Is there a viable workaround?
I want to use the Poll function for an election of a committee, and I as the host want to be able to vote.
I also have a co-host for task-sharing and resilience.
The only thing I can think is to:
a) demote the co-host to allow them to vote,
b) then re-instate the co-host & elevate them to host, and have them demote me to participant.
c) then I can vote.
d) have the new host (ex co-host) elevate me to co-host
e) then have them elevate me back to host.
Phew - that's time-consuming and messy.
Alternatively is there any alternative Zoom feature for this purpose?
The problem is that someone has to have authority to run the poll, and the Zoom software is currently designed to only allow control or participate. Your workaround would be to demote co-hosts to Panelists so they could participate. It’s unlikely the Host will ever be able to psychosis participate and control the poll.
