Add live voting and polling to Teams Live Events
With other platforms, you can ask participants to vote and or answer polling questions during the meeting/event. I would like to see functionality such as that available in Teams Live Events (and actually in regular meetings too).
Thanks for your comments and votes. The team is working on this and we will update as soon as there are more details to share.
Yes, very important. Please find a way to include it asap. Polling is a great tool to interact with the audience.

A vote for Teams Voting is vote for voting!
For NASBA required Continuing Professional Education for Certified Public Accountants there are requirements that we need to gather for training online to get appropriate credit and verification. Ideally we would get the following:
- Title of training
- Date and time of training
- Duration of the training
- Attendees name (first and last)
- Attendees email
- How long the attendee was in the webinar
- Each polling question and the attendees responses to the polling questions. The questions need to show on the report in the same order that they were given during the webinar. This has been the biggest issue with other webinar tools that I have noticed. Most do not have this detailed report when it comes to the polling questions.

we are looking forward to have such an important feature as polls. can you please update us when we can have that?
Is there any poll functionality within Teams Live events yet?
Ravi J commented
Allowing the polls to be anonymous, so meetings can hold secret ballots if need be would be a major asset.
Glad to see this is in the works - we are piloting Live Events for webinars and this is definitely a core feature we feel is missing.
We are also looking for a live poll functionality for Live Events in Teams!

This is something my company would love to have. We want to give users a small test after training sessions. So I am voting for this feature to be rolled out as soon as possible.
Maria Fernandez commented
Would love to have it as an option even on the Teams section - not just the events.
Peter Bech-Lutzka commented
Please add polling to Teams Live Events.

Until we have this we will not move from our alternate platform: On24.
Seems obscene that this wasn't rolled out as part of the initial launch! How could you deprecate Skype for Business and not include this in the replacement? Vital for Webinars!

Capuring participant feedback via realtime pollling / voting is so important and makes the webinar experience so much better.
The participants stay engaged longer and their attention span gets re-focused each time they are asked to actively participate.
This is the same as "Microsoft Pulse" that is supporting Skype Broadcast currently, so please just make the same thing we already have and are used available with Teams Live, nothing new.
