The polling feature for meetings allows you to create single choice or multiple-choice polling questions for your meetings. You will be able to launch the poll during your meeting and gather the responses from your attendees. You also have the ability to download a report of polling after the meeting. Polls can also be conducted anonymously, if you do not wish to collect participant information with the poll results.

Creating a poll

Note: You can only create a poll after you have scheduled your meeting.  You can create a maximum of 25 polls for a single meeting and have a limit of 10 questions per poll.  Only the original meeting host can edit or add polls during a meeting. If the host or co-host role is transferred to another user, that user will only be able to launch polls already created. 

  1. After you have scheduled your meeting, sign in to the Zoom web portal: https://nic.zoom.us
  2. Click Meetings.

  1. Click on your scheduled meeting.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click Add to begin creating the poll.

    • (Optional) Check the box to make the poll anonymous, which will keep the participant's polling information anonymous in the meeting and the reports.
    • Select whether you want the question to be single choice (participants can only choose one answer) or multiple-choice question (participants can choose multiple answers).
  2. Type in the answers to your question and click Save.
  3. To add a new question, click Add a Question to create a new question for that poll.
