Socio's Polling feature makes hosting your live stream in the Socio Platform that much simpler. There's no need to pay for an outside tool, and everything you need to keep your attendees engaged with your sessions is manageable from one central place.

Socio's Polling functionality becomes available after you publish your event, once you have access to the Manage tools. You can enable Polling individually for certain sessions or live streams, or import several at a time, or have a dedicated Polling feature. This article covers each component and functionality of Polling.

Follow the steps below to access Q&A and Polling:
