Surveys allow the presenter to ask the participants multiple questions at once. Everyone can submit their responses privately at their own pace. They are great for quizzes, training assessments, questionnaires, and more. Surveys can be activated and displayed on the presenter’s response page (pollev.com), shared with a dedicated link, or even used during a presentation. See our article on how to activate and share surveys.
Create a Survey
The presenter has the ability to create a Survey in two ways. The first way is starting from scratch.
Step 1: Click the Activity button at the top left of the Activities page.
Step 2: Select Survey from the list of activity types.
Step 3: Enter a title for the Survey.
Step 4: Use the dropdown menu to select the type of questions that are desired in the Survey.
Step 5: Continue the process, adding as many questions as needed.
Step 6: Once the last question has been created, click the Create button to build the Survey and save it to the account.
Edit the Survey
Step 1: Click on the Survey on the Activities list page.
Step 2: Select the question slide you want to edit.
Step 3: Click the Edit button on the preview slide.
Step 4: When done editing, click the Save button near the bottom right.
Delete a question
The Delete button at the top right will delete a slide from the Survey. Keep in mind - this is a permanent delete. There is no trash bin where deleted questions can be recovered, so be careful before deleting any of the slides in the Survey.
Rearrange the questions
If the presenter decides they want to run the Survey in a different order, they can use the up and down arrow buttons on the slides to rearrange the questions in the Survey.
The Clear responses button on the presentation control shown on the Survey’s progress tracker slide will clear all the responses on the questions and enable the presenter to run the Survey another time.
Note: This clears all the responses for the entire Survey, not just the current slide being focused on.
Convert to Survey
If the presenter has individual activities that they would like to convert into a Survey activity without redoing the work, they should create a Folder first to drag or move individual activities into and then they can convert the folder into a Survey.
Note: Multiple choice, Word cloud, Q&A, Clickable image, Open-ended, and Ranking are allowed to be converted or included in a Survey activity.
Step 1: Locate the Folder under My Activities.
Step 2: Click on the Actions button (three vertical dots) next to the Folder.
Step 3: Click Convert to survey button to convert the Folder into a Survey.
Helpful note: If the presenter needs to add other questions to the Survey, they can edit the Survey and select the Add question button.
If the presenter needs to adjust the activities’ visual settings, then they will need to edit the settings before converting the Folder to a Survey or need to follow the same steps taken to convert to the Survey and select the Convert to folder button instead.
Once the individual activities are listed in the Folder, they will have the option to access the Visual settings to make the desired changes.
