  3. Integrate with Keynote

    Better integration with Apple and Apple products. It is very glitchy.

  5. You are great

    Just to tell to whomever is creating the test for this website in theRainforestQA platform that you are a good person. It is one of the friendliest test I have worked on and I wanted to tank you for making my job a little better

    Best regards

    A. Tester

  6. Grouping Participants

    Better way to group participants once they are linked to your polls. I can only color code the participants, but I can't find a way to sort or collect the names within a "group"

    There are a few ways to sort your list of Registered Participants today. You can put your participants into Participant Groups. These can be created on the right side of the participants table. This will have color coded circles for each participant group. You may click on the circles on the right side to show/hide certain participant groups in the table.

    You may also sort by first name, last name, email address, or created at date within the participant table. Finally, if that isn’t enough for you! You can also export the list of participants to CSV and sort within Excel.

  7. Fixed feedback - second vote

    Allow poll creator to send electric shock back to users of devices that got the question wrong - excellent motivator for pre-school.

    Failing that, allow automated response to be sent back to user based on their vote - a kind of instant fixed-text feedback, before offering a second vote with which they can confirm or alter their response.

    Ha, well we probably won’t go the route of electric shock. I can only imagine the a meeting with our lawyer after that…

    But, we do have an auto-reply message feature to allow any of our paid users to send a reply SMS or post a message on the web response page. You can see the details of this here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guide#custom_reply_messages

    Our Change Answer feature is now available! Students may now click “Clear Responses” at the bottom of the page to change their original answer. And, if they are using text message – they may text Clear or Undo to the same number to change their response.

    The combination of these two should get you 90% if not more of the way there

  8. Start/Stop controls access from list

    The Stop/Start button is more confusing now when the poll is being displayed, and there's no access to starting or stopping polls from the poll screen with a single-click. This is the only thing I dislike about the NEW pollev.

    Lock/Unlock is our new concept of Start/Stop. We have a single button on the top right of every poll display that will be a grey Padlock icon. This will lock/stop a poll question and prevent any more responses from coming through.

    For the most part, the “New” PollEv is based around the concept of activation. Usually I recommend just using our Full Screen feature to got through polls. Our User Guide will explain it better than I ever could. Check out our detailed explanation AND a video here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guide#presenting_from_the_web

    Please shoot us an email to support@PollEverywhere.com if you have any trouble though!

  9. Ability to share/transition ownership of polls

    Add the ability to transition or share ownership with people, so that re-work is limited, and changing responsibilities can be quickly adapted to without inefficiencies of re-work.

  10. Upload photos/images

    It would be a great tool to add images in order to have students text in responses.

    The order of polls in Survey View is determined by the order of the polls in your group. You can re-order your polls by hovering over a poll question, clicking on the “handle” to the left, and dragging your poll to the desired position in the group.

    Yeah! We can do this. Here’s how

    1. Open the emaze presentation you want to include a poll inside of.

    2. Click the “Media” button at the top of the screen. You’ll see a place to insert code.

    3. In another tab, open your Poll Everywhere poll that you want to embed.
    4. Click on the “Present” tab, then under “Share,” click “Embed Poll.”

    5. On the page that follows, you should see a snippet of code that you can include. Copy this.

    6. Paste the code you just copied into the emaze embed section. Your poll should appear!

    There’s one limitation to note that I can see- our control buttons do not appear in emaze’s embed method. As such, to control activation, locking, etc. of the polls, you’ll need to use an external method. For this, I would recommend using our mobile app.

  14. stop timer without advancing automatically to next poll

    have a timer that stops a poll from accepting answers but that does not advance to the next poll -- when used in the classroom, then I could have a timed cut off for response, but would still have time to reveal student answers, correct answer, and discuss before manually moving on to the next poll

  15. option to assign poll to a pre-existing group as you create them

    The option to choose a group to save your poll to after creating it would be useful. Quicker than having to keep dragging it from the default ungrouped area into the appropriate group, particularly if you already have a very long list

  17. "X" for deleting open ended posts

    Ability on the instructors end to delete unwanted open-ended posts. In a high school setting it would be nice to have a little "x" in the corner of the though bubbles in case a student writes something inappropriate, it is quickly and easily deleted.

    We’ve already got this feature and you don’t need to wait 5 minutes! If you are using registered participation you can instantly see who said what. You’ll need a paid plan to use it.

  19. Hide responses by default

    Set up the do not show responses by default, and automatically switch to show responses once the poll closes.

    Did you know you can already hide responses by default? Hide responses on one poll, and set that poll as the template for all other polls on the settings page. Voila!

  20. Allow access to the API

    I would like to have access to the API so that I can create custom results displays based on the data from students in my html-based slides.
