  1. Know what question you're voting for

    When you're not logged in as a registered participant and have to submit a response, you do not know what question you're voting for (the answer form is not numbered).
    It would be more convenient to know where you at so you can keep track of your answers.
    At the end of your votes, the submit response button should be disabled and all your answers displayed as a "synthesis"

  2. Stop requiring a password to clear results

    This is a wonderful program marred only by requiring a password to clear results, which turns out to be infuriating on the spot. Please, please change it to allow clearing results without a password. Most of the time the password doesn't work from PPT so it's really a mess.

    Log in bug caused most of the pain around this issue and has been fixed. We will still require log in to clear results to prevent ‘unwanted’ clearing of polls.

    No immediate plans for direct implementation. Currently can download results as .CSV for use with Google docs and other spreadsheet programs such as excel

  4. consistent interface...

    I like best the link to the poll on the "Live Chart" view - but this link isn't displayed in the "Summary Table" view. I want to use the "Summary Table" view because it's bigger text for students in the back of the room. Pluse "Live Chart" view keeps closing after a few seconds (Mac 10.7 in Safari)

    Hi Clint,

    The Summary Table view is not meant for the same live applications as the “live chart”.

    As far as the “closing” issue, I would first update your Flash player to see if this fixes the issue. Or perhaps try it in a different browser like Firefox or Chrome.

    As far as the sizing, you can adjust the text on the “live chart” by adjusting the visual settings. More info here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/faq#visual-settings

  5. Allow inclusion of images on poll

    It is very awkward to include images in the PPT...

    This is a duplicate of our top requested feature – have a look at our main requests page! We’re working on it now.

  7. Not have instant results as an option

    For students, it would be nice to wait to show results until after all students have answered, that way students could answer the question without biased.

    Thanks!

  9. duplicate multiple choice options

    It would be great to have the same answers for each poll move to other questions.

  10. Maybe PE could create a QR code for voting

    I don't know if it is possible but maybe PE could generate QR codes for voting. A student or person could scan the picture with their QR reader and that would cast a vote.

    Web voting via QR code can currently be accomplished with a QR code generator in conjunction with our various voting links. (see comments)

  11. add comment boxes below submissions

    add a comment box below each response. For example, if I wanted my students to ask questions about a topic and submit them, other students could answer them right under the students question.

  12. fix a syntactical error on the Web Response page.

    On the Web Response page, after someone has submitted a response, there is an acknowledgement of the response being received. For example, "We received your response 'naics'." This is in the green bar across the top of the response box. What needs to be fixed is that the period should go inside the quote mark.

    I hope this makes sense.

    We looked into this and although the grammar bother us as well, it’s just too difficult to change in the code to invest the time needed. Thanks again for letting us know though!

    Hi RJ,

    We don’t support equations from Word’s equation editor; however,we are working on equation support using LaTeX! Check out this post: http://bit.ly/oy83YK Again, this feature is still in beta but please give it a try and let us know what you think!

  17. Choose what question to use for segmentation for a whole group.

    When grouping questions, you should be able to identify the question for segmentation immediately within that group and have it automatically show.

  18. More options after log in

    I would like to be able to go directly to particpants or settings after log in. Maybe a drop down menu or something so that we could choose somewhere other than My Polls.

    Thanks for the idea, but our answer is that we just need to make the entire site faster. Also, we’re planning a start page dashboard that will give you a better view of what’s new, whether that be new users, participants, results, polls, etc.
