Creating a poll

To enable Polling for your own use:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal  - syracuseuniversity.zoom.us.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Settings.
  3. In meeting (Basic), navigate and enable Meeting Polls/Quizzes.
    If the setting is disabled, click the toggle to enable it. If a verification dialog displays, choose Turn On to verify the change.

                 


From there, go to the Meetings page and select the meeting you would like to create Polling to. If you do not have a scheduled meeting, schedule a meeting now.

From the meeting management page, at the top, select Poll/Quizzes option. Click Create. 

Select Polls, Select Next 

Enter a title and your first question. 

Select whether you want the question to be a single choice (participants can only choose one answer) or multiple-choice questions (participants can choose multiple answers).

Type in the answers to your question and click Save at the bottom.

(Optional - Three Dots) Check the box to make the poll anonymous, which will keep the participant's polling information anonymous in the meeting and in the reports. 

You can add more polls by repeating these steps.

Note: You can only create a max of 25 polls for a single meeting
