Hi All,

 

We are trying to include a live poll in a Teams meeting which is more like a virtual training session and it is an important part of the training. I noticed that the Forms app is not available in meetings and we do not have Polly app available to us.

Is there a way to include polls and whiteboard in a meeting?

AFAIK these are not yet supported in meetings! In teams live events you can have QnA with Yammer integration!

That's a bummer :(

 

We just started a Teams Only pilot and I am sure this issue will pop up soon as its a major capability miss for Learning & Development folks.

Whiteboard support is coming and being worked on. Also sometime back at SPC they were talking about putting bot support into chat, which would and should open up poll bots etc. in meetings since those are just basically group chats.

@adam deltingertype "@forms" in a chat and the poll will jump up.

Hi @Tanya Arora 

 

You can use the Forms bot but (and unfortunately I keep using "but" a lot when it comes to Teams), you need to go back to the actual channel conversation, not the chat side bar in the meeting to see and answer the poll.

Thanks @David Gorman !

That is why we have been using Channel meetings so that we can use Forms bot :)

@Mark Hosang adding forms will work if the meeting is happening within channels :smile: coz u can add the forms app from store as a tab or bot....what if the meeting is scheduled as a teams meeting with no users from domain? i think forms part will not work...! :sad:
