Today’s Teams Tip – 10 December 2020

10 December 2020

For the next two weeks, we are going to cover the Polls feature in both Teams and Zoom.

Teams Tips - MS Teams logo

Polls are now available to use with your Teams Meetings participants before, during and after the meeting.

Polls can help keep your audience engaged. They are customisable and quick and easy to set up.

After the meeting, you can capture the poll data and export it to Excel for further analysis, a meeting report or to inform your next steps for a project. 

Because it’s a big subject, we've structured a comprehensive guide to answer all your questions, walk you through the set-up process and offer a number of tips on how to ensure a great experience for meeting attendees. 

Do take a look and then try out a poll in your next Teams Meeting. We will cover Zoom polls next week so you can compare the functionality.

If you have any tips for using Teams which have really helped you make the most of the product, please email isd-webcomms@ucl.ac.uk or post your tip on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #teamstips. For further information about using Teams effectively, please have a look at the Teams SharePoint site. If you are having any specific issues with the set-up of Teams, please contact the IT Services Desk directly who are best placed to help you.
