Polling for Meetings Follow

  1. Overview

    The polling feature for meetings allows you to create multiple choice polling questions for your meetings. You will be able to launch the poll during your meeting and gather the responses from your attendees. You also have the ability to download a report of polling after the meeting.

    Note:  After November 4, 2017 enabling Zoom features uses Tiered Settings. Previously configured settings for the polling feature will continue to work in the same way. Changes made by an administrator might affect meetings and webinars that use this setting.

    • PC version 3.5.63382.0829 or Mac Version 3.5.63439.0829
