Tips to Create Better Zoom Polls

To create the most effective Zoom polls, keep them short and simple, with clear and concise language — people are more likely to participate in a poll if it is quick and easy to complete.

Allow anonymous voting if you want to receive honest feedback from participants. As we all know, people are a lot more truthful about how they feel if there’s no risk of retaliation.
