AI-Based Poll Suggestions Coming to Microsoft Teams

What is coming soon?


When creating a poll using Microsoft Forms in their Teams meeting, organisers can soon implement AI-based suggestions. Microsoft Forms intelligence will suggest poll options for organisers to choose from, based on their meeting context and purpose. Forms can also suggest multiple-choice answer options if it suits your chosen poll question. Polls in Teams meetings has been a built-in feature since 2020 and it is now optimised for mobile users as well as guest users.



What are the benefits?


AI-based suggestions in polls will provide a more efficient experience for organisers by offering relevant options with a few clicks. This feature update will reduce the time spent creating polls, so the meeting runs smoothly. More AI-based features coming soon include open-text polls, historical poll suggestions, correct answer choice feature and option suggestions as well as data reporting for polls after a Microsoft Teams meeting has ended.
