Create a poll

To create a poll:

  2. Click on "Create poll".
  3. Fill in the fields in the new window (fields marked with an asterisk are required):
    1. Title. Poll title.
    2. Question. Question posed to the user.
    3. Options. Answer options. Since surveys must have at least two options, two associated fields appear under "Options"("Option 1" and "Option 2"); these options can not be removed. You can add as many answer options as you wish by clicking "Add option", you can also delete them by clicking "Delete".
    4. StatusChoose "ON" to publish the poll. When you do it, "Initial visible date" and "End visible date" will be enabled so you can set the period of visibility for your announcement. If you do not want the poll to be visible, select "OFF".

4. Press "Create".
