Polls are useful during a meeting if you want instant feedback on what is being presented. Polls can also be used at the end of a meeting to find out if participants felt the meeting, content, and presenters were high quality.

An account holder or moderator can use the polling synclet to create questions, or polls, for participants and to view the results. Only session hosts and moderator control polling management and how polls appear to meeting participants. Hosts can also cast votes. You can conduct one poll at a time.

If your account has the branding feature enabled, you can set an exit URL. You can send users to a webpage where you have set up a survey with a third party tool.

Create a Poll:

  • Login into the session as a session host or moderator, If the Poll synclet is not displayed, click the “WORKSPACE” menu and select Poll to show the Poll synclet.
  • You can add multiple options for answers by checking the box “Allow multiple answers” below the question field.
  • Once input is received from the users for a poll, you can then conduct another poll.
