Hello Techhelp

 

When I’m in a Team meeting (not on a channel) I can launch a quick poll (Forms) or start the Forms bot (@Forms), by clicking on the 3 dots in het meeting chat.

When I’m in a Team meeting in a Teams Channel nothing happens when I’m clicking on the 3 dots in the meeting chat. I cannot start the bot either.

Is it because my Organisation is blocking these extra options? Something that is disabled by the admins? Or are these options not available in Team Channel Meetings?

In both cases I am the meeting organizer.

 

Thanks in advance for clarifying

Hi, I'm pretty sure Polls in channel meetings are still being worked on. But if I recall correctly it should be available rather soon.

 

In the meantime, please vote on this item in Uservoice: Allow Live Polls in Channel Meetings – Microsoft Teams UserVoice

thank you!
No worries! Will update this post if I find something new (can't verify it which I normally do).

It’s so confusing because in a Teams Channel post/chat we can use them.
I always thougt that when it is possible to use it on a post in a Teams channel, it can also be used in the chat of the teams channel meeting. All is stored in the same place, the channel post.
Keep me posted :smile:

Do we know if this is being considered? Any updates?

@ChristianJBergstrom any updates on this? We would love to use polls in channel meetings as well.

@ChristianJBergstrom 

This is a very round about, patchwork way to do polls in Channel meetings. Let it be clear that currently you cannot use apps like Poll everywhere, Kahoot, or even Microsoft's own Forms in channel meetings, directly from within the channel chat (without having to leave the meeting screen). Just wanted this to be clear so that nobody else gets the run around.

@EdT thank you for pointing this out and none the less thank you @ChristianJBergstrom for the tipp to create a poll within the channel in which the channel meeting will take place. It's different from creating it within the channel meeting itself but I hadn't thought of it, so all good. A bit confusing none the less that Microsoft never manages to add features truly everywhere but does this patchwork kind of stuff. Still happy with Teams and Forms though and with the tech community also ^_^

@Marian Erik Dobesch @EdT I was in a hurry, what I posted above is a "workaround" yes. But you can actually either create that in the channel posts, or in the channel meeting chat as shown below.

Or simply just go to https://forms.office.com and create and copy the Form link and paste that. Will direct out of Teams though.
