Can I convert Powerpoint slides or Turning Point polls into Poll Everywhere polls?

Convert a PowerPoint slide to a poll


If you are using Powerpoint on a Windows computer, then you can convert a Powerpoint slide to a poll.

- install the Poll Everywhere Presenter add-in on a Windows PC at pollev.com/app
- create a new slide with the Title and Content format (this is the ppt slide template that is the default slide template) OR open a pre-existing slide with this format


- the Title section will be the poll title
- the Content section will be a bulleted list. Each new line will be a new answer choice. If there are not any answer choices then we will make an Open Ended Poll Question
- select the thumbnail image of the slide you want to convert to a poll. This is the slide preview on the left side of PowerPoint
- then click the Poll Everywhere tab > and select the Convert to poll button


- you will then be offered our poll editing page to make any changes or to mark a correct answer, after editing click Insert



- we will then hide your existing PowerPoint slide and insert a poll slide immediately after this hidden slide

You'll be able to go straight to Presentation Mode and present your new polls!

TurningPoint Slide Conversion


Our TurningPoint Slide Conversion works the same way. 

- first, open your PowerPoint deck with your TurningPoint slides
- Select the thumbnail image on the slide you want to convert to a Poll Everywhere Poll
- click the Poll Everywhere tab > select Convert to poll
- you will then be offered our poll editing page to make any changes or to mark a correct answer, after editing click Insert
- we will then Hide your existing PowerPoint slide and insert a poll slide immediately after this hidden slide

You'll be able to go straight to Presentation Mode and present your new polls!



Notes:
- You will need to go through and convert each TurningPoint slide one at a time. This was to allow you to make any edits or changes
- Any TurningPoint Question types that are not Multiple Choice or Short Answer will be converted into Multiple Choice or Open Ended Polls
- We currently support TurningPoint version 7.3 and newer
