Adding polls to your event is a great way to get inside the minds of your attendees. Event polls allows you to ask your attendee's opinion and get live feedback on hot topics. It's also a good way to get your attendees engaged at your event.

To create a poll, first you need to create a session. Once you've created your session access your virtual event hub to create a poll. Click here to learn more on how to create a session.
