Crowdpurr live audience Polls are a great way to ask your audience their opinion on a topic or get live crowd feedback instantly in real-time! Your crowd simply uses their mobile device to cast their vote on a variety of different poll and question types. You can use Crowdpurr Polls for surveys, live Q&A's, exit-polling, or instantaneous crowd response.
Crowdpurr Polls allow you to ask your audience opinion-based questions like:
- Who is your favorite President of the United States?
- How would you rate the conference keynote speaker?
- How can we improve our company?
- Which benefits are most important to you as an employee?
- Who do you nominate for employee of the year?
- What questions do you have for our guest speaker this evening?
Unlike a Trivia Game, there is no right or wrong answer in a poll - only your crowd's opinion-based feedback.
Poll Types & Question Types
There are several different types of Polls you can create on the Create Experiences page. These Poll types are simply "shortcuts" to creating a Poll with a certain type of question.

Your Poll can also contain different Question Types. Question Types are:
This is where your crowd picks from several answer choices that you write along with your question. An example is:
- Which employee benefit is most important to you?
- A. Paid Time Off
- B. More Insurance Options
- C. Higher Pay Raises
- D. Newer Offices & Equipment
Text Answer Questions
This is an open-ended question that requires your crowd to write their own answer using their mobile device's keyboard. An example could be:
- Who do you nominate for Employee of the Year?
Your crowd would then type in their own answer. Answers could be quite varied because the crowd makes up their own. Answers that are the same are automatically grouped together.
Numerical Answer Questions
This is similar to Text Answer questions; however, this question only accepts a number, and the keyboard shown to your crowd is a numerical keyboard versus a full-text keyboard. An example is:
- How many years have you been an employee?
Like or Dislike Questions
This type of question quickly sets up a Like or Dislike Poll that is simply a Multiple Choice question with two answer options - Like or Dislike. An example is:
- We are considering an employee stock option?
The crowd would then vote if they Like or Dislike the question by easily clicking one of the special buttons specifically for this question type on their mobile device. This is a great way to get the overall feel from your crowd on a variety of topics your present to them as questions.
Yes or No Questions
This Question Type quickly sets up a Yes or No Poll that is simply a Multiple Choice question with two answer options - Yes or No. An example is:
- Are you satisfied with your company pay-raise for 2023?
The crowd would then easily cast a Yes or No vote by clicking one of the special buttons specifically for this Question Type on their mobile device. This is a great way to vote on topics for your organization or event.
Drag & Drop Order
The Drag & Drop Order question type requires your participants to drag the answer options into the correct order to answer the question correctly. When the Show Live Answer Results display is enabled, Crowdpurr will animate the answers into the top-voted order.

Presenting Live Poll Results To Your Crowd
During the Poll, you can show the results from your crowd in real time. The idea of a Poll is to gather information and/or feedback from your crowd. You can then visualize the crowd responses in the Presentation View in a live bar chart. The Presentation View opens up in a separate desktop web browser tab. It can be put in Full-Screen mode and displayed on your Extended Desktop when your computer is connected to any external projectors or HDTV screens - similar to a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation. For more information, please have a look at the following page - Connecting Crowdpurr to a Projector or HDTV
You can also choose not to show live Poll results from your crowd. Alternatively, you can wait and show them at the end of each question. Or at the end of your entire Poll in a "review" session. The choice is yours.
Exporting Poll Results
When your Poll is complete, every vote from every participant can be exported as a CSV file spreadsheet for import into Excel or Google Sheets. By default, Polls will run anonymously, meaning no identity or lead capture information is collected by the Poll. However, you can choose to collect participant lead capture data like First Name, Last Name, Email, Age, Phone Number, and many others. If you've upgraded to any of our Premium Plans, this data can be exported for lead capture from your audience. Lead capture data is also tied to answer results so you can see who voted for which answers! To learn more check out Exporting Poll Results and Data to a Spreadsheet.
