Make Polls / Surveys / @Polly - Native / Integrated in the product
Surveys were added to the product through 3rd part integration using Bot @Polly. However, as mentioned by some of the users, companies block bots due to their policies and on top of that, the bot asks to access some user information and no one mentioned if it is covered by the same privacy, security, compliance standards that we expect with our subscription to office 365?
It would be much better to have it as a native feature
I think we need to separate at least two use cases here
(1) embed polls interactively into meetings.
(2) conduct pools with Teams channels
To me, (2) is covered fairly well using Forms, but (1) is non-existent but should be worked on.
Ideally, it would be available in Meetings and Live Events and support the following scenario: As an organizer/producer, I want to broadcast a question into a meeting, where participants can instantly response to the question from the meeting screen. After the question, I want to swithc over and broadcast a results page.

Would be so useful to get feedback from meeting attendees. Found that the forms bot does not work that well especially with external guests in a meeting and that my customer ae not overly happy about using a third party tool that has data based outside the tenant.
Many meeting now require a voting mechanism and this would full fill that. Needs the results to be easily collected.
A native polling option would be great, even if it was basic. Polly has become confusing to some users and features a big promotion to get the paid product which isn't a nice user experience. We could use a Microsoft Form, but something that was quicker to create and could be embedded in the message would be much nicer.
There is another thread of this sort running somewhere on this site. Nevertheless, it would be wonderful if you could tweak your bots (and engineer AI on them) so they become standardized with the product you are offering.

Don't you already have this with Microsoft Forms?

How about take advantage of the moment and enhancing the polling features, by adding open text responses by user?

IS duplicate of 'Create quick class polls in MS Teams' and 'Polly highly inadequate as polling solution' - please combine to have all the votes together.
This would saves lots of msgs in chats , especially when people don't like the main message or is a multiple choice..
