MC246707 – Updated April 16, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
This new feature introduces Correct Answer choices to Polls within Teams meetings and will roll out across Microsoft Teams Desktop, Mobile and Web. The new update will make poll creation fluid, as frictionless as possible and gives presenters control of their meeting experience.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 80519.
When this will happen
Rollout will begin in early May (previously mid-April) and complete by end of May (previously late April).
How this will affect your organization
Presenters will be able to mark a correct answer for their multiple-choice polls in Teams meetings when performing a quick knowledge check or engaging colleagues during a training session and the correct answer choice will be shown after voting in the Results card.
This feature exists for Teams Meeting polls and will pop up as a window on the screen.
- Correct answer choices can be selected on multiple choice questions only.
- Correct answer can be a single option, or multiple if “multiple answers” is enabled.
Choosing multiple choice poll from three available options
Creating question and possible multiple choice answers + setting which is correct answer choice
After selecting answer, correct answer and poll results are shown
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.Blog
