How to I stop the audience from changing their answer on a multiple choice poll. At the moment participants can submit an answer but the poll still remains. Therefore, they can submit another answer which overrides their original selection. I only want people to select one option and not be able to change their answer! 



Unfortunately, it’s not possible to disable “edit response” in a poll. 

There is a workaround though! You can keep the results hidden when you activate your poll, allow your participants a little time to submit their answers, then lock the voting so that they can’t change their vote (this will prevent them from editing the response once it’s locked)  and just show the results while the voting is locked.

Please, let me know if this workaround works for you :)

My polls are out of order in the presenter mode even though they are correctly ordered in the admin dashboard. How do I fix this ?
