In Poll Everywhere, you can use folders to keep activities organized.
If you only have a handful of activities, you may not see the need to create folders. However, if you’re one of those users who have hundreds of activities, then you’ll find it invaluable to organize your activities into folders.
Here are a few examples of how users organize activities into folders:
Ways to Organize Activities:
- By activity type (Examples: Multiple Choice, Q&A, Open-Ended)
- By topic (Examples: Sociology, Digital Marketing, English 101)
- By date used or created (Examples: Nov 2019, April 2018, June 2017)
This article shows you how to navigate, create, and rename folders.
You're going to want to start on the Activities tab.
To open a folder, all you need to do is click on it. Poll Everywhere opens the folder and displays a list of all of its activities.
Select Activities from the upper left corner, to return to the Activities tab from inside a folder.
Besides the folders that you create, this screen has two important folders:
Default folder: If you create an activity, but don’t specify where to save it, it gets saved here. This folder cannot be deleted or renamed.
Trash folder: This isn’t technically a folder, but it does store all of the activities you have deleted. Deleted activities remain in the Trash folder until you permanently remove them or move them to another folder.
Create a Folder
Step 1: Start on the Activities tab:
Step 2: On the upper right, select New Folder.
The folder is immediately displayed on the screen as “Untitled folder.”
Step 3: Click on the folder to open it.
This is also where you can choose to delete the folder, by selecting Delete folder from the upper right.
Note: Deleting a folder removes the folder and all of its activities, so be careful with this button. However, if you accidentally delete a folder, you can restore the activities from the Trash.
Rename a Folder
Step 1: Start on the Activities tab.
Step 2: Click on the folder you want to rename.
Step 3: The app opens the folder in a new screen. Click Rename folder.
Step 4: The app opens in edit mode. Type the folder name in the text box.
Step 5: Click the Save button.
