Educators' Ideas

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".
(thinking…)

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.

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

  1. Ability to customize the "username's presentation" header from the top of the respondent UI.

    Right now, the header says "custom poll URL" + " 's presentation" and there is no way to customize this without editing the URL. It would be great to hide/edit it for polls separate from these fields. A lot of the time the custom URL chosen does not flow well (e.g. "Attendance's presentation") OR the user creating the poll isn't the actual presenter and doesn't want their name to display here.

    We do offer SAML Single Sign On for our enterprise level clients, however it is not available for our retail plans. Anyone who contacts us at sales@polleverywhere.com or visits polleverywhere.com/enterprise can see some more details for it.

    Otherwise, I suspect you would like something like a Google or Facebook SSO option. If that is the case it is something we have considered, but we don’t have any short-term plans to implement. It adds a significant risk towards people creating duplicate accounts as we need to add handling for people to connect their Gmail (or something similar) to their Poll Everywhere account. And, it can cause trouble and require a lot of merging if someone isn’t sure if they used their personal or work email and such.

    We’ll definitely consider it though. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Use multiple images in a clickable image poll

    Allow to upload multiple images for a clickable image poll. Like post logos of football teams for a vote.

    What sort of integration are you thinking of? I know some webinar services have some basic multiple choice polling where you can ask the attendees a quick multiple choice question within the webinar app. Are you thinking of something similar with Poll Everywhere?

    Or, something entirely different! Let us know

  9. Turn off voting while generating ideas in Q&A polls

    When using a Q and A poll for idea generation/brainstorming, it's really hard to stop people voting while still in the brainstorming/idea generation phase. It would be great to be able to disable the voting feature until the ideas are all generated then turn it on for voting. It would also be good to be able to allocate a certain number of votes per respondent to limit how many ideas they can vote for. If this was a set percentage of the total ideas that the presenter can choose, that would be a really cool feature.

    Very interesting idea! If I may ask:

    - Would you still allow people to submit new ideas after allowing the voting? Or, would it be an up/down voting phase only
    - And, would you want to just have a button the presenter can click on the chart to begin to allow voting or a different method?

    It’s a very interesting idea though! I’ll run it by the team

    Absolutely, is there anything specific with our reports that are causing you difficulties or frustration?

    Is it more how we are displaying the results with our current 5 report types? Or, that you would like more flexibility in how we format and display the reports? Or, something else entirely!

    We have made some recent changes with how our reports display open ended responses and we are in the process of updating how they display clickable image responses to be more readable and more comprehensive.

    We’re definitely up to reviewing how reporting capabilities for improvement

  12. Report customisation

    Ability to customise columns (and column formats) for exporting report data. For instance, I don't need identifier data as most of my respondents are anonymous, but I would like to have seconds-level resolution on when responses happened.

    Are you referring to our Open Ended Poll Questions? If so, the only way we currently have a way to organize them is with our Word Cloud feature which will show which words had the highest frequency.

    What kind of grouping or analysis are you thinking of?

  15. Positive feedback :)

    I work as a technical writer for a small tech company. I teach a class about writing tips about once a month to all of my fellow employees. Today I used PollEverywhere to check for understanding since I was teaching a tricky concept. Seeing everyone's answers on the screen was not only great for our discussion (and reteaching), but it seemed that everyone had a LOT of fun using the tool. When I was done, everyone clapped because they had enjoyed it so much---the kind of applause that is really sincere. After the meeting, everybody raved about PollEverywhere and asked…

  17. Answer features

    FOr open ended responses, it would be cool to be able to move Cluster answers around to manually group similar responses. This can help facilitate a puzzle piece type exercise

  19. Adding fun and spice to responses

    A way to add fun to the responses. So, if someone votes with an answer like "Seahawks rule" to a question like, "What do you need to learn today?" I'd like to be able to make it flutter away, to slap an X on it, or drop down a WTF? label. Hope this helps! Oh, and for the intriguing responses - I'd love to give them jewels or stars or you get the point.
