Polls

GUIDANCE FOR VENDOR ADMINS

Usage
Polls can be used in any situation where you need to collect the views or opinions of your Customers, Members, Officials, etc, e.g.

  • Data Gathering
  • Votes
  • Opinion Polls
  • etc

You can determine when creating the Poll whether or not you want to make the results publicly available. You can choose to keep them confidential, make them available only to those voting, or allow everyone to view them.

Editing
Log into your Admin Portal and go to Website --> Pages. This page will appear in the list of Pages in the 'Management' section and can be edited by clicking the link on the Name field. You can also clone it for reuse by clicking the cog icon at the top of the page.

We have added a sample Poll and suggest adding any further named Polls under 'Polls' (this page) as required; this will mean that new Polls are sensibly organised in the Site Menu at the top of the page. You can use the 'Parent Page' field to create and organise more complex hierarchies in your site if you wish.

We have added some generic advisory text for customers below; please edit or replace this as you see fit.

Adding Polls
The easiest way to add a Poll is to click the '+' on the Pages screen and select Add Poll from the list. You can specify Header & Footer text, a submission response, how you would like the results to be viewed (if at all) and a range of further options, including the structure and content of the Poll.

DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THE LINE BELOW AND EVERYTHING ABOVE IT BEFORE GOING LIVE TO YOUR MEMBERS

Forms

We may use Polls from time to time to canvass your views on matters of importance to us.

The list of currently active Polls is accessible from the main site menu at the top of the page. If you cannot see any Polls listed under the 'Polls' menu option, there are no active Polls at this time.

Depending on the nature and purpose of the Poll, you may or may not be able to review the current results once you have submitted your response.
