Sharing with instructors and TA's

Adding subusers allows you to share a paid plan’s enhanced capabilities with additional presenters (not students). Each sub-user receives their own Poll Everywhere user account, so for a TA’s breakout session. TA’s are not necessarily able to log in to your account to run reports or create polls by being a subuser. The additional users are able to create their own polls within their own account. The number of sub-users allowed is determined by your plan, so make please check with your account administrator before adding a subuser.

Adding presenters to your account

  • Step 1. To add a subuser, go to your My Polls page and click the Settings link at the top of the page.
