This is currently possible by creating two separate polls and then writing your own instructions (on a slide or handout for example).
Combining two on the same visual chart would be interesting. Any ideas/concepts on what that would look like?Lawrence commented
I'd find this really useful too -- on a Live Results chart, it would be particularly useful if the "Other" that is entered became a new answer choice, plotted on the same chart, which other students could then choose to select also. (A little like the "audience favourite" style poll.)
We do have a beta feature available that can be enabled to help address this issue. If you go to https://www.polleverywhere.com/labs and enable the option for “Disable duplicate responses” this will allow participants to respond with multiple options to a single poll question without allowing them to select the same option multiple times.
It’s our initial foray into this type of poll type or option. It does still count toward the ultimate response limit which is the base of most of our pricing right now and is therefore tricky to change. It is part of a longer term plan to change our count limit to individual participants, however that will still be some time away unfortunately. It will be a significant project for us with a lot of risks.
Thanks for the feedback, sorry I don’t have better news for you just yet.Lawrence commented
That beta feature does nothing at all to address the core issue! The problem isn't students mis-clicking and selecting the right answer more than once, the problem is that PollEv treats choosing more than one option like it's more than one response in the first place. This is very frustrating, since I also purchased a plan which allows enough responses for the number of students in my class, but not enough for all of them to "respond" three times.
