Template poll

Many companies generate branded slide templates for their organizations. This ensures a consistent and increased professionalism across the organization. Frequent presenters know how tedious it can be to click through dozens of activities to change one setting, like adding a logo, selecting the company-approved background color, or enabling text message responses.

The template poll allows you to change all the settings one time, on one activity. Then you can apply those freshly-polished settings to all your organizations future activities.

Important note: Do not use an anonymous activity as your template. Doing so will cause all future activities you create to be anonymous. While other settings can be changed, once an activity is made anonymous it cannot be undone.

Here’s how to create a template:

Step 1: Set up one poll exactly the way you like. Make sure to set the visual settings, response settings, and lock settings.

Helpful tip: It’s best to use a multiple-choice type, so you can choose the look of the labels and bars too.

Step 2: After you have created an activity you would like to use as your template, click the Settings icon in the top right corner and select My settings.

Click setting icon

Step 3: On the My settings page, click the Poll settings tab.

Select Poll settings

Step 4: Click the Set button under Template poll.

Step 5: Select the activity you prepared as your template then click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

Helpful tip: An activity template set at the account level does not supercede those created by the individual percenters. It gives them a baseline to start from, but they are still able to create a personal template specific their their department and needs.
