Polls (Classic)

You can use Polls to engage your attendees and focus their attention on the session. You can create Polls before the session starts or during the session on-the-fly. After you close a Poll, you can choose to show the results to your attendees immediately or later.

Shared results display total attendee responses and don't include any individual information. You can view attendees' responses after the session by creating an Attendee Report.
