This article covers how to create, vote on, edit, & delete polls.

  • Polls can be created with a single answer or multiple answers.

  • Scheduling a poll triggers a notification email to go out to all who are assigned to vote in the poll.


Create a Poll

Members with meeting Collaborator or Group Owner / Admin permissions can:

  • Create polls from the main Polls page (via the left side panel)

  • Create polls within meetings or group pages they are a part of

Keep Votes Anonymous

The votes will be kept entirely anonymous and the poll owner will not be able to see who has voted

Notify (Poll Owner or Everyone) when all responses received

A notification will be sent out to the poll owner or the group voting on the poll once everyone has voted

Step 5: Select the individuals you want to participate in the poll:

  1. To assign a poll to a group (or two), check the checkbox next to the group's name. You will only be able to select groups that you are a member of.

  3. You can also select members individually by using the Assign Individuals dropdown
