Announcing Forms polls in Microsoft Teams meetings

Announcing Forms polls in Microsoft Teams meetings

Microsoft will be adding the ability for any presenter to initiate a poll using Microsoft Forms while being in a Teams meeting.


Before the meeting starts, the presenter will be able to create draft polls ready to launch in the meeting. During the meeting, the presenter can create and launch polls that any attendee can view and answer. All attendees will have the ability to see the results in real time and attendees can respond to the poll after the meeting has finished, unless the poll has been closed by the presenter.


Once the meeting has finished, presenters can evaluate responses in the meeting tab. This will bring all the normal functionality of Microsoft Forms such as exporting as an Excel workbook or you can review the poll in the Microsoft Forms web app.

You will need to make sure any users that require the functionality of creating or launching a poll has the presenter role for that meeting. This can be set in the meeting options prior to the meeting or you can change an attendee to a presenter during the meeting.

Microsoft Teams admins have the option to turn of meeting polls in the Teams admin center.

Roll out of this new feature will commence mid-November through to early December. Check the Microsoft Roadmap ID 68837 for more updates.
