  1. Conditional Responses

    It'd be nice to have followup questions based on the response that has been sent. For example say the first question is "do you use public transit? a) yes b) no" and only if they answer "yes" they would receive a followup question "What type of public transit do you use? a) bus b) light-rail"

  2. Better handling of numeric answers

    when numerical answers are required, display a histogram of the distribution of responses, so lecturer can see roughly how many get close to the right answer, and how many are far off.

  3. Segregated data collection based on which sub-user is logged in to the PPT plug-in

    Let's say I had eight sub-users on my account and a group of questions that I want all of them to be able to ask, potentially in parallel classrooms running at the same time, but only see displayed their own results (excluding the responses gathered by the other seven sub-users). Today I have to copy the group of questions to each sub-user account and build eight separate PowerPoint decks (which is ugly, since now I'd have eight decks to maintain instead of one).

    In a corporate environment, it would be really, really useful to build one PowerPoint deck and have…

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    It’s a pretty difficult issue to solve/account for, and we’re not sure that in all situations it would be the best approach. That said, it’s something we’ve also considered.

    The main issue is that the way our system works is it assigns specific, unique codes to each of your multiple-choice options. If you try to use the same poll question multiple times, we would have to somehow create copies of the poll question on the fly, then serve them instantly to the new presenter’s audience.

    This is an awesome idea, but to make something like this work at the moment, we’d have to change some of how our system works and also dedicate a lot of development time into creating this possibility.

  4. Cache Polls, Send Eventually

    The wifi at my university is pretty terrible. However, my professor insists on using poll everywhere for quizzes everyday. Often, I miss a poll question simply because my computer or my phone cannot connect to the internet. I can't send via text because I don't have service. It would be nice if I could send the poll whenever I got wifi. Of course, this will may require a complete rewrite of your backend because a poll completely closes when the instructor decides to. And the code doesn't work afterwards. But maybe if the time the response was cached is before…

  6. Allow text responses for competitions

    Currently, the only way my audience can participate in a competition is if they use their phones web browser. I have found the advantage to Poll Everywhere over other services is that text responses are much more reliable. Internet responses are not dependable for what I do traveling around to different venues. Most of the time everyone is on the same conference wifi and responses won't go through. so I REALLY need a text option for these competitions, otherwise, I will have to stick with the other software I use.

  7. Ranking bar sizes scaled to convey average rank position (and show number)

    It appears that the bar chart in ranking polls conveys a simple spread from 1-x, with equal size steps for each rank, and any ties having equal bar lengths. Would like option to display bar sizes that are scaled to indicate the average rank position so you can tell which answers are very close or landslide winners. Suggest a bar size formula along lines of: (max length)*(number of answers+1)-(avg rank position). Another nice feature would be at least to display the average rank position of each answer/bar rounded to the tenths.

  8. Restricted IP Address -- Taking Attendence

    For using polls to take attendance, it will be great if we can add some restrictions to where they the participants located. So the users most come from certain URL to take the poll.

  10. When I advance past an embedded poll in PowerPoint, deactivate the poll

    Basically what the title says - it's really slick that a poll activates as soon as I move to its slide in PowerPoint, but when I advance to the next slide after the poll, the poll remains active and people may still be responding. I'd like to see it where it's only active while the poll's slide is being presented.

    This is a tough one. We’ve had a couple other folks ask for this as well. There’s a couple reasons we’ve been reluctant to make this change
    - first, we really want to make sure that the audience is able to reply. Getting that feedback is the core part of our service so we try to be more lenient in that direction vs. harder time restrictions
    - second, it’s fairly common (and easy) for presenters to accidentally skip forward a slide and then go back. And, we don’t want to

    Those are the two big ones. We could add a toggle to switch whether we default to de-activate when you leave a poll slide. However, it’s a lot more complexity and a bit risky for us to maintain two different versions for how Activation works since it is such a core part of our entire workflow.

    So, it’s certainly not…

  11. Respondents should be able to see their overall score upon completion of a graded survey

    For example, if the respondent were to complete a five-question graded survey, they should see an 'overall score' page after completing the last question. This page should show their score and possibly allow them to retake the test or at least view the questions/answers.

    Currently, after the end user completes a graded survey, there is no way for them to know what their overall score was. The administrator can view this information in a graded report, but they must manually pull the data and send it to the respondent.

  12. Allow that respondents get access to the up-to-date results on their own devices after — and only after — they completed the survey

    I’m not doing a presentation, just getting people to respond to the survey on their device. So I can’t project the results on my presenter screen, but I do want them to see the results write after they are completed.

  13. Allow the right hand labels to be toggled Off. Power users need only hover tool tips/Icons.

    I prefer the original Icons Only format for the right side tools/formatting area. I understand some users want these to be labeled. Thats fine, just allow the power users to toggle the labels off and have just Icons and hover tool tips. This also applies to the Next and Previous buttons.

  14. Show a counter for the no of students responses and time elapsed

    In academic use, it would be great to be able to see a counter for the no of responses that thave been received and also the time elapsed in the window when you enable a poll. This saves from constantly having to ask "have people responsed" and trying to guess how mauch time has elapsed before closing the quiz.

  17. Improve usability of poll interface

    The live poll tech is awesome, but the poll management interface could use some improvements for basic usability.
    1. Biggest one is please make the group hide/reveal triangles maintain their last position when you navigate away to edit view and back. It currently reverts back to all extended position each time I go back to the poll view screen, and it takes a lot of tedious scrolling and clicking to go back to the place where I was working.

    2. Another basic one would be for duplicated questions to appear immediately beneath the one copied - so we don't have…

  18. Allow ODBC link to poll data to facilitate custom queries/analytics

    Give us a way to link directly to raw data or tabular format. I currently manually pull down my poll everywhere data in your 'pivot table' report format and perform custom query analytics and visualizations in MS Access and Tableau. It'd be nice to be able to set up the link to the poll/survey data once and not have to deal with the tedium of version control and manual steps.

  19. Option to turn off access to participant response history

    Instructors using PE for exam review do not want students to have access to a log of their questions to share with each other or future classes. Just turning off correct isn't enough, they want to completely make access to their questions banks not possible.

  20. Auto-archive results of polls

    Auto-archive results of polls, instead of manual generation of reports. This is very useful when faculty wants to reuse the same polls for another class, and they don’t want to manually clear polls or re-insert polls in PowerPoint.
