Can I launch a meeting poll through API?

I plan on integrating a custom api with zoom api using an martketplace oauth app, and the other api uses a sort of “hey are you paying attention prompt”. I’d like to use polling to accomplish this in a Zoom meeting but the scheduling of prompts is relative to the start of the meeting and should not require host interaction. So, can I launch a meeting poll through the Zoom API?

Hi @greedylumpsoftware, unfortunately this is not possible. The Zoom API does not handle these types of in-meeting controls. A meeting host can have a poll created prior to a meeting, but the in-meeting poll would need to be launched by the host.
