Presenters can now create polls for participants during a conference. Presenters cannot participate in their own polls. Polls are anonymous, and participants are not required to complete a poll.

Polls can be Yes/No, True/False, or letter responses up to six answer choices (A through F).

You can also have a poll created automatically during your presentation.
