  1. Build a feature for tracking attendence

    We badly need this feature. The current workaround for taking attendance is clunky. May I suggest add a scan QR feature in the Poll Everywhere App? Right now, if I set up a poll, and get the QR code, students scan it, but it will open in a web browser, so they have to re-login. We require our students to stay login in the App.
    Why QR code? We need to use the big screen for the presentation. QR code is easier to be posted in the classroom, and it also forces the students to be onsite, so they can…

    We built the QR code feature as a way for participants to join a presentation quickly without having to type a pollev.com/username.

    We have a feature that is available on all premium education accounts called “Hide activity titles” which was designed to encourage students to physically be in the classroom by not displaying the title of any activity questions on the participant site or app. We encourage using this for attendance and participation credit: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/response-settings/activity-title-blocker

  2. Use screen name instead of arrow on clickable images.

    On clickable images, use screen names instead of just an arrow or marker that way you have the option of knowing who put what in your activity. Makes it more personable.

  3. Add a confirmation to "Clear Responses"

    Because "clear responses" cannot be undone, please add a confirmation button (You've asked to clear responses. Your action cannot be undone. Would you like to continue? <Yes> <No>).

    One can too easily hit the wrong button, which is what happened to me and I lost all of my data. This is something that should have already been in place.

    Currently you can decide on a left, right, or center placement for your logo next to the title of the activity. You can do this from Visual Settings on the right side of your activity.

    1. Open the Title menu
    2. Scroll down to Logo and Alignment
    3. Select the alignment you prefer

    We’re open to investigating what it would take to add more customization. What placements and sizing do you have in mind?

  5. Allow to change usernames in bulk through the admin account.

    This reduces the amount of time having to log in to each user account to adapt to a new url if needed.

  6. Only show top 3-5 top performers in competition as opposed to everyone

    This way those who end up last or near the bottom don't feel humiliated.

  7. Poll type that can record a timestamp of the audience when being shown a video.

    Getting the audience to log time staps on their device and visualize the average of the group. I would then want to compare to the average audience opinion when shown another video.

  8. Report and archived run changes

    Can you please consider adding the functionality to run reports on multiple runs, AND to tease out data from one archived run that should have been split into two?

  9. save word cloud

  11. Percentage breakdown of combination of answer choices

    In MCQs, where multiple choices are correct, breakdown of individual choices is given. It would be great if % of the responses for particular combination would be shown.

    For eg. if one person voted for A and B choices, and the other person voted for B & C, the breakdown provided is for
    A - 50%
    B-100%
    C-50 %
    It would be nice to have % breakdown of all possible combinations.
    (A,B) - 50%
    (B,C) - 50%

  13. Add more languages (e.g. Afrikaans)

    Please add the ability to localise/translate the UI easily into other languages than those currently supported. I'm mostly presenting to an Afrikaans audience, using Afrikaans slides, and would therefore also like to have the instructions, etc. in Afrikaans. This of course, also apply to other unsupported languages. Thank you!

  14. Chat Feature?

    Hi, I see the Chat feature discussion from 2015, but it doesn't fully address my needs. I'd like a CHAT feature in Poll Everywhere (PE) - just like Zoom has. In fact, that's the only reason I use Zoom over PE. The CHAT feature allows webinar participants an opportunity to ask questions, add comments, etc. Please incorporate this to Poll Everywhere. Thank you.

  15. Allow branching in surveys, so I don't need to use SurveyMonkey anymore!

    Allow branching in the non-live surveys, so there can be follow-up questions posed to only those who respond in a certain way to a question. Thanks!

  16. Include vote results on Pivot Report for "Brainstorm" ideas results

    When downloading results on a .csv file in the Pivot view, we lose the vote results from "Brainstorm" template. Can this be brought in as a field? I know the Exec Summary report right now has them but would be great to have this feature on the Pivot too.

  17. Accumulative point scoring on grading feature

    The option for points scoring to be the sum total based on the options a respondee chooses, so when running a report this is a total figure rather than just one of the choices they selected.

    For example you have a multiple choice question with 4 possible choices, each choice is worth 25 points and respondees are able to response up to 4 times. If a respondee selects 3 options they them accrue a total of 75 pints etc.

  18. Group competitions

    Divide the participants (or let them choose) in groups so they can compete against groups on the leaderboards rather than individually. Similar to the option for this in Turningpoint.

    Group based competitiveness is increasingly applied within (higher) education.

    Personally I wish to engage with my students playfully without compounding on the individual pressures which fuels the fear of failing, avoiding of risk and the negative aspects of performativity and goal-oriented behaviour which are typically already over-cultivated in (higher) education.

  19. In competitions, ability to make questions worth different number of points

    In competitions, instead of each correctly answered question automatically being worth 1000 points, this value should be customizable, so questions can be worth 100, 200, 500, etc points.

    Also, the option of setting incorrectly answered questions as negative points.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Our current goals are to try to keep Competitions as simple and easy to understand as possible for both the presenter and the audience when it comes to scoring. We have other features in the roadmap for Competitions first but we’ll definitely consider this as interest grows.

  20. 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.
