So long Google Moderator, Hello Poll Everywhere
Import Google Moderator topics into Poll Everywhere and you’ll be in good hands
Introducing the Q&A poll
The best way to crowdsource ideas
Moderator was a smart way to rake in comments and questions, but there were a few things lacking: simplicity, control, and mobility.
Simplicity - Q&A lets the audience focus on the task of responding and prioritizing – no replies to distract from the main idea. Everyone can simply submit their questions or comments, then upvote or downvote other responses.
Control - The presenter sets the flow. You can instantly dismiss wayward remarks, highlight a single idea for discussion, or pin one to the top.
Mobility - Moderator wasn’t the most mobile-friendly application. Poll Everywhere has lived in mobile land since day one. Q&A looks just as good on a smartphone as a desktop.
Poll Everywhere is a little different than Google Moderator
We're optimized for live events with a focus on speed, reliability, & simplicity
Poll Everywhere is all about getting the feedback you need quickly and easily. That’s why we ditched distractions like replies to responses, and made it easier to focus on the most important ideas right away.

Is Poll Everywhere free?
Yes! Free plans for K12 and Higher Ed educators include 40 responses per question, and the free business plan allows 25 responses per question.
Paid plans allow more responses per question, as well as the use of premium features like moderation, post-event reporting, and URL customization for your audience response page.
Will responses to questions I import from Google Moderator be counted against the response limits for my Poll Everywhere account?
No, we will NOT count any data you import from Google Moderator against your account limits. For example, you import a question with 50 responses. You select our Free Business account, which allows 25 responses per question. Your question can receive 25 additional responses before it reaches your response limit. So you will hit your limit only when you have 75 responses. Note: Upvotes and downvotes are unlimited.
Is there a limit to the number of questions I can ask?
All Poll Everywhere plans, including free plans, allow you to create as many questions (or polls) as you like. But unlike Google Moderator, your audience can only respond to one of your questions at a time. You select the question they respond to by activating the question.
I’d like to continue to gather audience feedback on all the topics in my Google Moderator account. What should I do?
Poll Everywhere is primarily built for use in live events, so our users typically gather feedback for one question at a time.
If you would like to collect feedback for multiple questions at the same time – let’s say three for our example. Create a separate Poll Everywhere account for each question you want to keep open and active at the same time. In our example, you would create three accounts. Each account will have its own unique response page to which you can direct your audience.
