Once you select Launch Poll, users will be prompted to answer the polling questions. You will be given notifications when attendees answer and what they answer live during the poll. During the Webinar, all questions under a single poll will be asked at once.

NOTE: You will also have the ability to edit the poll at this point. You can create additional polls to ask questions at any time during the Webinar. However, we highly recommend to add your polls before the webinar as you might encounter some difficulties when adding a poll while the webinar is ongoing. Please refer to RingCentral Webinar Known Usability Issues for additional details.

Click End poll to end the poll.
