What does the Interactive Poll box do?

The interactive poll box allows you to create quick, simple polls to add to your guides.

Most times this box has been used as a gauge to see if a guide has been helpful.

Many people use these in their instruction sessions as a way to engage their audience and get immediate feedback. We think that's awesome!

Really, you can use it for whatever comes up - including creating a box on the fly in a class or meeting!

There is no option to send feedback in this box. It is simply a poll.

If you'd like to receive text feedback from your users, check out the Feedback Box.
