In order for your audience to get the poll, you need to run it. This can be done at any time. You can run all the polls before the presentation starts and attendees will be able to step through them on their own. Or, you can wait to run the poll until you want attendee's to answer it.
You can also choose to close your poll whenever you want. When you close the poll, attendees will no longer be able to see it or answer it on their phone. Important: Polls cannot be reopened after they are closed. We generally recommend leaving the polls open for the whole meeting. They will automatically close when you end the meeting.
Changing the order of Polls
Click on the three lines to the left of a question and drag it to the desired location. Note: This does not change the order attendees receive the polls. Attendees receive the polls in the order they were run.

Changing the order in Presenter View makes it easier for you to remember the order you want to run the polls. You can also group them by subject matter if you aren't sure whether you're going to run all of the polls.
You can also drag the polls into Exit and Entry surveys, along with in-meeting Surveys. Once the poll is in a survey, you can easily drag it out again.

Editing a poll allows you to change the type of poll, the question, the answers or other poll settings. Editing is not possible on a running poll or a closed poll.
Duplicating a poll copies the type, text and settings of that poll. It does not duplicate the attendee's responses to the poll. This is very helpful if you have several polls with the same answers, like asking about agreement or frequency.
Deleting a poll is permanent. You lose all the data from that poll and cannot recover it. However, it's very helpful if you've duplicated too many polls or are trying to clean up before a meeting.
Tip: Use duplicate on a closed poll if you want to ask the same question during that meeting. In the report, you will need to combine the data from both polls manually.
