    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!

    I believe you’re referring to a way to prevent students from accessing other applications on their phone/device while replying to polls or surveys. Let me know if that isn’t what you all meant here.

    We don’t have any immediate plans to implement this as it is particularly invasive for us to do with our iOS and Android Apps and hurts a lot of accessibility rules.

    One thing we have been discussing, and I’d love to hear if it would work for you all. is to track any time a student leaves or closes our site/app and share that information in a report with the professor. That does involve some more work to audit the report, but helps prevent any honest mistakes for the student and keeps us out of Apple’s bad side.

    Would that be sufficient for you all?

    Are you mostly planning on presenting your polls from an iPad or do you use an iPad as a desktop replacement right now?

    We are actively working on an Office 365 integration with PowerPoint for iPad which will add a lot of presentation support similar to our current PowerPoint integration, but we don’t have any immediate plans to add touch support to all of our poll management features

    Well, right now OneNote just doesn’t have an API or platform that we can build off of. If they do start to allow embedding 3rd party webpages (that are not videos) > then we should be able to work on building that. We’re pretty much just waiting on Microsoft until then

    You can see a thread about this request for Microsoft here: https://onenote.uservoice.com/forums/327186-onenote-for-windows-windows-phone/suggestions/5776804-embed-webpages-and-other-live-content-in-onenote

  12. KWL tags for pollev

    Create an online "K-W-L" chart for educators; poll takers could tag their post as either the K, W, or L category, and Poll EV would project the responses in three columns.

    Interesting idea! Thank you. I’ll pass this along to out user research team to see if we can drum up some more support for it.

    May I ask, about how long of a response do you usually get for each of these? We’ll want to make sure we leave enough room to display these responses on the chart.

    Hi Christine,

    Could you give me a little more detail about what is happening with your Canvas Account? You should be able to export our Gradebook accounts to any Canvas Account that is integrated with Poll Everywhere. Worst case scenario it might take another user/login like a TA to upload the Gradebook to a separate Canvas account provided it is integrated on the backend.

    If this sounds like what you are having trouble with, can you email us at: support@polleverywhere.com and give us a few more details? We’ll do our best to get to the bottom of this and see what we can do

    Hope this helps!

  14. A filter to seach for keywords

    For Q&A, open ended question type etc., it would be useful to have a filter to allow faculty to quickly search for keywords.

    Especially when there is a large group and faculty wants to quickly screen for correct response/s to bring up for further discussion.

  15. 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.

  16. Pre and Post Session comparison

    It would be great to have the ability to compare respondents' answers at the beginning and end of the session to a poll in one visualization. Respondents would answer the same question at the start and end to see if their opinions changed. While this can be hacked together by creating two polls with the same question and placing the results visualization slides next to each other, it's not as impactful as seeing both runs in one visualization.

  17. Include poll timestamp in Gradebook

    The Gradebook includes points per poll, but does not tell you what polls were taken, for example, on the same day (in academia, that would equal one class period). Including the timestamp for each poll (i.e., when it was activated) allow the presenter to easier process and analyze the data in external applications and to generate daily averages.

  18. Remove requirement to type "delete" when deleting a poll

    The requirement to type "delete" when deleting a poll is excessive. I can understand a popup that requires a check next to "are you sure you want to delete?" But requiring typing is cumbersome, and honestly, accidentally deleting a question should be relatively rare for a reasonable person, and hardly worth creating this hurdle.

    I understand completely. We were also reluctant to do this however we just had too many instances of customers accidentally deleting many poll questions in bulk.

    I will say that this is not going to be a long term or permanent solution. Our hope is to implement a Trash Bin and a way for folks to “Undelete” polls within a reasonable time frame. Similar to most email providers. Unfortunately, that is a fairly complex project and will be some time.

    So, please bare with us for now on the “Delete” typing. And, we really apologize for the increased friction.

    Thank you for the feedback

  19. Add chart to remote control view.

    Right now if you look at "my activities" in the app you can see participant responses even if they aren't displayed to the participants on the screen. However, when using the "Remote Control" option in the app you can't see the responses. It would be VERY useful for my faculty if they could use the app to both control their presentations and see the participant responses in advance

  20. Line breaks in responses

    I really like Poll Everywhere, but a serious short-coming for me is the lack of a very basic function.

    I would like to be able to use Poll Everywhere to get students to practice their essay writing skills. My plan is to have students write or plan essay sections in groups in class time; be able to see the results as they come in; and at the end of the session be able to step through what is good/bad/otherwise about the answers on the big screen.

    This is important to me because, as a legal academic, part of my role…

    Thanks for the thoughtful feedback. We really appreciate it. Before I get into the specifics, may I ask – about how long are the responses that you are receiving from your students? A rough word count or so would be fantastic, I want to make sure we’re on the same page about length.

    Otherwise, there is some technical concerns around adding specific HTML in responses because we don’t want to open any security holes in replies. And, I understand your point that is a large burden on students to learn anyway.

    There’s some balance we have between having Enter submit the response instead of a new line. The vast majority of the time we have shorter responses and we want to emphasize speed for real time replies. But, I can understand confusion there. We had a lot of back and forth on which is the appropriate behavior.

    Ultimately, I think…
