Make polls live and usable on Google Slides1 vote
We do have a Chrome Extension to integrate with Google Slides. If you are interested in using us in Google Slides presentations you can download the Extension here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/app/google-slides/chrome
Allow collapse all groups and surveys by default and allow this setting to be locked. Great numbers of groups and surveys can require lots and lots of scrolling or clicking when this feature is not available.1 vote
We do have a “Collapse all” feature on our My Polls page. If you click the checkmark toward the top of the page (just above the Ungrouped area) → you should see an option to Collapse all. That will collapse all of your groups and surveys. It will persist with one exception – the Ungrouped group will expand by default when you log in or refresh the page. This is something we do plan on addressing, but is actually a very difficult technical problem as that is our “root” group.
Will that work for you?
Allow us to change the font size of the responses so people in the back of larger groups can see easier.1 vote
You can change the font size of the different answer choices for multiple choice polls and the font size of the open ended responses as well from our visual settings menu. You can see some of these options here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#customizing-your-poll
Allow pictures/figures in the question text1 vote
There are a couple of different ways to show pictures while displaying our chart. We have a new side-by-side image option that you can read about here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/instruction-image/
And, we’ll be adding some improvements to that very soon. Otherwise, for mathematical or scientific expressions you can use LaTeX https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/power-users/latex
And, we also have full emoji support for our question titles
Hope this helps! And, thanks for the feedback
Allow for polls to have comments and feed back messages. Like if someone selects Choice A for a question. Allow them to receive a message explaining why A is correct or incorrect directly to their device.1 vote
You can do this today! It’s part of our Custom Reply Message feature. This is a feature you can apply to any poll question. It will send a customizable message to your participants including whether they got the answer correct or not.
It does have a character limit of about 120 responses though. You can read more about how to set it up here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/response-settings/custom-reply-message
Let us post a photo in place of typing a question! I have many quizzes that I have as PDFs that I have to retype, whereas when I used iclickers or SMART clickers I could just upload the screenshot of the question, and then type in the answer choices. It would make my life MUCH easier when I have questions that include scientific symbols and equations!!!1 vote
We actually just released this feature last week! There is a new visualization feature that will allow you to have an image displayed side by side with your multiple choice poll’s bar chart. You can see details for it here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/instruction-image/

I've been using Poll Everywhere for several years and it remains my all time favourite edtech tool. It's strength for me has been its simplicity and ease-of-use. While I always welcome improvements to the interface I am slightly wary of feature creep. So my request is for simplicity. Please don't spoil what you have by expanding the functionality to meet all users' requirements. Matt.2 votes
Thanks Matt! I promise our design and engineering teams do their best to keep things as simple as possible. At the very least, keeping the initial and critical workflows as simple as possible. We’ll have some small tweaks to the main My Polls page which I think will also help simplify some of the UI as well.
Let us know if there’s ever anything you see that starts to be more confusing than helpful
We have 10,000 participants and growing in our enterprise account. Users can see every participant in the course which is both confusing and intimidating. This is useful from the admin perspective, but regular faculty/staff users should only be able to see participants in the groups they have set up. They should be able to search for a participants across the account, but not see the entire list, unless they choose to.2 votes
This is out and available! We changed our default displays for the Participants Table. Here’s a breakdown of the logic
- If you are a regular user (faculty member), when you go to the participants page it will only load the participants that are in Participant Groups that this particular user has made. So, it will only load and display the courses that professor has uploaded
- If you are a regular user and use the Search menu, then it will search over all of the participants on the account.
- Account Owners and Admins will still see all of the participants on the account by default.
- All users may click the Ungrouped option on the top right of the page to see all of the registered participants (students) on the account
Hope this helps! And, please let us know if you have any feedback
Word clouds that can be embedded into google slides1 vote
You can do this today! We have a Google Slides integration that you can use to embed our word cloud or any other poll type into your presentation. You can get this integration at polleverywhere.com/app

One of my polls asks a question of the slide prior to the poll. I would like to jump back to that slide as a reference for my students.1 vote
If you are using our PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides integration then you can use the left arrow key and just move off the poll slide to reference a previous slide. When you leave our active poll slide, our poll will remain active and will continue to receive responses until another poll is activated or 3 hours pass.
Does that work for you?

Hi Amy! That’s exactly what our new “Survey” feature does. We launched it this year. Read more here:
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
When posting bar charts, it would really be helpful if the number of participants involved in that bar could be listed on the bar.1 vote
You can do this right now! By default we display the percentage of responses for each bar, but we are able to switch to display the count.
Click on the grey paintbrush icon on the top right of the poll chart to open our visual settings menu > then select “Count” under the Response Totals section
For more details you can go to our knowledge base articles here:
'like' function so that students can like questions/comments that have been submitted by students in an open question format1 vote
We can do this now! We have a Q&A poll type question that allows students to respond in an open-ended format > and then the presenter or other students can up/downvote the responses.
You can see more details about how it works and try it out here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/question-and-answer-brainstorm
A reset button!!!!
We need ONE button to take care three settings for the multiple choice questions. 1. Clear the responses, 2. Hide the chart 3. Hide the correct answer.
I thought when I cleared the responses, it would do these three things for me. But, I was very surprised to see the responses showed when they coming in, and the right answer box was selected from the beginning!!!! These ruined my presentation :(2 votes
We’ve got it! From here on out, any time you Clear a poll question we will update the chart visualization to hide the correct answer. Try it out and let us know if it isn’t working
We do not yet have a way to automatically “reset” polls to hide the chart because it’s a little more complicated for us to do because it goes against our stored defaults. Until we are able to update that, I would recommend using our Copy Visual Settings feature to “Hide the chart” for multiple poll questions at once.

No complaints - I just want to give some very positive feedback! I use PollEv for teaching medical students and junior doctors about radiology. It has been universally well received. In particular, the option to place a marker on an image is great and perfect for teaching radiology. I use it to ask students to identify abnormal areas on x-rays.
Thank you for making such a great product!1 vote
Hey, thanks a lot! Always wonderful to hear. I’m glad our Clickable Image Polls are working, so well for you. We have a few small improvements for that poll type slated toward the end of the year, so keep an eye out for it.
Have a good one!
Allow users to first create the voting elements and then have them vote on them within the same session. Another enhancement would be to allow the voters to have 3 votes which they could place on what they wanted. All on one item or split them up on 2 or 3.1 vote
So, we actually have some capabilities to do these right now.
You can set any Multiple Choice Poll to allow more than one response per person. This will allow your participants to respond up to a set number of times where they can vote for one option 3 times, or split their votes across multiple. You can see details for how here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guide#responses_per_participant
Otherwise, if you are interested in having your participants submit responses and allow the rest of your participants to vote on them – then I would try our Q&A or Upvote Poll. This allows your participants to submit responses and then lets the whole group up or downvote these responses for discussion. You can see more details here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/question-and-answer-brainstorm
Multiple answer questions (i.e. respondents can pick MORE THAN ONE answer from a multiple choice question)2 votes
You can! We have a setting to allow your audience/participants to respond multiple times to multiple choice question. We just limit it to obe by default. You can change this under the Response Settings for a poll question.
You can see exactly how here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/response-settings/response-limits
