Top 20 Most Useful Polls

Polling is a great way to both engage the audience and provide yourself with insightful analytics post-event. With Glisser, usability is key and it’s easy to add a range of polls into your presentation, below we have listed our top 20 most useful and commonly used polls to make your event planning even easier.

Free Text polls allow the audience to write a personalised response to a question. This is most commonly used to provide more detailed feedback at the end of a session or an event.
