      Well, this is tough. Presenter View is not specifically supported, however we do usually work with it. We do have a workaround setting that we can apply if you are using PowerPoint for Mac. If that’s the case, please contact us at support@polleverywhere.com and we can walk you through our “Force Monitor” feature.

      Unfortunately, we do not currently have a similar workaround for Windows. I opened a request with our Windows Slideware team to investigate if there’s something we could do as a workaround in the short-term. Otherwise, Microsoft does not have Presenter View available in the API (integration format) that we use. So, for us to fully with Presenter View we’ll need to do some reverse engineering to figure out what kind of math the Microsoft engineers are using here. Which is just tough for us.

      I’ll see what the team thinks and try to get another update on…

      I would highly recommend anyone that is having display issues in Presenter View to send a support email to our experts at support@polleverywhere.com -> they'll be able to ask some clarifying questions to get to the root of the problem for you all. Normal response time will be within one business day

      It is also possible that some of you might be experiencing a DPI issue common with Windows 10. It's a non-standard Windows setting to increase the size of the font on certain monitors.

      This setting can be a bit tricky to find, as they seem to rename it with every new iteration of Windows. Here is a good article about how to address this setting in: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

      You will want the DPI scaling/Text scaling set to 100%.

        We have a lot of customization options for how the bar chart (and other visualizations) look on the big screen. Is there any kind of visualization option you had in mind?

        These include the sizing of the different chart elements, colors, background image, logo, side-by-side image, and a lot more. You can read about them or watch a vide of how they look here: https://www.polleverywhere.com/guides/presenter/getting-started#customizing-your-poll

        Thanks Deborah. I've spoken with our visualization team that works on the charts about this. It should be doable for us to make some changes for the Word Cloud colors. They're working on a new poll type right now, but I've got those word cloud improvements on the slate for us to begin right after - so, long as nothing major comes up

        Thanks for the feedback!

          We do offer the ability to customize the body of the invitation email. Just click the “I’d like to customize the invitation message” and our hope was that this would be enough to give context to anyone receiving the message.

          I’m hesitant to add an option to override the name of the person sending the invite because we want to have a public audit trail of who on the account invited the new users. For example, an account that has multiple Administrators may want to have some trail of exactly who sent the invite and who to follow up with in case there are issues.

          There’s other better ways we can do this, but I don’t want to overcomplicate the invitation process with more settings.

          I will have our design team look into setting the invitation as coming from the Organization Name in a prominent place in the email. I…

          Hi Sarah,

          Ah, okay I get it. Thanks!

          We do plan on allowing the ability to set a default invitation message for an account, essentially you'd be able to save and re-use a custom invite that you've made for the account. Unfortunately, saving these emails templates turned out to be a little more difficult than we thought and we decided to wait until after we see how much people are actually sending custom invites to build it.

          If that solution works for you, then that's what I'll bring up to the team and get it back on the roadmap for us. We are actively working on some improvements to our user invitation workflow and this could be a nice feature for that project.

            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,

            I think that for the way our team is envisioning this, it would be perfect if the data was just available in the report. We are testing a new design for our website and want to see how quickly users can find certain items.

            Thanks for writing about this so quickly!

            Melanie"

              Hi William,

              Thanks for using Poll Everywhere and providing feedback!

              This is an interesting idea, but it’d take quite a bit of development time away from other features we’re currently working on. I’m not an educator, but as I think through this, I wonder in how many situations this would be helpful. My concern is that when numeric answers are concerned, they aren’t often always close. For example, if students are solving a problem using a formula, they could get the formula aspect slightly wrong and get an absurd answer, even if they were just one step off. I guess my expectation is that we’d often find that answers that should receive more credit could be further from the right answer and vice-versa.

              Hi Christina - unfortunately we do not have a way to accept a range of numerical answers right now. We could only accept free text and allow your participants to submit any number of letters OR our Multiple Choice Polls.

              It is something we hope to get to in the future, but is still more in the "future dream" phase.

                Cool, thanks for the link to the video Matt! It looks like you're interested in syncing the responses from registered participants within Poll Everywhere > with a CRM or similar tool. I'll do some preliminary research on what this might take technically and see if we have anyone else interested in this sort of thing. Thanks for the insight!

                  We’re working on solving this through two different ways with our PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides integrations.

                  1. We’re working on creating a quick and easy way to insert up to date screenshots of your polls into your slide deck with a single button. This way you can easily create “Review Decks” to send out after class or to post on your LMS.

                  2. This is the real interesting one (for me anyway). We’re going to change the old grey placeholder image with a screenshot of the poll. So, you’ll be able to see your poll question, answer choices, and responses in edit mode > go to presentation mode > and it will load our live polls as normal. This will be a longer project for us because we’ll need to work out how often to update these screenshots and to make sure they’ll work with all the different…

                  Okay great! So, we have two different problems here.
                  1. you want to be able to see the poll question on the regular powerpoint slide when you are not in slideshow mode.
                  - this is a little tough with the way our current add-in works. I would say this in definitely a dream of ours, but it is a little ways off yet. In the meantime, I recommend looking at the Notes section of PowerPoint to see the title of the poll question

                  2. you want to be able to send the PowerPoint deck with the poll results to your students so they can review the content on their own time. Perhaps even posting the deck on Canvas or Blackboard.

                  - the second part is in our immediate plans and we hope to start working on this pretty soon. This would allow you to share the PowerPoint deck including the poll results from the class/lecture without those students/colleagues to install our add-in or be in slideshow mode.
