With our Polls feature, any Hosts/Admins can quickly survey Attendees directly from their Event and pull some amazing insights!

Setting up a Poll

From your Chat Box on the right, you'll want to select the plus symbol (+) located near the message box.

Doing so will showcase a few options, including the option to set up a Poll.

You'll be shown the Add Poll window, with the option to set a question and two answer options!

Since it is a Poll, we do require you to set two answer options at a minimum. However, you can add additional options—up to 5 total!


Poll questions character limit is set to 100 characters.
Poll option character limit is set to 50 characters maximum.

You also have the option to Share results with attendees.

This will make the results of the Poll public, whereas they are usually only shown to any Hosts/Admins.

Once you're Poll is set up and you're happy with how everything looks, you can choose one of two options!

  • Share Now: this will share it with your Attendees, right there and then.

  • Save: this allows you to save your newly created Poll to share it later.

Saving a Poll will add it as an item when you select the plus symbol (+) located near the message box.

This is a great option for allowing you to create Polls ahead of time.

Sharing a Poll

Now that you have the Poll set up, it's pretty easy to share!

If you've had saved the Poll while setting it up, selecting the Poll will allow you to edit and save the changes or share it now.

When you select the Share Now option, it'll share it immediately!

When a Poll is shared, it'll add a notification item directly in the Chat Box under the Polls section.

All polls will appear in the Polls section of the chat.

For any Hosts/Admins, it will show the number of answers given for each option, as well as the total number of Attendees that answered—with a percentage included for both.

Attendees will only see the Poll itself with clickable buttons for each option!

If the Poll was Private, it will show the attendee their answer and let them know the results are private.

If the Poll was Public (the option to Share results with attendees was enabled earlier), it would show them the results of the Poll as well!

Deleting a Poll

You can also delete a Poll after it has been shared.

To do so, simply toggle to the Polls section of the chat then select the More Options (three dots) located at the top-right.

You'll see the option to Delete Poll, which will prompt you to then proceed with removing the Poll from your Event.

Just keep in mind that once you delete the Poll, you will have to set it up again.

If someone has already voted before you delete the Poll, the results will still show up in the Event Activity page after the Session has ended.

Exporting Poll Results

After the webinar is done, you can export the Poll results from the Activity tab.

Then click Export CSV:
