Lync Tool Belt #1: Creating a Poll

This is a feature of Lync that I think is overlooked frequently and it is actually pretty cool.  Have you ever been on a conference call with several attendees trying to figure eout when to meet next?  The polling tool would be a fantastic way to do this.  These are the steps that you take to create a poll.

  1. Click Share
  2. Click New Poll
  3. Type in the Poll Name
  4. Type in the Poll Question
  5. Type in Possible Responses
  6. Click ok

Once the poll is open you then have the option to open the poll to the conference attendees, close the poll, show results to everyone in the conference, edit the poll choices, clear responses and finally save the poll for future use.  This feature allows for real time polling, which makes collaboration seamless.  Below is a screen shot for an example.
