Conduct a poll in a video call

For meeting moderators: 

As a meeting moderator, you can create polls for participants to vote on. Anyone who schedules or starts a meeting will be the moderator. There can only be one moderator per meeting. If you transfer a meeting to—or schedule a meeting on—someone else's calendar, that person might become the moderator.

After the meeting, the moderator is automatically emailed a report of the poll results. The report includes the names and answers of the participants. 

Create a poll 

  1. In a meeting, at the bottom right, click Activities  and then click Polls.
  2. Click Start a poll
  3. Enter a question and add options for the poll.
  4. Choose one:
    • To post your poll, click Launch.
    • To save your poll so you can launch it later, click Save.
      Tip: Polls you save remain listed under Polls for the duration of the video call. After the call ends, all polls are permanently deleted. Meeting moderators are emailed a polling report at the end of the meeting.
