    As it is now it is all to much of a mess to moderate incomming words. As I understand it I need an extra device to moderate "on the fly"?
    Why not make a sollution that one can make on the computer one uses anyway?
    I suggest split screens.

  17. Simultaneous live polls or at least copy polls between accounts

    My project team has multiple accounts because we sometimes need to have multiple live polls happening simultaneously, and PollEv doesn't support this from one account. Problem is that the polls are now located in multiple places making management of the polls and data tedious, and there isn't a way to duplicate polls from one account to another. There's got to be a better way.

    Thanks for the feedback! Adding the time element to the Change Answer feature was a tricky decision for us, but was a response to issues we had where participants were interrupting presentations by deleting their responses at moments while the presenter was specifically addressing them.

    I’ll bring this up for our design and engineering team and see what it might take to make that an editable setting. We just always try to strike a balance between simplicity and customization to keep things understandable.

  20. Randomize assignment to two simultaneous polls

    This might be difficult but, for polls among registered participants only, could you allow randomization of which person gets which poll?

    If the instructor could then show both activities simultaneously on screen, we could run randomized trials within the group.

    An example of simultaneous assignment of two polls is:

    https://sites.tufts.edu/foodecon/2019/01/are-choices-predictable

    but for that I had to do the polling outside of class. If we could do this live in class, we could develop more randomized experiments within the classroom.
