You can find it in multiple locations in Teams via top navigation bar, message extension, sidebar navigation (“…” button) and Teams app store. In addition, you can add it directly to your meetings or chats without login or setup process.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Scenario 1 – Add Polls app when scheduling a Teams meeting </STRONG></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_1-1661501710230.png" style="width: 681px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399092i3F5B3A53C2E209E3/image-dimensions/681x519?v=v2" width="681" height="519" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_1-1661501710230.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_1-1661501710230.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Today, you can install the Polls app when you’re scheduling a Teams meeting, so that you can leverage the polling experience to engage directly with your audience or drive for decisions and alignments. In the screen shown above, you can access the Polls app via the “+” button at the top navigation bar in your Teams meeting.</P> <P><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Scenario 2 – Need to quickly launch a poll during your Teams meetings</STRONG></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_2-1661501710233.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399091i7A50EE7DDD774E87/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_2-1661501710233.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_2-1661501710233.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In case you didn’t get a chance to add the Polls app to your Teams meeting, you can still install and launch a poll within just a few clicks via the same “+” button at the top navigation bar. Once the Polls app is added, you can click on the tab, and you will see a list of poll suggestions in the side-pane to give you a jump-start.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Scenario 3 – Polls can also be used in the chats for your meetings and channels </STRONG></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_3-1661501710244.png" style="width: 697px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399093iB47DCC81A9686BA7/image-dimensions/697x467?v=v2" width="697" height="467" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_3-1661501710244.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_3-1661501710244.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Polls app can also be found in the “…” button (aka.

You can add them to the Teams meeting chats, group chats or your chats in the Teams channels, as polls are effective in these occasions to drive consensus and decisions.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Scenario 4 – Start from Teams app store and add Polls directly to your meeting or chat</STRONG></P> <P>If you start searching for apps from the sidebar navigation in Teams, either via “…” button or clicked in for the app store, you can find Polls app in both locations.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_4-1661501710247.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399094i5DD07C73D6C798AB/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_4-1661501710247.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_4-1661501710247.png" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_5-1661501710252.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399095i7C5878E524181318/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_5-1661501710252.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_5-1661501710252.png" /></span></P> <P><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P>This will take you to a different route of finding the Polls app first, then adding it to your designated meeting or chat.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_6-1661501710256.png" style="width: 803px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399096iD9D2CAA736C9BDAA/image-dimensions/803x644?v=v2" width="803" height="644" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_6-1661501710256.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_6-1661501710256.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Polls and Forms</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_7-1661501853823.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399097iB952C46A7B7E5710/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_7-1661501853823.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_7-1661501853823.png" /></span></P> <P>Both Polls and Forms are developed by the Microsoft Forms team, and Forms app was initially designed for Teams meetings in a lightweight experience to collect quick feedback for an engaging in-meeting experience. As we’ve seen Forms app being utilized in more Teams meetings and the naming convention might not always be intuitive, as many of the Teams meeting users are also <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Forms web</A> users and they are expecting a survey experience. With this understanding, we’ve rolled out the Polls app for an intuitive experience and distinguish the two experiences with separate apps in Teams, and we will continue to iterate the Polls app with more functionalities and improved experience.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Skylar_Pan_8-1661501867122.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/399098i1D7257C0134AD161/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Skylar_Pan_8-1661501867122.png" alt="Skylar_Pan_8-1661501867122.png" /></span></P> <P>Our plan is to gradually deprecate the Forms app in the context of Teams meetings, and to reserve the Forms app for a survey experience. Currently, there is a notification (screenshot shown above) displayed if you are using the Forms app in Teams meetings. We will ensure sufficient time for most of our Forms app users to move over to the Polls app.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 26 Aug 2022 08:21:27 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-forms-blog/newly-launched-app-with-intuitive-and-easy-to-access-polling/ba-p/3610091 Skylar_Pan 2022-08-26T08:21:27Z Enable time limit for students in your test https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-forms-blog/enable-time-limit-for-students-in-your-test/ba-p/3608291 <P>We are excited to share how time limit works in Microsoft Forms, an important feature to help students to practice their time management skill.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>How does it work?</H1> <P>When students open a quiz with time limit, they will land into a start page before they formally start the test.

For educators and company employees alike, this remote learning comes with challenges. That’s why the Microsoft Forms team was excited to release <A href="#" target="_self">Polls in Microsoft Teams meetings</A> in November 2020 to address some of these challenges. This feature enables meeting organizers to engage and educate their attendees effectively using polls.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Since then, we have investigated how you can better leverage Polls in Teams meetings, having heard your questions like, “how can I keep my attendees engaged?” or “how effectively are they absorbing the information presented?” Even as we transition to the hybrid work environment, these questions remain ever relevant.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Today, we want to share tips on using polls for medium to large-sized Teams meetings intended to educate your participants. We hope that these suggestions, which are based on our collaboration with researchers, can help you confidently run virtual meetings that are engaging and effective for your participants.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>(1)</H3> <H3>GOAL: Engage your audience early.</H3> <H3>TASK: Poll attendees at the beginning of your meeting to reduce psychological distance and set expectations.</H3> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Especially during a time when physical proximity can’t be achieved, it’s important to bring your attendees closer together psychologically. Based on participant changing theory, we understand that how someone feels in a group can affect their attitude to the learning and collaboration at hand.</P> <P><BR /><STRONG>How can we help attendees feel included in the meeting?</STRONG></P> <P>1. Ask a multiple-choice icebreaker question, like “How are you feeling today?” or “What part of the company are you from?” Today, Polls in Teams meetings often automatically suggests such questions as you prepare for your polls (see "Poll suggestions" below).</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Suggestions for polls in the meeting tab before any polls are created" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/310834i7C60225C171477DB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Poll Icebreaker suggestions.png" alt="Suggestions for polls in the meeting tab before any polls are created" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Suggestions for polls in the meeting tab before any polls are created</span></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Suggestion for polls after you click “Create New Poll.”" style="width: 504px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/310835i07C7E57B52118ECD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Poll Icebreak suggestions 2.png" alt="Suggestion for polls after you click “Create New Poll.”" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Suggestion for polls after you click “Create New Poll.”</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>2. Collect questions they have for the class or training, like “what questions do you have before we get started?” With our upcoming Word Cloud poll (<A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">public roll out to begin approximately end of September/early October</A>), you can ask for such open-ended responses.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Creating a Word Cloud poll" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/310836i6A41332CA2CCA168/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Word Cloud Poll.png" alt="Creating a Word Cloud poll" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Creating a Word Cloud poll</span></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Showing results of Word Cloud poll" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/310837iC3CD6D45CC913880/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Word Cloud Poll - 2.png" alt="Showing results of Word Cloud poll" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Showing results of Word Cloud poll</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>3.&nbsp;Ask a multiple-choice knowledge check question related to the upcoming information you plan to present.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>4. Setting expectations at the start of the meeting can also encourage engagement. Based on expectancy theory, we understand that determining your goals and expectations can generate personal motivation. Thus, you could ask via Word Cloud poll a question like, “What do you expect to learn today?”</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>(2)</H3> <H3>GOAL: Help your audience reset and re-focus.</H3> <H3>TASK: Poll attendees during your meeting to recapture wandering attention.</H3> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>While using our computers, we can easily get distracted or lose focus. <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Studies</A> have shown that adults’ attention spans last around 20-30 minutes. Therefore, long class or training sessions could lead attendees to drop their concentration.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>To help them regain their focus, you can use polls to:</P> <OL> <LI>Ask a fun question, allowing them to reset.</LI> <LI>Check the status of your learners (“Regarding the material we just covered, how do you feel about your current level of understanding?”)</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>(3)</H3> <H3>GOAL: Evaluate audience understanding of meeting content and encourage engagement.</H3> <H3>TASK: Poll attendees during the meeting for a quick knowledge check.</H3> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>During this meeting, keep in the mind the value of instant feedback. Because immediate evaluation can enhance one’s sense of order and state of concentration, you can launch a quick knowledge-check poll based on information you just presented to encourage attendees to stay engaged in the content. With <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Polls in Teams meetings</A>, you can use our Multiple Choice Quiz poll to do so.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Multiple Choice Quiz poll" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/310840i5B48C3B45F186DF2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Quick Quiz for Biz scenario_1600-900.gif" alt="Multiple Choice Quiz poll" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Multiple Choice Quiz poll</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Even with a simple “True or False?” question, quizzing your attendees can increase awareness of their understanding of the material. This self-awareness and self-monitoring help them stayed engaged with learning as well.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>(4) GOAL: Provide your audience with a sense of belonging and encourage future engagement</H3> <H3>TASK: At the end of your meeting, poll attendees by asking for honest feedback.</H3> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Like our goal to reduce psychological distance at the start of the meeting, we hope to create a sense of belonging at the end of the meeting, too. By asking attendees for their opinion at the end of the meeting, we signal how we want to include their perspectives. This sense of belonging can encourage their contribution and engagement in the future. &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For example, you can use <A href="#" target="_self">Multiple Choice Polls</A> to ask questions like, “On a scale of 1-5, how useful did you find the information presented?” or “On a scale of 1-5, how satisfied are you with the quality of the instructor?” You can also use <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Word Cloud polls</A> to ask something like “What questions do you still have that were not addressed?” to allow them the opportunity to share their thoughts directly.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>Next steps</H3> <P>We hope that these four tips provided guidance on how you can take advantage of polls whenever you are educating others in a virtual Teams meeting.

As we improve Forms’ intelligence service, we support you in not just creating surveys and polls more easily, but also in extracting key insights from data in an understandable way. Read on to learn about three of these improvements: Estimated Time, the Insights button, and Word Clouds.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Automatically Add Estimated Response Time (Design Intelligence)</H2> <P>You may have noticed that while creating your surveys, Forms now provides an estimated response time for longer surveys. Our intelligence service can now predict the approximate time it will take for someone to complete the form, depending on the types and number of questions on the form. You can add this estimated response time (as seen below) in the subtitle of the form, which can help increase the form’s response rates.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Add Estimated Time to Encourage Response Completion" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/274453iB02B1AE6AC68FC1C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Estimated Time.png" alt="Add Estimated Time to Encourage Response Completion" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Add Estimated Time to Encourage Response Completion</span></span></P> <H2>Engage in a New Experience for Forms Data Insights</H2> <P>In the past, after collecting a few dozen responses in your survey, you may have noticed the "Ideas" button appear at the top of the Responses tab of your Forms design page. By clicking on “Ideas,” you would have seen intelligence-based data insights on your responses.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>From now on, you might instead see an “Insights” button under a particular question. If the Forms service can provide insights on the responses to that question—which is dependent on the number of responses and the data itself—you will see this “Insights” button. With this change, you can more clearly interpret the insights Forms provides for a specific question.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Click the Insights button to uncover analysis of your responses" style="width: 768px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/274456i5569C564EA96EB8F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Insights Button.png" alt="Click the Insights button to uncover analysis of your responses" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Click the Insights button to uncover analysis of your responses</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As some of you are already familiar, these insights include sentiment analysis on open-response questions, score distribution for ratings questions, and association rule analysis, which notices patterns in responses across multiple choice questions. These insights are presented in easy-to-read data visualizations, which you can pin for quick future reference.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Visualize Open-Text Responses with Word Clouds (Insights)</H2> <P>We are excited to introduce a new intelligence-based data insight type: word clouds for open-text questions in Forms. The key phrases from the response to that question will be extracted and be visualized in a word cloud, offering you a quick view on the top text phrases among the responses.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="View open-text responses in word clouds" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/274459i8CFB58B3DE383544/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Forms Word Cloud 1.png" alt="View open-text responses in word clouds" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">View open-text responses in word clouds</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As seen above, when you click any key phrase in the word cloud, you can find statistics on how many respondents and what percentage of respondents mentioned this phrase in their response.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Click the word cloud to see exact responses" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/274458i23C300B88352BECC/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Forms Word Cloud 2.png" alt="Click the word cloud to see exact responses" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Click the word cloud to see exact responses</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>Additional FAQ:</H3> <P><STRONG>When will this become available?</STRONG></P> <P>We will begin roll out of word clouds to open-text questions in regular forms at the end of April. Meanwhile, as Open-Text Polls for Microsoft Teams meetings start rollout at the end of May or early June, word clouds for these polls will become available as well.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Which languages are supported? </STRONG></P> <P>Word clouds will support English and Chinese text in our first stage of this work. We will expand to additional languages in the near future—please stay tuned.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Will I always get a word cloud for my open-text questions?</STRONG></P> <P>No, not always—this is because the Forms service may not have found any meaningful results to show, especially if you have only received a small number of total responses. You can come back to check for a word cloud after collecting more responses.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Next Steps</H2> <P>We hope you explore these latest updates as they become available to you.
