You asked. Zoom listened! Now introducing Zoom Polls Library- a centralized location where you can manage your Zoom polls and quizzes.


Previously, polls for Personal Meetings (PMI) and non-PMI meetings were managed separately. Now, you can choose which polls and quizzes to share across your meetings. When a poll is marked as available to all meetings, it will appear in the list of polls that can be launched in a meeting. This new central repository will not replace the existing "Personal Meeting (PMI) polls"; polls created here will only appear in PMI meetings.

Use Cases

The Zoom Polls library is perfect for instructors. Your polls will all live in a central library that can be accessed from any meeting on your account. If you teach a course with multiple class sessions, this will make it easier to reuse polls across different classes. If you have a poll or quiz meant for only one group, you can disable the share feature.


To get started with Zoom Polls Library, you will need Zoom version 5.10.3 or later.

Note: You can only enable up to 10 polls for your meetings.

Note for users of screen readers: letters in parentheses in the instructions below refer to corresponding areas on example images. If you have any questions about these instructions, contact eLearning for assistance.

  3. Click the Polls/Quizzes tab (B).
