How to Add a Poll to a Stream Video

You are at the right place if your organization has educational/informative videos for your users to watch and you want to do polls/tests or collect feedback during videos. It is possible to insert polls that you created in Forms to certain minutes of your videos on Stream. This way while watching the videos people will come across a form and keep watching from where they left after answering. Now let’s take a look at how it is done. 

1. Upload a video on Stream and click on the “Add New” option under “Interactivity”. 

In this step stop the video at the minute you want your poll to appear and continue with the “Add New” option.
