How do I use Polling?

Updated on

The polling feature for meetings allows you to create single choice or multiple choice questions for your meetings. During your meeting, you will be able to  launch the poll and gather the responses from your attendees. Once the meeting ends, you may also download a polling report. Polls can be conducted anonymously if you do not wish to collect participant information with poll results.
