How do I create or edit a poll?

Polls are a great way to get a sense of the group's opinion. Groups use polls to determine the best date for the next meeting, vote on ideas for a fundraiser or event, or guage opinion on popular topics, like election issues. Only group administrators can create and edit polls.

 

To create a poll:

  • Go to [group name] > Utilities  > Polls
  • Click "Create a New Poll."
  • Enter the question and the list of options from which members can choose (one per line).
  • Decide if you want the poll to close and when. Closing a poll will close the poll to new responses. However, the orignal question and previous results will be preserved and will be visible to group members from the polls page.
  • Click "Create."


 

Group leaders can edit poll at any time, as long as the poll is open. However, editing choices will change the results. For example, if members have already responded to the poll and a group leader changes an existing response, previous results will be erased for the changed items.

 

To edit a poll:

  • Go to [group name] > Utilities > Polls
  • Click on a poll title to view more options, then click “Edit” to make your changes.
  • Click "Save" when you're finished.
