Create quick class polls in MS Teams
In the conversations area we need the ability to add a quick question for formative assessment purposes. The different types needed would be: multiple choice, text and ticktboox. The instant feedback to the teacher can be used to judge how the class, or individuals, are progressing with the lesson.
Hi everyone, there is a really easy way to create an instant, real time poll in seconds by using the Forms bot. Students can now respond to the poll and you’ll see the result in real time.
Check out this awesome quick video showing you how to do it today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD8H0-RGh9k
This feature is only useful if it can be used in meetings. Anything that requires students to go somewhere else is going to create issues. I was hoping to be able to use the Forms bot in the meeting chat just as easily as in the main Team chat, but it appears that is not possible yet.
Great feature! Please also add a possibility to delete the poll.
Please note the forms bot doesn't cut it...what we really need is the ability to pre-create polls and launch them at the appropriate point (like the zoom polls functionality)
Include ability to replicate the same quick poll across posts. This would save the time of re-creating individual polls for posts

@justin chando Does the formative assessment that is shown in the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD8H0-RGh9k) work for teams meetings chat? I have tried to get it to work, but it would not recognize the forms bot format shown in the video you referenced.
If we could use the forms bot, we could create polls in advance and paste them in the meeting chat. If that would be possible, could we still see the answer results in Forms to see who answered what?
I want to have the link that can open the result.
When I want to see who check the result, I should go to the office365 website and follow a long long way.
It's very inconvenient.
It would be great if polls could be conducted in channels, chats, or meetings.
It would be nice to be able to do a quick poll within conversations instead of needing to add an extra item such as a Form. Sometimes you just need to ask a question such as "Do you want to have the quiz on Thursday or Friday?"
This feature should be added for scheduled Teams meetings.

It would be great if there was an integration for the FindTime Poll into Microsoft Teams meeting scheduling.
Teams should include a voting/polling feature.

I am a manager who facilitates weekly virtual team meetings. I have tried using TEAMS for my meeting, but have been very frustrated. Here are my frustrations:
1) When sharing your screen, it will only show the first screen shot. My mentors spent a lot of time showing each other how to pull up or use different reports, platforms, etc. So it is a lot of click here and then go her… click here, etc. When the presenter clicks on the second tab to pull up another layer/level screen, TEAMS does not show that screen. AS a manager, I have both of my screens full of documents and PPT that I want to share. In Adobe, I just pull them over and the team can see them; in TEAMS I have to stop sharing, adjust the screen, and share again.
2) At the end of each team meeting, we play a game called Mentor Quest. It covers WGU policies, processes, and changes. I have 4 teams of 3-4 mentors and the leader is on camera with a wipe-off board/paddle. I show the question and the team discusses, leader writes answer on paddle, and then holds it up to the camera. In Adobe I can see their answers and the process is easy. In TEAMS, only 3 people can be on camera at one time. Teams of 5-6 are too many mentors per team.
3) I decided I would stop using the paddles and use a polling modality. TEAMS does not have a polling option.
4) We like to have virtual parties and baby showers for our team mates. Also, when we have a new team member join, we all get on screen to introduce ourselves and to get to know each other. *** Everyone needs to be on screen at the same time. I can’t figure out how to get everyone on screen.
I am very creative and innovative and believe in having my team engaged and interactive during meeting. Teams makes it very difficult. The options are chat, talk, and minimal sharing.
It would be nice to be able to create a poll or other feedback recording mechanisms besides a long thread to read through.
Yes, this is excellent what's needed. Rather than everything having to be an assignment.
This kind of thing will make the classroom use truly rival the likes of Google Classroom.

It should be possible to create polls in a specific channel to take quick decisions.
Just add an option at the same place you can find emojis or GIFs when you write a new message in a channel. Something like the polls on Facebook.
