Organizers can use polls to revive and engage an audience or to focus their attention. Polls can be created pre-webinar (see Create Polls) or in-session on the fly. After a poll has been closed, organizers can choose to show the results immediately or at a later time in the webinar.

While polling is managed by organizers only, an organizer does not have to be presenting to launch a poll.

Note: Shared poll results display aggregated audience responses and do not include any individual information. However, attendee responses can be reviewed after the webinar in the Attendee Report.

To launch a poll

  1. In the Polls pane, scroll to the poll you want to launch and click the Launch button. Attendees will see the poll in their Viewer.
  2. After you have given attendees time to answer, click the Close button.

To show poll results

  1. In the Polls pane, scroll to the poll for which you want to show the results.
