To learn more on how to create and manage polls, please see this guide

Disabling the event-wide Polls

To turn off the event Polls, click the three dots ••• at the top right corner of the page and toggle the event Poll button on or off. 

With this, the event-wide Polls will be disabled but the Polls in the segments of the event, such as Sessions, Stage and Expo will remain enabled. 

When the Polls area is disabled attendees will see the "polls are disabled - the organizer has disabled the polls" notice.

If you'd like to remove the Polls tab for the event, go to the Event dashboard > Venue > Venue controls page. Uncheck the Event box under the Polls section and hit Save.  

This will remove the polls tab on the Reception area but will not affect the Sessions, Booths and Stage(s).

Disabling the Polls area for the event segments - Stage, Sessions and Expo 

Enter the specific Session, Expo Booth or Stage you'd like to disable the Polls for, click the three dots ••• at the top right corner of the page and toggle the Polls button on or off.  If you disabled the Polls in any Session, the Polls area will also be disabled in all Sessions across the events. The same goes for the Stage and Expo. 

If you'd like to remove the Polls tab for the whole segment, follow the instructions above by going to the Event Dashboard > Venue > Venue Controls and disabling Polls in a specific event area.

Note: Removing the Polls tab in a live event would require Attendees to hard refresh to see the changes within the event.
