How to … Create a Poll on TST
If you're interested in creating a poll on TheSandTrap.com, here's how to do it.
Create a topic as you normally do. If you know what you have to say, fill in the content area of the topic as well - the first "post" in the topic. If not, fill it in after you create your poll. Note that the title you set here is the Topic title.
Click the "Poll" tab toward the top of the page.
Name your poll or questionnaire. This can be a different name than the topic title.
Set the options for your poll. These include:
- Whether the names of the members who vote are public (this is encouraged for polls that don't ask for personal information).
- The questions you'd like to ask.
- The answers to the questions you'd like to ask. If you want people to be able to select multiple answers, choose the "Multiple Choice Question?" option.
- Go back to the "Content" tab and clarify any poll questions or answers, and/or explain why you voted the way you did.
