Conduct a poll in a video call

For meeting moderators: 

As a meeting moderator, you can create polls for participants to vote on. After the meeting, the moderator is automatically emailed a report of the poll results. The report includes the names and answers of the participants.

Anyone who schedules or starts a meeting will be the meeting host. If you transfer or schedule a meeting on someone else's calendar, the other person could become the meeting host. By default, there is only one meeting host per meeting, but you can add up to 25 co-hosts once inside the meeting.

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 that you can launch it later, click Save.
      Tip: Polls that 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.
