MeetingPulse Audience engagement solutions
Switch to MeetingPulse as the Sun Sets on Microsoft Pulse
By Aaron Lifshin on

Several years ago, Microsoft introduced a product very similar to the MeetingPulse audience response software. Now, Microsoft Pulse is officially shutting down. We kindly invite any Microsoft Pulse users to shift to MeetingPulse to meet their interactive meeting needs during this time of transition. When you go to the Microsoft Pulse site, you now see the following notice:

We hope you have enjoyed using Microsoft Pulse. We are writing to let you know that Microsoft will be discontinuing Pulse as a free public service on June 30, 2017.

If you have Pulses with results you would like to preserve, you can use the producer tool to download the results in csv or Excel formats. After June 30, 2017, the service will be shut down and no results will be retrievable.

Thanks again for your interest in our product; we have greatly enjoyed building it and hope you found it useful.

Like MeetingPulse, Microsoft Pulse provided polling, pulse, and live voting features. Also like MeetingPulse, Microsoft’s product was effective in the interactive meeting realms of broadcast, meetings, education, events, and research.

During it’s active period a couple of years ago, Microsoft Pulse’s most notable applications included the following: The 2015 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, 2015 CNN Republican Primary Debates, Britian’s 2015 Sky News Labour Leadership Debates, MSNBC’s Daily Implementation, and CBS News: Civil Rights 50 Years Later.

At MeetingPulse, we offer very similar audience response software features and more – and we aren’t going anywhere any time soon. In order to join us in order to ease your transition, whether via free trial or membership, visit the MeetingPulse site and click on the “Get Started” shown below.
