NEW POLLS IN MICROSOFT TEAMS

Virtual Meeting Fatigue is REAL! One of the cures is to make your meetings and webinars more interactive. Microsoft retired the “Polls” app and has implemented a more robust solution using Microsoft Forms! After you create your meetings in Teams, you can pre-load Polls to utilize to keep your attendees on the toes, including a Word Cloud option to help you take the temperature of the group.

Currently there are 3 options for Polls in Teams using Microsoft Forms:

  • Multiple Choice Poll
  • Multiple Choice Quiz
  • Word Cloud Poll
