Creating a Poll During a Zoom Meeting


How do I create a poll during a Zoom meeting?


  • Zoom


  1. Start the scheduled Zoom Meeting.
  2. Select the Polling option in the menu bar.
    Note: You must be in a scheduled meeting to see the Polling option. It will not be available in an instant meeting started with the New Meeting option in the Zoom Desktop Client.
  3. Click Add a Question. This will open up your default web browser where you can add questions to the poll. 
  4. Enter a title and your first question.
    • (Optional) Check the box to make the poll anonymous, which will keep the participant's polling information anonymous in the meeting and in the reports. 
    • Select whether you want the question to be single choice (participants can only choose one answer) or multiple choice question (participants can choose multiple answers).
  5. Type in the answers to your question. 
  6. If you would like to add a new question, click Add a Question to create a new question for that particular poll.
  7. Click Save to save your poll. 
  8. Return to your active Zoom meeting and click Polling to launch the poll
  9. Your poll should now open. 

You can also download a report of the poll results after the meeting.
