📚 [Community Handbook p. 11] Creating a Poll

Hey Makers :wave:

We’ve already covered a good chunk of the community’s features & functionality in the previous Community Handbook posts. To refresh your memory, we’ve learned how to:

:person_red_hair: set up a community profile
:mag_right: look up info in the community
:speech_balloon: start a conversation
:arrow_right_hook: reply and react
:white_check_mark: mark as solved
:mailbox_with_mail: send DMs
:triangular_flag_on_post: flag posts
:calling: set notifications
:bookmark: bookmark posts
:face_in_clouds: hide or blur parts of your posts

Today, we’ll take a quick look at creating polls in your post in order to quickly get the community’s opinion.

:one: Click the cogwheel symbol in the text editor and choose the Build Poll option.

:two: A window pops up that helps you build the poll:

  • choose if you want to build a single-choice poll or a multiple-choice poll
  • add the options you want the users to be choosing from
  • define the minimum and maximum number of options a user can mark
  • hit ‘Insert Poll’

:three: Clearly phrase the question that goes with the poll in your post and wait for the votes to start coming in.

:four: Every user can vote only once and the author of the poll can close (and reopen) the poll anytime they like. The results of the poll are displayed like this:

Try it out:

Would you rather

  • accidentally burn all your operations
  • only be able to run your scenarios with the ‘Run Once’ button
  • perform manually everything you’ve once automated
