Integrate Polls for Canvas Mobile App with Desktop Version of Canvas

Integrate Polls for Canvas Mobile App with Desktop Version of Canvas

(1)
I would like to see the Canvas Mobile App integrated with Canvas on the web by adding the ability to create, launch, take, and view polls from within the browser version.

Hi 873179959

You have 5 great ideas here.  To help with voting and clarity of process we are asking people to break up these 'kitchen sink' style ideas.  All of these are related to integration, however they all touch different parts of Canvas.  Can you please resubmit these as five separate ideas?

If you have any questions let me know.  Thank you.

Can you also share the 5 separate idea links here for easy reference?

Thanks for your suggestions.  I have edited the idea to reflect just one idea, and have linked to three other ideas.

Here is another idea to go along with this idea,

That is a very similar request, isn't it snugent​?  I considered whether they should be merged but decided that this one is asking for full feature parity where the other is more limited, asking only for a way to embed polls in Canvas.

I created a prototype that does all that in the web browser. Does require a little bit of javascript programming.

Yes! Canvas Polls for mobile won't see any development until a web version is done. There is a lot of potential and I fear that if this isn't done, the mobile app could eventually be removed.

I'd vote for that. Remove the mobile app if the polls are inaccessible from a conventional browser. As a person who responds to Help requests from Canvas one day a week, I'm completely opposed to mobile-only course content. Luckily for me, I don't think many (any?) of our faculty have used Polls, and if I heard of one that did, I would ask them politely never to do it again. If they did it again, I'd forward them every complaint I got about it, and close the ticket.

This seems like something you'd vote for since it will it would make polls accessible to people not using mobile devices. I'd love to see your mobile only complaints.

I don't want to purchase another product when Canvas is so close to having a polling tool that would work.  If the polling tool worked in browsers and on mobile devices it would work wonderfully for us.  I'm putting off purchasing a replacement to our outdated clickers in hopes that this will progress.  I don't see how this tool is functional without the browser option for anyone.  I would think a classroom full of laptops might be more common than a classroom of only mobile devices.  But the reality in this BYOD world is, it is always a mix.

Hey Folks, We've begun to scope the work, I've put together a proposal for this project and I'm hoping to get the resources to make this more awesome~ both in the app and on the web. I have to archive this for now because it's not in our current 6 month plan, but your requests are definitely helping me build my case! So thank you! Hopefully, we can get this prioritized on the roadmap soon. Thanks again! And stay tuned! I'll let you know what decision is made about the future of this product.

I'm excited that you've begun to scope the work. I'd like to add that the instructors I work with would like the ability to use mathematical symbols in the questions.

Deactivated user​, are there any updates on Polls integration with mobile or web? Would love to hear, one way or the other.

 @peytoncraighill ​, any update? We've got a large unit looking to dump resources into Poll Everywhere for the lack of this feature in Canvas.
