How do I automatically create a poll using a presentation in a conference as a presenter?

When used in a presentation, polls can be created automatically. If a presentation slide includes poll questions, Conferences will read the slide and automatically include the choices in the poll that match the presentation:

  • Slides with yes or no generate a Yes/No poll
  • Slides with true or false generate a True/False poll
  • Slides with answers A–F generate a letter poll with the same number of options (shown as A–F)
  • Slides with bullet points cannot be detected and have to be created manually

 

The poll will begin as soon as you click the poll type button.
