    That could be cool and an interesting piece of data for folks. I’m not sure how many people would really be interested though.

    Do you think it would work if we only displayed this on the CSV (Excel) download our reports? We have limited space available on the web view and I don’t think we can fit this without sacrificing a lot.

    Otherwise, the closest thing we can easily track is the amount of time that has elapsed since the poll was made active until the response was received. This won’t always be accurate because a presenter could activate/deactivate and re-activate a single poll question during a presentation but should generally be accurate.

    Would that be enough for y’all?

    Hi Brian. Being able to see this information in the CSV would work for me and would be greatly appreciated. I agree that we don't want to clutter up the web view with this info.

    In my specific use case, I've been running a series of five or six poll questions with a large audience (over 100 people). The respondents aren't registered, so the first poll question I ask them is to enter their name so we can identify the winner. Once the audience completes the last poll question, I quickly run a gradebook report and download the CSV file to see who answered the most number of questions correctly. Because it's a small number of poll questions and a large number of respondents, there is always a large number of people who are 'tied' for first place. I realize that the tied respondents are rank-ordered by total time they took to answer all of the poll questions, but it would be really useful for me to see exactly how much time they took. Things can get really competitive in these situations, so it would be great for me to be able to tell the group how many seconds the winner won by in the event of a multiple-respondent tie.

    All of our paid education plans come with a feature called Custom Reply Message. This can be used to send your students an automatic message after they’ve submitted their response. It won’t automatically determine if they chose the correct answer, but you can set it up like this:

    “You chose choice The correct answer was A”

    Do you think this would work for you?

    Other than that, students can check their Response History after class to review questions they’ve responded to and that will tell them of there correctness. Just send them to polleverywhere.com/my/results

    Yes, please! This feature would be extremely useful for end users and presenters/admins. Otherwise, the presenter/admin has to generate a gradebook report and share the results with the respondents. In most cases, this is an impractical solution.

    I've enabled the 'Send Reply Message' option and added a custom response message to my polls. Respondents are replying via their web browser, not text messages. The polls are set to grade incoming responses.

    By default, the response message that appears at the top of the respondent's screen is green. However, the message should be a different color to indicate a correct or incorrect response to the respondent (i.e. green for correct, red for incorrect).

    At a minimum, the default color for the response message should be changed to a color other than the default green because, in the current state, respondents assume they answered a question correctly when they see the green notification.
