Redesign of our poll management
Life becomes a little easier for all poll administrators. We have simplified the management of your PollUnits, themes, groups and logos and introduced a context menu.
You open the new context menu with a click on the three points and get an overview of all possible functions.
In addition, your polls are now grouped by their status (Active, Completed).

Online poll with randomly-ordered options
In polls with many options, it is possible that options at the beginning and end of a list get higher attention. Thus, options in the middle of a vote have worse chances than the outside ones. This effect is called »Order Bias«, »Position Bias« or »Sequential Bias«.
To avoid order bias you can randomize the order of the options.
With PollUnit you can automatically shuffle your poll options for each user. This feature works with all our poll types, including image voting.

Groups for your online voting
Sending invitations to your online polls is now even easier.
With a premium account you can create and manage groups or teams. You can then simply invite them to your polls.
For example, you can create groups such as »Friends«, »Family« or »Colleagues« and speed up the creation of your polls. You can create an unlimited number of receiver lists and add them to your PollUnits. Ideal for recurring polls and teamwork!
The users without login as well as the free accounts can of course still create invitations to their online votes by manual entry of recipients.

Increased traceability in your group decisions
In order to better understand what is happening in your PollUnit, we have expanded our messaging system. All actions in your PollUnit are now stored in an Activity Log.
This is done to ensure a fair and transparent decision in the team during the vote. If you delete your PollUnit, all activities will be deleted.
We can inform you directly at PollUnit about new votes and comments. The administrators of PollUnits can now also delete abusive comments and duplicate or incorrect participation of other users, without doing so secretly.
You will find the Activity Log in the evaluation of your group decision.

More control over your group decisions
Many of our users wanted more control over the participants, content and votes in their PollUnit's. Therefore, we are happy to introduce you to our new admin functions.
First of all, please note: Our goal is to enable you a fair and transparent voting process. It should not be possible to cheat and secretly change content or votes. Therefore, all administrative interventions are saved in an Activity Log. This is visible to all participants.
As an admin of a group decision, you can now delete comments from participants. So you can remove inappropriate comments and abusive content from your PollUnit. That a comment was deleted is recorded in the Activity Log.
In addition, you can now delete participants and their votes as the admin of a poll. This is also recorded in the activity log. This feature allows you to remove duplicate and unauthorized participations transparently.
If you have any further ideas or requests, just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
