Launching your polls is easy once you've already created one. Let's start your meeting to begin.
Before we begin the meeting, you should have already scheduled one, if you have not done so, learn how to schedule zoom meetings.
Begin by launching your scheduled zoom meeting, once you have your meeting open, select Polls.
Then, the poll you created will appear. From there, press Launch.
When you launch your poll, a timer will start and you will see the poll analytics change as participants respond.
Once everyone has answered, you may end the poll.
That's it! You can also view the analytics to your poll after the meeting has concluded.
First you must login to Zoom through their website. You can still use your SSO login, or the same method you used to host the meeting in which you are accessing the report.
In your login page, go to Reports.
Then, under Usage Reports, select Meeting.
Select the drop down Menu, and click Poll Report.
Under Poll Reports, you will find all meetings in which you had conducted polls. To view the report, select Generate.
The report will generate and you can now download it.
Success! The poll will download as an excel file.
We recommend you change the name of the file to match the poll title for better organization since the file will download as a randomly generated name.
And that's it! Now, you can be an expert in creating interactive polls to get your participants involved in your next Zoom meeting, and for record keeping purposes, you can download them too!
