A joy to use
From creating your first poll in 30 seconds to importing multiple polls at a time to easily managing sub-users, Poll Everywhere puts the user first and makes it easy to create a rock star presentation.
Paid plans offer dynamic features including response moderation, custom response keywords, grading, and the ability to automatically group responses by team – or any other attribute you can think of.
Works with any mobile device
Whatever your audience can carry in, they can use. That means smartphones, flip phones, candy bar style phones, Blackberries, tablets, and laptops.
No spam ever
You and your participants will never receive unsolicited text messages as a result of participating in a Poll Everywhere poll. Never ever.
Your full history of poll questions and participant responses are available for you to download whenever you choose – even if you downgrade your account.
Poll Everywhere provides downloadable reports including heat maps and cross tabulated data sheets – and customized benchmarking of listener engagement for your event.
The PollEv Presenter App allows you to embed live polls directly into your PowerPoint, creating a seamless presentation experience – for you and your audience.
The FAQs and User Guide provide a ready and reliable help resource to all our users. And because live polling sometimes requires live people, telephone and email support is available to users with a paid plan.
Completely flexible terms
You can upgrade and downgrade your subscription plan, whenever you need to - there's no contract and no lock-in.
The identity of participants is protected, unless they choose to share something about themselves. Phone numbers are never shared.
Serious about security
Poll Everywhere adheres to rigorous data security standards and processes – earning them the trust of the world’s largest companies.
Poll Everywhere’s backbone infrastructure and underlying design philosophy ensure it reliably scales to the largest audience sizes – including live prime time television events and 60,000 person concerts.
Organize your audience into teams and show how their responses rank up - in real time! Premium plans allow you to ask your audience to identify their teams and then compete on the questions you design. A report shows the final tally.
Ensure your audience doesn't embarrass you with some colorful responses. Premium plans allow you to manually approve each message before it goes live. Or you can set up auto-censoring.
Let your audience vote with keywords you choose. With a premium plan, you can pick keywords from the available dictionary. Don’t worry, we'll let you know immediately if they're available.
Analyze how your audience responded, correlating across poll questions. Premium plans give you the power to get incredible insights from the data you've collected.
Register and organize participants
Control who gets to vote on your polls. With a premium plan, you can register participants - letting you limit access and reliably identify respondents.
Ranking and grading
Once you've created polls with a correct answer, you run a report to calculate how each respondent scored - and how they rank in terms of correct responses and average time to answer correctly.
Especially useful with enterprise-level accounts or large events, you can create multiple users so individuals can manage their own polls.
Huge audience sizes
We have experience in handling incredibly large events. Premium plans come with additional poll responses. If you invite them, we'll make sure they can participate.
Get your audience to compete - for prizes or just glory - on the questions you ask. Announce a winner for a single question, a whole section, or for the overall event. And if there's a tie, we'll break it by showing you who responded the fastest.
Figure out who was getting the information you just presented and grade the responses in real time. You can even ask the same questions before and after your talk to see how effective it was.
It's as simple as voting. You can designate any question to be an attendance question - and run a report to see who was there. Or create a dedicated attendance question that you leave open for the first part of your talk.
It can be really hard to remember who raised their hand - and who might be too shy to do so. Polling lets you figure out who was engaged and who wasn't - and put a number to their participation grade.
Nothing gets a room going like a team competition. And Poll Everywhere makes it easy. Organize your audience into teams live at the event - and then have them compete on the questions you choose. Show the results instantly for huge effect.
Multiple choice questions
Give one multiple choice question, or several in a row. Use it at beginning to temperature check the room, throw in a ridiculous option to keep the mood light, or keep it all business throughout.
True or false questions
Fast and simple, put a statement up and ask people if it's true or false. Set up games, do quizzes, whatever you like.
Open the conversation up. Let your audience ask questions, suggest topics, do shout-outs. Of course, you can moderate the responses to make sure none are too colorful.
Q&A / Brainstorm polls
Let your audience not just suggest topics or questions, but vote on others as well. Create a live updating wall of questions or ideas - provided by and voted on by your audience. Great for structuring group discussions.
Multiple ways to vote
You control how your audience responds - via the web, texting, tweeting, or all three!
Elegant, personal web voting page
Create your own pollev.com voting page to give your audience an elegant, seamless voting experience.
Anyone with browser access, no matter where they are, can vote via the web. Poll Everywhere is also able to offer text voting in select countries - and the list is always growing.
Relieve your audience from the weariness of six digit voting. Instead set it up so that once they check-in to your session, they can respond with A, B, C, or any other simple keyword you choose.
Customizable response messages
Choose whether your respondent gets a text back after they vote - and what that messages says.
Beautiful, highly customizable charts
We offer incredible flexibilty in desiging your charts - add a logo, specify a Pantone color, change the font, even flip between bar and column charts.
White label entire experience
While we provide enormous range for customizing your charts and instructions, you can also engage us to white label the entire voting experience for your participants.
You can share your results with participants after your event by emailing a simple link. You can also share the results as they come in live by posting the poll to your Facebook page or adding it to your blog.
