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:
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.1 vote

This is particularly important for me as I use the iOS app during class. I am surprised there isn't a feature to re-order my questions in my groups so that when I arrow at the top to scroll from poll to poll, they appear on my screen in the correct order as they are show on the board in the classroom so that I can manage the poll live rather than have to go back to the main page and select the question from the list again (maybe this is already capable and I haven't been able to figure it out?). Since the default order is organized by when I made the poll questions, whenever I update my lectures and add new poll questions, they're out of order I try to re-arrange and organize my poll questions on the website, but it doesn't update in my app.

In academic uses of Poll Everywhere, a lot of instructors have teaching assistants who help them to collaborate and share polls. We use the "groups" feature for this but one thing that TAs do not have access to do with grouped polls that they did not create is clear response data. This would be a great setting, for example, "Allow group members to clear response data for this poll" to enable for groups.15 votes
I understand completely. Yes. These sorts of Permissions and Collaboration features are really important and can also get complicated for us. The largest issue is just that it varies from presenter to presenter as to whether they want to allow others to do things like Clear Results.
For now, we are defaulting to prevent other users on the account from clearing or performing any other permanent/destructive actions on another person’s polls.
We have a few different initiatives in progress that should hopefully begin to address these sorts of issues, however introducing a more complex permissions system is a long project for us.
So, please stay tuned and thank you very much for the suggestion! We appreciate it and will do our best to post here and keep you all updated as we build more toward a multi-user and collaborative world.

Build in the essential function of peer-instruction pedagogy-partnering students with people who have different responses. There is substantial empirical evidence in research that supports peer instruction pedagogy--when students are not given the answer but have to work it out with someone who might think differently from them. It improves depth and transfer of learning.1 vote
I am wondering if I can make a shape(ex. animal, tree...) with the keywords from the participants in Word Cloud function.
Since I saw Pollev, It changed the way I survey.
My name is Hwain Moon from Korea and I work for a pharmaceutical company.
I use pollev's word cloud function to get doctors' idea on our product. To tell the truth I am 90% satisfied with the service now.
But I am wondering if I can make a shape(ex. animal, tree...) with the keywords from the participants in Word Cloud function.

I need the students to pick one or more images on a page. E.g. "Who, of these persons, have a criminal record". The questions MUST NOT be placed in a long column, but side by side + displayed in random.3 votes

I now have hundreds of polls, representing many hours of work over five years. I would like to be able to make a backup for myself, in case something gets lost online, either because of my own user error or your system's.
Is there any way to do this, other than somehow creating a "report" for all poll questions?1 vote
I had to go with www.mentimeter.com for a conference due to not having the question types of scales and 100 points. You guys should check those 2 types out and add them to poll everywhere.57 votes
We currently don’t have an activity type specifically for this. We recommend using Multiple choice activities and allowing participants to select each option more than once. Otherwise, you can use our Ranking activity to force rank. We’ll look into this more as we see more interest.
I think it's an oversight that the number of respondents per poll is the same (40) for both the k-12 free and premium accounts. What's the point of upgrading if I can't also increase the number of respondents? Sure, the size of 40 works well for a single class, but what about having an entire GRADE respond to the same poll at the same time to record accurate data? If the number of respondents increases for the Business & Non-profit plans (25, 50, 100, etc.), then why can't this increase also be applied to the K-12 plans? Upping the premium number to 100 allows for more application! This needs serious consideration.

A great way to use poll everywhere on a very quick basis is to split the screen and have images or questions open in one app and have the poll everywhere open in a second window. However, unless you are in full screen mode, the previous and next buttons block the total number so you can see when your audience has completed the survey. This ought to be an easy fix.6 votes
It would be great if only the attending students can response to the active survey or quiz. If a student is registered in the class, he still can take the survey even though he is not attending the class. This feature will be very helpful in taking the class attendance. I would recommend having an access code for each survey displayed on the board. Attending students only can see it and type it in to access the survey. This feature can be added to the survey setting, such as Restrict to participants with access code only.16 votes
We’ve discussed a few different ways we might do this. I’d like to ask if this would work for you:
If the title of the question is not displayed on the mobile device, so the only was a student could know what you are asking is if they can see the chart, would that be sufficient for you?
It isn’t fool proof, but we’re a little hesitant to add in the complexity to reply that it takes to enter a long, rotating code. There’s just a balance we’re trying to strike between ease of replying and preventing any cheating.
I'd like to change the ordering of the groups listed on the right side of the Participants screen. Possibly drag them up or down after clicking on the Edit button.2 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! I actually have never heard of this before, but you are 100% right we do not currently have a way to reorder or customize those at all right now.
We’re generally trying to move away from drag and drop within the application to better support Tablets and mobile devices. However, I will bring up reordering the list for future enhancements to that page.
dding a feature that allows participants to notified when they are to answer a poll question. This could be something like a push notification on the app or an email alert when using the website.40 votes
This could be possible for us to do with our downloadable mobile application, but gets very tricky for participants that are just using a web browser or text messaging to reply. We’ve also been very hesitant to cause any notification that might cause “buzzing” or other sounds in a large auditorium as it might be very distracting, although I believe there are some ways around that.
Are most of your participants using the downloadable app or are you looking for something more?
Thanks for the feedback!
When I export grades to Canvas, I'd like some options (checkboxes) to decide what to export. E.g., If I select a group of polls, I would like to send just the participation percent; or a total points for the polls. Often I don't want individual polls in the gradebook, just a score for the day.4 votes
When I have multiple polls in PowerPoint, after the presentation is done, the results of the last active poll are saved on a slide - because that poll is still considered active. I'd like all the results collected during the presentation to be saved on the slide for each poll so that when I distribute the presentation the static results are show. Simply doing whatever you do with the active poll when the presentation is closed should be applied to the inactive polls too.6 votes
Thanks for the feedback!
We do have a way to insert a screenshot with the results into PowerPoint. That would be my recommendation for right now. The tricky part for us is that many presenters like to reuse their decks and they want to have the poll slides always be empty and not show results. It’s a tough tradeoff for us.
But, here’s how you can insert screenshots with the results without leaving PowerPoint for Windows
1. in PowerPoint, click on the Poll Everywhere tab in the upper right
2. then click the arrow icon at the bottom of the Insert button
3. select Screenshot
4. click the checkbox for the polls you want to get screenshots for
5. then click Insert Screenshot
That will insert separate powerpoint slides with screenshots for the selected polls. You may then move those to the desired spot in your deck before sharing.
