As I mentioned earlier, it's wise for you to create and save your poll questions in advance so that you can take the pressure off the few moments that you have prior to the start of your WebEx session. However, logging in and creating a session room just for the purpose of creating poll questions can be time consuming and can create extra steps in the process of creating a poll. There is a little feature called the WebEx Poll Questionnaire Editor and it's a standalone software tool that you can download from your WebEx interface and have resident on your local machine to access any time.
To use it, go to your WebEx Training Center window, click the arrow to the left of Support to expand the menu, and then click the Downloads link. This Downloads screen gives you access to many different downloadable tools that you might want to use, including the WebEx Poll Questionnaire Editor. I'll click on the link for Download Now and when prompted, click Run. A dialog box will pop up, showing the InstallShield Wizard. Click on Next, click accept the terms of the license agreement and click Next.
Double check that Complete is selected and click Next. Determine where you'd like to install this and click OK. Determine where you'd like to install the software, you can click Change to reset the location and click OK. Then click Next and finally, click Install. At this point, just stand by and wait until the Poll Questionnaire Editor is installed. Finally, you'll click on Finish.
Next time you go to your Windows menu, you'll see the WebEx Poll Questionnaire Editor as one of the items listed in your menu. When I click on the Poll Questionnaire Editor, the program comes up and you can see that it looks exactly like the Poll panel that you normally see on the right side of your screen in WebEx. You still have the Open button so that you can open polls that have already been created. And just like we saw earlier, you can click on the New button to add in a new poll question and click the Add button to add your answers.
You can also change your polling options by clicking the Options button in the lower right corner. The Poll Questionnaire Editor allows you to create poll questions and save them with an ATP extension before you log in to a WebEx session.
