Polling

Polls can be created within each activity on the agenda.  The main purpose is to increase the interaction of users in the event. 

This feature allows you to:

  • Create personalized polls for each activity.
  • Enable or disable the poll whenever you would like
  • Visualize and control your attendees' answers

Polls can also be created inside the activity itself, and is available for presenters and speakers, not just for admins who have access to the platform. To learn more about creating and managing polls inside activities, click here.
