If you would like to take a poll during a meeting, you need to first create the poll and assign it to the meeting.
To do this, navigate to the Calendar section in Teams and open the scheduled meeting you wish to add the poll to.
In the meeting details, click the “plus” sign in the upper-right corner.
A list of app add-ins will appear. Select the app named Forms and click Add to give the installer permission to install the Forms app into Teams.
Creating a New Poll
To create a new poll, click “Create New Poll”.
We will enter the question we want to ask in the poll along with options such as “Yes”, “No”, and “Maybe” along with other options like user anonymity and the ability to select multiple responses.
Once you click Save, the poll can only be viewed by you while it is in “Draft” mode.
Others will be able to see and interact with the poll once you click “Launch”.
BEWARE: If you give a meeting participant Presenter rights, they will have the ability to delete your poll. To prevent this, click the Details of the meeting and select the Meeting Options (ellipse).
Set the option labeled “Who can present?” to “Only me” and click Save.
Launching a Poll During a Meeting
During the meeting, to launch the poll, click the Polls button at the top of the meeting window.
At first, only you can see the poll listed on the right side. The meeting participants will not be able to see the poll until you click the Launch button for the poll.
The meeting participants will see your poll on their screens, and they can interact as requested.
Once a meeting participant selects a response and clicks Submit, the results of the current submissions are displayed.
