The most common question type is Multiple Choice, in which participants can choose between several options that you provide. You probably already know much about this type of question, since it has been widely used for surveys.

Multiple Choice is suitable when you already know what options you want the participants to vote on, i.e. you want your audience to choose only from a few pre-defined options.

Additional functionality

There are some other options for customizing your Multiple Choice question.

Change result layout

Choose to show your results as Bar Chart, Donut Chart, Pie Chart, and Dots.

Extra settings

  • "Show correct answer(s)" can be selected to indicate that some of the answers are correct (and others not!). When presenting, you can show which options that you have marked as correct.
  • Show the results in percentage or in exact number of votes. You can also switch between percentage and numbers by clicking on the charts in the presentation view.
  • Allow the audience to vote on more than one option, and then decide the maximum number of options. This is commonly known as checkboxes in surveys.


If you have several Multiple Choice or Image Choice questions in your presentation, you can segment the votes according to the results from another question. Note that you cannot use segmentation with Donut or Pie Chart.
