@Suzanne – I’d recommend calling 919-962-HELP or creating a help ticket at http://help.unc.edu as they will probably be able to walk you through the technical aspects of the issue and make sure everything is set up correctly on your device. Additionally, this is the documentation from the Poll Everywhere blog found here (https://blog.polleverywhere.com/how-to-embed-live-polls-in-powerpoint-windows-edition/):

Using Windows?

Start by downloading the integration for your Windows computer. You’ll find a new tab in your PowerPoint ribbon called ”Poll Everywhere.” Once you sign in to your Poll Everywhere account, you’ll be able to view, create, edit, and insert activities directly into your slide deck.

On a Mac?

Download the Poll Everywhere for Mac app and follow the installer directions. Once it’s launched, sign in to your Poll Everywhere account. The app will stay open in its own window beside PowerPoint. While the app is running, you’ll see the Poll Everywhere icon in your dock.

For more detailed instructions and troubleshooting help, visit our comprehensive Support center.

When you’re ready to embed your activities, they’ll load directly into your slideshow after the slide you currently have selected. From there, you can treat them just as you would a typical slide—rearrange their order by dragging and dropping their thumbnails.

Make sure not to modify any elements of the Poll Everywhere slide, including the objects on the slide itself and any details in the presenter notes section.
