  2. hide responses on Android version

    Allow the hide responses option on the Android version. I appreciate that you have an app so we can lecture from a tablet or phone, but I don't like showing the responses until after everyone has responded.

    I’m glad to hear you’ve been able to present from our Android application! I’ll bring this up with our design team and see if we can think of a way to do this. Right now, we do have a hide/show responses control in our application, but only as a remote control for our PowerPoint integration. So, we need to find a way to distinguish this from the remote control version.

    Definitely something to look into for us. Thanks for the idea!

    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!

  4. Turn off voting while generating ideas in Q&A polls

    When using a Q and A poll for idea generation/brainstorming, it's really hard to stop people voting while still in the brainstorming/idea generation phase. It would be great to be able to disable the voting feature until the ideas are all generated then turn it on for voting. It would also be good to be able to allocate a certain number of votes per respondent to limit how many ideas they can vote for. If this was a set percentage of the total ideas that the presenter can choose, that would be a really cool feature.

    Very interesting idea! If I may ask:

    - Would you still allow people to submit new ideas after allowing the voting? Or, would it be an up/down voting phase only
    - And, would you want to just have a button the presenter can click on the chart to begin to allow voting or a different method?

    It’s a very interesting idea though! I’ll run it by the team

  5. Quick Clear button for Google Slides

    Would like to see a "clear results" button on the poll so when I do back-to-back Google Slides presentations, it would be easier to clear.

    We do have an integration with the PowerPoint app for iPad. And, that is available today (I have the link below for installing)

    Unfortunately, we need Apple to make a few changes to their Keynote API before we can take that one on. In the meantime, i would recommend using a full desktop or laptop and our Mac Presenter App which does support Keynote (just not on an iPad).

  10. Make polls close when they are not the “live” PPT slide.

    Polls should not be active at all if they are not on screen in Powerpoint.

    If you advance to a new slide without a poll, the poll is still active even though it's no longer on screen. This means it can still accept responses. This isn't very helpful if you have a lot of content to cover before the next poll slide is shown.

    Whew, well I am going to leave this open for a while in case other people are interested, but this is going to be very hard for us to do. The reason this is difficult for us is that we have a lot of flexibility and different ways to allow people to get poll responses. For many of these different methods we use the same consistent concept of Activation. Where once you have activated a poll question or survey > that poll question or survey will remain active until you manually deactivate it, activate a separate question/survey, or a set time period passes (by default 1 week).

    Sharing this same activation concept helps make it clear for our users to know when/how a poll is active or not. It also helps keep our customer support team and engineering team a bit more sane my minimizing complexity.

    We could make it…

  11. Allow for personalized polling order output in created reports.

    When reports are created, it organizes the polls by name instead of order presented to my class. So instead of seeing my questions appear in the order that they were presented (ex: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q1, Q2, Q3, Q1, Q2, Q3) they appear to be organized by name (ex: Q1, Q1, Q1, Q2, Q2, Q2, Q3, Q3, Q3). Can we set it up so that if I wish to view my students response patterns over the course of the quarter in a spreadsheet that they appear in chronological order? Or at the very least, in the order they appear listed…

    Is there anything in particular that you are having trouble with regarding our PowerPoint integration? I know there a few trouble spots when using multiple computers with our application.

    For example, are you having trouble installing the add-in? Or, maybe tracking which “user” is logged in within our PowerPoint application? Or, something else!

    We’re always on the lookout for improvements.

    What do you have in mind exactly Desmond? When you get the results displayed on the screen you can make some visual adjustments (you can see details to our visual settings here https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#customizing_your_poll)

    Or, you can export the results to CSV and manipulate them for analysis and reporting. We cover how that works in detail here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/reporting

    Is there anything else in particular you would like to do? We’re absolutely interested in your feedback and use case

    Sure! So, currently we have a lot of background color options and the ability to upload a background image. Are you thinking of something like background “templates” sort of like how PowerPoint or Keynote use for slide backgrounds?

    Otherwise, on fonts – are there any in particular you are looking for that we don’t have right now?

    Absolutely, is there anything specific with our reports that are causing you difficulties or frustration?

    Is it more how we are displaying the results with our current 5 report types? Or, that you would like more flexibility in how we format and display the reports? Or, something else entirely!

    We have made some recent changes with how our reports display open ended responses and we are in the process of updating how they display clickable image responses to be more readable and more comprehensive.

    We’re definitely up to reviewing how reporting capabilities for improvement

  19. Master Account Level Reports

    I'd like to be able to run account wide reports that give me information on all faculty usage and all student usage. I know it would be tough to run those on your servers with the massive amount of data, but I'd like to be able to download a CSV of all polls from all subusers maybe limited to a specific period of time so I can analyze usage over a semester.

    Hmm, that is a good suggestion and we’ve been working piecemeal on this as we get more institution wide accounts. My first suggestion would be this – email us at support@polleverywhere.com and one of our account managers can whip that up for you. We can absolutely do that on request. It may take us a few days as time allows, but we can do that.

    Otherwise, we do have a CSV export available with some metadata for all of the Users/Faculty on the account. This is under Settings > Manage Users > Export to CSV. That will get you a report of all of the users on the account, the number of polls each created, the last time they used us, and the total number of responses each received. We have that today!

    We plan on getting this available for all registered students on the account soon. It would…

  20. Report customisation

    Ability to customise columns (and column formats) for exporting report data. For instance, I don't need identifier data as most of my respondents are anonymous, but I would like to have seconds-level resolution on when responses happened.
