I would love it if you would add another question format of a checklist. As in "check all answers that apply" from a list of answers. This would be HUGELY beneficial for polling in my classroom.
You can currently allow participants to respond with more than one option to a Multiple Choice Poll. You can adjust this setting in the “edit” menu of a poll under the “responses” menu. This will allow your participants to select more than one response. Participants can also vote on more than one option at a time by texting all of the applicable keycodes at once in a single text message.

If I have a question that has a question mark in it, it automatically gets turned into a multiple-choice question, and the text after the ? gets dropped into the first answer choice. I tried putting the question in quotation marks, but that didn't help. Don't use that "smart" system unless you add a confirmation question/step too.2 votes
We’ve made some refinements since your last request. Try them out and let us know what you think!
I'm using this for school and want the students to pick three topics, and the top winners we will cover first, but the poll only allows them to vote once1 vote
You can edit your polls to restrict the number of votes to a set number (beyond 1) or to unlimited. Enter the edit menu by hovering over the poll/question title on the ‘My Polls" screen and clicking ’edit.’ Or when you’re vieing a poll’s chart you can click the ‘edit’ link in the upper right under the start/stop button.
Grade students for participation and/or correctness (can students can 1 point for answering and 2 points for correctness?)
Most clicker systems allow options for scoring answers. I like to give all students who are present half credit and all students with correct answers full credit. Can this be done without having to do all this converting in excel?2 votes
Currently, most users accomplish this by registering their students in the system and using our “Report Card” report. Being able to identify your respondents allows you to give participation credit. The “Report Card” report allows you to grade for correctness. You do not need to export this report to excel to access this info as it is displayed from our website; however, many teachers will export the report as a CSV and then upload it into their LMS.
I can't text to the number provided from a free texting app (textplus). How am I supposed to certify the number?3 votes

I believe I saw something where you would be at ISTE 2012. How about creating some ALL conference polls that they announce on the PA system and then everyone can text answers and they can display the data on the conference screen.
How many of you plan on attending the keynote speaker this evening?
Then giving real time data! I would love to evaluate they snacks they serve us. I can think of lots of little survey questions you could embed for the entire conference attendees and exhibitors.
I love being innovative and creative!1 vote
If you are using a computer, it would be helpful to cut and paste the poll code in order to vote for the specific 6 digit number. Since you have to open a different web site, it will be easy to remember the numeric code.1 vote
You can copy paste the codes and answer choices from the summary table view. When viewing a poll’s live chart click the views menu on the right and select “summary table.”
Allow for individual poll takers to be able to go to the next question when they are ready instead of waiting for a moderator to select the next question.1 vote
This is called a survey and can currently be done with the survey view feature. More info here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/faq#surveys
Instead of a full screen version, I'd like to have the poll results look like a picture-in-picture window in the corner of the screen while the audience is looking at another window behind it. It allows for a more frequent changing of questions, while keeping the same generic answer choices.2 votes
I'd like to be able to embed a poll in a Wordpress.com blog.2 votes
make your website a colour like red light blue or green.1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion! We got rid of the stripes.

Infrastructure Canvas is the new "blackboard" at all the Universities in Utah. It will be nice to have this function instead of their dumb quizes.20 votes
We fully integrate with Canvas. You can import your student roster from Canvas to Poll Everywhere, you can export your Gradebook from Poll Everywhere to Canvas, and there are even a few tricks to embed your Poll Everywhere Polls into Canvas if you are so inclined.
Contact Support@PollEverywhere.com if you’re interested
I would like to be able to set default voting options on my account and have them applied to each poll, rather than being required to set them for each poll one by one4 votes
We now support editing multiple poll settings at the same time! http://blog.polleverywhere.com/edit-multiple-polls/
texting from Japan to the Asia region code...the information you've provided needs to be more specific than "check with your carrier" if you hope to expand your business overseas. For example, will this region specific text be regarded as international by the three cell phone carriers in Japan? If yes, then it will not be covered by their unlimited text/sms payment plan and makes your service usable. More info please.1 vote
Specific costs per message are based on the carrier and individual carrier agreement.
Currently we have two international numbers a UK based and a Sydney based as explained here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/faq#international-sms and here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/international
“Standard rate international SMS fees may apply. In our experience, USD $0.50 is typical and USD $1 is worst-case for an international text.”
A good alternative is to use web or twitter voting.

Change your instruction slide for texting. It says text a "code" to XXXXX but the phone image says "keyword"1 vote
We’ve implemented new visuals!
You should be able to remove just the cell phone texting response instructions OR the computer/website response instructions OR both when you are customizing a slide.1 vote
Great idea and this is an existing feature!
To the right select the “ways people can respond” menu and deselect/select the applicable methods. This will update the instructions displayed on the chart.
For graded questions, it would be very helpful if we were able to set a time limit. A countdown could be displayed with the poll question. When the time elapses, the poll should stop automatically.59 votes
Good news folks! We now offer a countdown timer to be displayed with your polls. You can learn more here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/user-guide#using_the_countdown_timer
