Polls are great to engage your attendees and keep them interested. Here are some uses:

  • Keep your attendees' attention by giving them opportunities to participate.
  • Start a discussion by asking attendees their opinion on something.
  • Ask questions to see how well they understood what you presented.
  • Use reflective questions to help them retain what you presented.

Attendees respond to your poll by selecting one of up to five responses. You decide how many choices attendees see. NOTE: Polling is not supported in the mobile app.

Tell Me

  1. Open the Collaborate panel by clicking on the purple expander.

  2. Select Share content.

  3. Select Polling.

  4. Select Multiple Choice or Yes/No for the question/answer format. Optionally, type the poll question or leave it blank. Poll questions have a 110 character limit.

  5. If using Multiple Choice, give up to 5 answer choices. Type your answer choices or leave them blank. Answer choices have a 90 character limit. If you leave the choices blank, attendees see numbers for their choices.
  6. Select Start.

Screen readers only announce the numbers for each choice. If you have attendees who use screen readers or you leave the choices blank, make sure attendees know what choice each number represents.

Monitoring your poll

After you start the poll attendees are asked to make a choice. All they see are their response choices.

The poll overview gives you a response count for each choice. It even tells you how many attendees haven't responded yet. If you want to see how each attendee responded, or even who hasn't responded, go to the Attendees panel.

The choices disappear so they don't block anything on the main stage. Attendees see their own choice after they make a choice. They don't see the poll results unless you show the responses. Attendees never see how anyone else has responded.

Show Responses

  • Select Hide Responses to hide the results from attendees.
