How To Use Polls in Microsoft Teams Meetings
Posted By: Ryan Richardson - 5/19/2021 12:00:00 AM

Microsoft Teams has recently released a feature that allows meeting organizers or presenters to create polls prior to the meeting and launch them at any point. This can be before, during, or after your Teams meeting. When you send a poll, attendees receive a notification on their meeting screen, as well as in their chat window. 

Instructions for creating a poll:

  1. Open your calendar inside of Teams

  2. Select your meeting

  3. Open Chat with participants.

  4. Click (Add a tab) -  Forms - Add.

  5. Select Save. A new Polls tab will be added to your meeting.

  6. Click Create New Poll

  7. Insert your question(s) and options for answers.

  8. You can choose to either Share results automatically after voting and/or Keep responses anonymous.

  9. Finally, click Save to keep your draft until meeting time.
