The text poll or open-ended questions allows participants to enter a text-based response of up to 2,000 characters. By asking an open-ended question, you are giving your participants the opportunity to answer whatever they like, without limiting or influencing them with predefined answers. Participants can also use emojis in their text responses. Note that participants are only allowed to submit one text response per poll.
To set up a text poll:
In the Polls section select the '+ Create new' button.
Select 'Text' as the poll type.
Enter the 'Question title' or question of your poll.
If you prefer, add an image to the poll question by clicking on the picture icon. Either upload a preferred image from your computer or use the built-in library of licensed images. (If you have a Free account, you will not have access to this feature.)
When pushing the results of a text question the present view as well as the participants devices will display the participant responses as a list.
Our new feature allows one to set up the correct answer for text polling as well.
