Inserting surveys with Poll Everywhere for Windows
With Poll Everywhere for Windows you can insert surveys directly into your PowerPoint presentations. Follow the steps below to get your presentation deck set up and begin surveying your audience in real-time.
Step 1: Open a new or existing slide PowerPoint presentation.
Step 2: Click the Poll Everywhere tab.
Step 3: If you are not yet logged in, click the Log in button. (If you are already logged in, skip to Step 5.)
Step 4: Sign in using your Poll Everywhere credentials. (If you do not yet have a Poll Everywhere account, the Log in window has a tab where you can sign up for a free account.)
Step 5: Click Insert then select Survey from the dropdown list.
Step 6: Select the survey you want to insert by clicking the checkbox then tap the Insert button in the bottom right.
A placeholder slide with a mockup of your survey will be inserted into the deck. This placeholder slide is indicated by blue marks in the corners that tell the system where to display your activity. You are now ready to present.
Step 7: Switch to Slide Show/Presentation mode. You can do this three ways:
- Press the F5 key on your keyboard.
- Select the Start From Beginning command on the Quick Access toolbar.
- Click the Play Slide Show command at the bottom of the PowerPoint window.
The survey slide will provide the response URL to your audience where they can complete the survey.
Helpful Tip: While it won’t display individual answers, the slide will update as audience members respond displaying how many people have begun the survey and how many have completed it.
