The Multichoice poll can be configured to allow for two slightly different types of polls.
1. To set up a basic multichoice poll with one choice:
In the Polls section select the '+ Create new poll' button.
Enter the 'Title' of your poll. That is your question you want to ask.
Select 'Multichoice' as the poll type.
Enter the 'Choices' you would like your participants to choose from.
This poll question will allow participants to only choose one of your specified choices.
2. To set up a basic multichoice poll with more than one choice:
Use this type of polling where you would like to give your participants the option to select more than one choice.
Follow step 1-5 above. Then take note of the 'Allowed Selections' box to the right.
As a default, this is set to 1 when you add a new poll, meaning your participants can only select one choice.
You can increase this if you want to allow participants to select more than choice. You can limit people (e.g. pick three), or set it the same as the number of choices (e.g. for a 'select all that apply' type of poll).
