  1. 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

  2. Adding teacher input

    See if you can design a platform like Class Flow which combines slide sharing with polls. Also, you can start getting teacher input on questions to post per grade and subject content area to increase your database of questions.

  3. Download Poll List with Meta Data only

    Menu option to download .csv file that consists of a list of your polls with columns for: question; question type; creation date; modified date; # responses; # runs; whether responses have been deleted; when deleted; group (if any) to which the poll belongs. this would give us ability to sort the polls and consider how to reuse polls, etc. essentially, the ability to download the meta data separately from the data. Right now reports allow you to include some meta data but as part of the download of data content.. great product!

    This is an interesting one. I can understand the desire. We do store most of the information that you specified (questions type, creation date, last modified date, # responses, and # of runs could be calculated. We do not track deleted responses/groups after a few days).

    Will it work for you if we ONLY display this information on the CSV download? Otherwise, in the short run if you are interested in some of that information and if you’re willing to wait a few days – you can contact our support team at support@polleverywhere.com and if it’s reasonable, we will be happy to try and get some of that information for you manually as a workaround.

  4. Make RF clickers obsolete

    Figure out the tough engineering problem of LTI integration, even if it is a different version of Poll Everywhere that is integration only. I want PollEv (or similar product) replace crude RF clickers, not simply be a substitute for them.

  6. Video

    Let us post videos. It would be cool to show students video clips through youtube or self uploading and have students answer questions off of the videos.

  7. Realtime Line Graph

    I would like to see a feature on PollEverywhere that allows a progressive poll throughout a class period, which shows up as a line graph.

    For instance, I may ask a question at the beginning of the class, and students answer. Some may change their minds as the lesson progresses and we read more of our book, so I could take another poll with the same question. Then again at the end of class. We could discuss how opinions change based on perspective.

    Interesting idea! Instead of a Line Graph – do you think it would work for you if we instead have Grouped Bar Charts, so you can compare before/after?

    This was you would have two bars of different colors to compare the before/after responses for each of the answer choices to a multiple choice poll. It would not let you pinpoint the exact time the students changed their minds > but it does give you a very easy/quick way to compare how their choices changed from the beginning vs end of a lesson. It would look something like this: https://goo.gl/Bgf9oW

    What do you think?

  9. Instant Crosstabs

    Maybe this function is around already. I'd like a quick way to display crosstabs. For example, a way to show results from men and women, etc. I've done this in the past with a few steps involved, but it's not quite as slick as I'd like it to be.

    Yeah, it sounds like you are describing our Segmentation Feature. You can see some details about how this feature works here: https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/160751

    We have some plans to really improve and revamp this feature to make it easier and prettier, but it’s still a little ways off yet. In the meantime, I’d recommend that article for how it works.

    Is there anything in particular about the feature that is confusing or annoying?

  10. 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.

    We do have a setting to “Show total results” which will show the total number of responses you have received for an individual poll question. It will be displayed on the bottom right of the chart. You can use this to get a count of responses and then chose to move on when it hits an amount. To show the total results on the chart:
    Click the Paintbrush icon to open visual settings menu > select Show total results at the bottom of that menu.

    Would it be enough for us to allow you to preset an amount and when the “Total Results” nears or hits this number we provide some alert on the chart to notify the presenter?

    I’m hesitant to have us try and guess when a poll question has received all of the responses that it will receive. We do not want to try and control the…

  13. Post multiple responses from one sender

    Allow users to send multiple responses. For example, give their own response and then respond to another's post.

  14. Have full screen mode on the web able to take slide clicker inputs.

    Have full screen mode on the web able to take slide clicker inputs.

    This sounds redundant because you have PollPresenter for Powerpoint/Mac, but I find that fullscreen presentations from the web are much faster and more reliable than PollPresenter.

    I believe this is currently possible with some slide clickers. Fullscreen mode honors left right arrow key inputs to navigate between polls. So, if your slide clicker can send these keyboard inputs, you should be all set.

  15. I need a SMS number from India

    My audience will not be willing to send their feedback to a +61 country code number and incur international text charges!

    Thanks for the feedback all. There are a few different workarounds that might work for you all, but we don’t have anything explicitly for this.

    We do have a CSV importer to import poll questions. You can read about that here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/create-activities/import-questions

    For students who missed class or just for generally sharing the content: I recommend either our Bulk Screenshot tool or maybe printing out an Executive Summary report.
    - the bulk screenshot tool will take screenshots of up to 10 polls that can then be shared via email or any other way that works for you. To do this: Go to the Polls page → select the polls you want → Click the grey Download button at the top → select Screenshots.

    For exporting to CSV for records or internal purposes, I recommend using our Pivot Response Table report and then exporting that to CSV. That will create…
