A pinned Q&A activity adds another tab to your unique Poll Everywhere response page. Participants can submit responses even while other activities are being presented.
Create a Q&A activity
You can pin an existing Q&A activity or create a new one. To start from scratch, log in to your Poll Everywhere account and click “New activity” in the top left corner. Choose Q&A and enter your prompt.
Tip: Try asking “Any questions?” for a running list you can refer to at the end of your session.
Pin your Q&A activity
You can find your currently pinned activity at the top of your Activities page. If you do not have a pinned activity, click on Settings to get started.
Alternatively, you can head to My settings by clicking on your username in the top right corner of your screen. Then, click on Activity settings.
Under Pinned Q&A activity, choose the question title you would like to pin. Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Save.
To remove your pinned Q&A activity, click on (none) in the dropdown menu, followed by Save at the bottom of the page.
The participant experience
Your pinned Q&A activity will appear as a new tab on your unique PollEv.com URL. Participants who visit your response page will see both the currently activated activity and the pinned activity. When they switch to the pinned activity tab, they will be able to submit responses and upvote or downvote others’ submissions too.
When you’re ready to discuss the responses to your pinned activity, present it from the web or embed it into your slide deck. Everyone will see the results appear on the shared screen.
