Poll Attendees Overview

 

During a training session, you can poll attendees by presenting them with a questionnaire on which they can select multiple-choice answers. Taking a poll can be useful for gathering feedback from attendees, allowing attendees to vote on a proposal, testing attendees' knowledge of a topic, and so on.

  

To take a poll, first prepare a poll questionnaire. You can prepare a questionnaire at any time during a training session, or you can prepare a questionnaire before a training session's starting time, save it, and then open it for use during the training session.

  

Once you close a poll, you can view and share the results with attendees. You can also save the results for viewing outside of a training session.

  

Prepare a Poll Questionnaire

 

On the Polling panel, you can prepare a poll questionnaire that includes multiple-answer, single-answer, and text questions. Once you complete a questionnaire, you can open the poll at any time during a training session.

  

Compose Poll Questions and Answers

          
1    Select the Polling tab.
2    Under Question Type, select the type of question you want to compose by doing one of the following:
  •       

    Select Multiple choice > Multiple Answers.

          
  •       

    Select Multiple choice > Single Answer.

    To compose a text question, select Short answer.

Tip             

While you are creating a poll questionnaire, Training Center automatically saves it every two minutes to the WebEx folder in the My Documents folder on your computer. If you ever lose your poll questionnaire, you can easily recover it in the designated folder.
