Zoom: Create a Poll or Quiz


Leaders may add a poll to an existing Zoom session via the UT Zoom page or while in a Zoom meeting. Once polls and quizzes are created, they will be saved to the Polling Library in the Zoom Cloud. Once in the library, a poll may be available for display in all meetings scheduled by the leader. Meeting leaders can have up to 50 polls saved in their library. 

  • A LiveOnline@UT (Zoom) meeting may have up to 25 polls per meeting (max), and each poll may have up to 10 questions. 

A leader of a Zoom meeting may display the same polling questions multiple times during the meeting. After ending the poll, the leader may choose to close the Polls window and access the Polls icon on the meeting toolbar at another time during the meeting. Or, the leader may select the Clear Results icon on the Polls window.  The meeting leader may then select the option to Re-launch Polling from the Polls window.

For additional information on polls, please visit the Zoom article Polling for Meetings
