    As you can see, above the results there is an instruction for participants both for “text to vote” and “web voting” versions.

    These are the few simple steps that this audience polling system requires to create and integrate a poll in powerpoint.

    Voting process

    As you integrated the poll in powerpoint, it’s time for your audience to vote and see the results updated in real time.

    When creating a poll, you can enable both sms and web voting, in order for your audience to be able to text to vote or participate in the polling process through web.

    In case of text voting your audience should send their response to the number attached to your account: They should send either an option itself (for example “Yes” or “No”) or the number of the option, such as “1” or “2”.

    If your audience vote through web, they should go to swiftpolling.com and enter the event code, which is unique for each account. After they will see the poll with its options and will vote for their preferred one.

    Your audience will see the results of the voting process updating in real time on the slide.

    Poll and presentation controls

    What is important you can control such poll and presentation features directly from the slide as:

  • Selecting among bar, column and pie charts.
  • Determining color theme.
  • Displaying voting instructions in full screen (poll results will be hidden.)
  • Switching dark mode depending on the lighting conditions of the room.
  • Controlling and navigating the poll – start / stop your poll, switch to other questions with “Next” and “Previous” buttons.
  • Editing poll – clicking on this button will take you the the editing screen of your Swift account.
  • Creating new poll – like the previous one, it takes to the poll creation screen
  • Resetting poll results – After resetting you will not be able to recover results anymore.
    Many of the mentioned presentation controls you can find hence entering your account from the slide and clicking on the button “configure”.


    More useful tools you can find clicking on the sidebar located at the bottom left corner of the presentation page.

    There are settings also for open ended and word cloud questions types, as Swift Polling enables to create such type of questions too.
