Creating a poll

Hello,

 

Is there a way to create a poll on a community page? I just did a search on the forum and the results are from several years ago so I wanted to check if this has been updated since?

 

Thanks,

Amy

Re: Creating a poll

Hi @amycatling,

 

Basic polls are available built in to Lithium. You  can surface these polls across the whole community or only selected areas. Keep in mind that you might need to add the poll widget into your page layout if you have removed it from the OOTB page layout.

Re: Creating a poll

Thanks @ClaudiusH. Although I can create a poll I don't have a 'studio' option to put one on a community page.

 

Do you have any suggestions on how to get this?

Re: Creating a poll

The "Studio" option is only available on your community staging instance. You would need to make the changes there, verify it's working correctly and then push to your production instance. See this workflow visualized and explained in the article "The Studio Publish workflow"

Re: Creating a poll

This was helpful. What if I wanted to create a Poll and add it on the main page of the community? Can we do that?  I want the user to see it on the main page when they log in instead of going into a discussion board.

Re: Creating a poll

@C_Fun : Yes you can able to place poll any where in the Community. As you are planning to have it on the community/Home Page.

 

Go to Studio-->In the Community Page Quilt--> Drag and Drop Poll widget (located on the Left Side list)--> Place it on the required position--> Click Save.

 

So polls are visible on the Home Page.

 

Hope this Document will give you clear flow
