What are live polls?

Live polls are interactive, real-time voting systems that enable participants to provide instant feedback when they’re available for meetings, events, and presentations. 

They're an effective way to increase participation, as they encourage active involvement in setting the meeting time. People will feel that their presence is important and their opinion matters. 

The advantages of using live polls are numerous. For one, they can result in increased engagement, as participants feel more invested in the outcomes. 

Additionally, live polls help to ensure that everyone's voice is heard, fostering a more inclusive environment. Live polling also offers organizers the ability to evaluate the impact of their content or performance immediately. For example, if you’re organizing a series of events and people start to drop off in later sessions - it could be because they’re not finding the material entertaining or useful.

Doodle has proven to be an indispensable tool for real-life scenarios, helping to streamline scheduling and driving successful outcomes for users worldwide. 

For instance, conferences have used live event polling to gauge numbers and tailor their programming to attendees' preferences. 

In classrooms, live polling for education enables educators to find the best time to gather students for ad-hoq sessions. This means they can work out how many people will be attending and adjust lesson plans as needed. 

At team meetings, colleagues can use the ‘if need be’ function when they don’t think their presence is important. They can also get the confirmed event booked directly on their calendar once a time is confirmed. 

As well as live polls, Doodle also offers other features that help you take back control of your day and automate your day.
