Need poll feature for guests
We need a poll feature for guests. Currently, guests get an error message when trying to submit their votes.
I saw the thread that mentions anonymous polls to work with guests. When I try this, the Poll/Forms Tab in Teams doesn't work and just reports 'Something went wrong' as stated in the known Teams limitation link you also provided. Am I missing something here? A step by step would be much appreciated as I'm preparing to host a 100+ attendee meeting with 99% external guests and a lot of polls…

Any updates on this would be great!
We can always paste the link to a Forms poll but we want to have it in Teams for that top end user experience (not sending guests to the browser)
Currently the status seems to be that guests in a team can't answer if quick polls are created with MS Forms or Teams survey.
Listed here as known Teams limitation:
However, there're unconfirmed reports of it working when switching to anonymous form in Teams.

Update: I can confirm that a native poll in Teams using MS Forms did work for external guest users. I'm however on an internal future build of Teams but still a remarkably interesting insight today! Doing a poll in a Team with around 800 members (mostly external guests) today. So far so good 👍
