Polls with unlimitted participants
How many participants can vote online with PollUnit?
After some updates in our architecture we were able to speed up PollUnit. This not only has the advantage that your online polls now load even faster, but also allows us to manage a much larger number of participants per online poll.
Voting without a participant limit is a bit fuzzy, but surveys with up to 20,000 participants can now be created in our enterprise accounts. If that's not enough for you, contact email@example.com and we'll allow you to vote with almost unlimited participants.

Polls about time periods
Did you know? With PollUnit you can create polls about time periods.
Your polls will also take into account the local time zone of your participants. This makes it easy to arrange appointments across national borders.
You can also create surveys over a period of time - between two hours, whether on the same day or over several days.

Interactive votings for your live presentation
PollUnit is more than just an online voting system. PollUnit is your system for interactive live votings.
Use our surveys during your presentation and let your audience or class participate interactively. All changes are immediately displayed to all users. Your audience can vote during your presentation and you can evaluate the results together. So PollUnit becomes your real-time element on stage!
All you need for your live voting is a screen or beamer and participants with mobile phones or another internet-enabled device. Your audience can easily join in without logging in.
Then all you have to do is ask a question, collect the answers or ratings and PollUnit will show you the result.
PollUnit replaces the ballot paper and offers all participants not only simple answers such as yes and no, but also extended voting types such as star ratings, dot-votings or systemic consensus.
To display the results on the beamer, our premium users can switch to full-screen mode in the evaluation view.

Integrate surveys and polls on your own website
Today we released our new feature »Embed PollUnit«. Now our premium members can integrate their surveys on their own website.
With an embedded poll, every visitor to your website can participate directly and easily in your PollUnit.
Whether you want to embed your poll or votings in Wordpress, Joomla, Tumblr, Drupal or other web technologies: embedding PollUnits is possible without advanced programming skills. By clicking on »Embedding« in the context menu of your PollUnit a short manual and a code snippet appears. If the code snippet has been inserted on your website, your visitors have the possibility to vote directly on your website.
You can configure your polls as usual, allow participants to vote without registration and create their own themes to adapt the poll to the design of your website.
If the website is optimized for mobile devices and the PollUnit is embedded correctly, PollUnit automatically adapts to the resolution of mobile phones and tablets.

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.
