Polls- Can I make them mandatory to be answered before moving from Waiting Room to the Meeting?


I have created polls and used them quite a bit.  However, sometimes I don't get 100% of the participants to respond.  They may "Close" the poll instead of answering.  Is there a way to make the poll mandatory to be answered?  Since I use the Waiting Room, could I make the poll required to be answered prior to moving people from the waiting room into the meeting?

Unfortunately, polls can only be used during the live meeting, not while in the waiting room. Additionally, you can require poll questions to be answered before they submit their answers, but there is no current way to force them to participate in the poll overall.
