Managing polls

Polls can be created and managed on a mobile device just like they can on a standard web browser.

Mobile moderation

You can approve open response messages from a mobile device before they appear live on-screen. This is especially useful for "solo" presenters who do not have a separate computer or display from which to moderate on stage.

Asking on-the-fly questions

On-the-fly polls are a quick way to create basic polls and collect impromptu feedback when time is of the essence. During your presentation, an on-the-fly poll can be created, activated, and presented to the audience in a few seconds from your mobile device.

These polls use simple formatting to save time. You can always go back later from the full site to customize an On-The-Fly poll.

Polling without a projector

A presenter can push a poll from their mobile device to everybody who is tuned in to their page. The presenter selects a poll they would like to get responses to, and activates it, which makes it visible on the audience’s mobile devices. The responders then follow the instructions on their own devices to participate.

A few things to remember

Data: When importing data from Google Moderator to Poll Everywhere, most of your data will transfer over, but not all. Series and responses will arrive safely, but Google Moderator does not export sub-topic responses.

Account: 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.

On-going audience feedback: 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.
