Say you need to get everyone’s input on something to make a group decision, gather the best ideas, get their burning questions, or find the most popular ice cream flavor.
What would be the simplest way to do that? A Poll!
In Butter, there's no need to switch to running these polls in a different app — just prep it ahead in your Room and go!
Preparing a Poll
You can prep the Poll from the Room Setup to save yourself the hassle of creating a poll on the fly. You have a choice between these types of polls:
- Multiple Choice Your participants can only choose from the answers you give them. You can choose to keep it open or have a quiz-style format — perfect when there's a right or wrong answer in the mix!
- Open Ended Your participants can type in their own answer to your question and upvote on the answers they like the best.
Protip: Want your participants to answer honestly to really sensitive questions during your workshop? Keep the participants' answer anonymous by configuring it in the poll settings!
Starting a Poll
When you're ready to start the poll, simply open the Poll menu on your right and click "Start Poll".
Once the poll ends, the results will be free for everyone to see.
Protip: Get participants energised even more when you're showing the answers to open-ended questions by getting participants to upvote on the responses they like the most (double-tap is the key!) and highlight the favorite responses to bring it to everyone's attention.
Creating a new Poll on the fly
You easily create and edit your polls while you're in the session. Just open the Poll menu on your right, and you're good to go.
Exporting the Poll results
Need to analyse the poll results at the end of a session? At the end of the workshop or meeting, you can view the poll results and export them as a CSV file either in the Room or in the Butter dashboard!
