Tips for successful online scheduling with PollUnit
With PollUnit, you can quickly and easily find appointments online, without registration. That your scheduling work as smoothly as possible, we have some tips for you!
So what should you pay attention to if you want to find dates?
Do not overload your participants with too many possible dates. Ask your users to keep the suggested dates free. You should therefore exclude unnecessary appointments in advance and execute the voting as fast as possible.
Set your participants a deadline. With an automatic expiration date in your PollUnit, invited attendees will be reminded once again if they have not already decided or voted.
After expiry of your PollUnit, you can visit your admin link and close it by clicking the "Close PollUnit". All registered users will be notified of the results. You can add an individual message here. Please note that all anonymous users, ie participants without account, can not be notified by us. If possible, share the results with a different route.
Avoid multiple vote sessions. If a suitable appointment has not been found, you can add new dates. This will automatically inform your registered participants. This function should not be exaggerated.
To prioritize dates, you can choose between different valuation types.

New: Online voting with subtitle and link
Repeatedly we were asked if it is possible to add an additional text field or link to the individual options of a PollUnit. A very good idea, but we did not want to complicate the creation of polls.
So we released 3 new features: subtitles, links and our PollUnit helper.
We now start the creation of a PollUnit with a simple question, which helps You to quickly and easily find the basic settings and schema of your PollUnit. All settings like star rating, dot-voting and now also subtitles and links per option can be found under 'advanced schema settings'.
The subtitle function allows all users to add another individual text per option. For example, you can create appointments that describe different days and places.
You can also add links per option that point to additional content, such as web pages or files. This is useful when evaluating the next destination. As an option, you can specify the location and also refer to the website of the hotel.
If you have more ideas that can help you and others to create the best polls and surveys on the World Wide Web, do not hesitate and write us! 😜
We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

Automatically assign tasks according to personal preferences
Distributing tasks is not always easy. Personal preferences as well as the mixture of unpleasant and pleasant tasks often make it difficult to decide who will take on what task.
PollUnit takes this decision from you, but also considers the priorities of your participants. Try the online tool and easily distribute your tasks. You proceed as follows:
You create a new PollUnit with the target 'Optima distribution of options'. Choose Starrating or Dot-Voting as the voting type. With the type Dot-Voting you can also limit the total number of votes per person. In step 4, you usually switch the participants' votes to hidden. So no one can see, who prefers which task. Now all participants can prioritize the tasks they would like to do.
After the PollUnit has expired or when you close your poll, the system distributes the tasks so that as many preferences as possible are taken into account.

With our new schema preview, creating polls is now even more easy
The poll tool PollUnit has recently been extended to include some new types and options. These settings also affect the basic functions of your surveys.
To make it even easier for you to schedule or create your task lists or requests for evaluation, we have launched our new schema previewer. Now, if you create a new PollUnit, you will see a schematic preview of your poll. Each change to the basic settings is shown schematically. This makes it even clearer what e.g. a change between star rating and dot voting means or how the result changes if you do not choose the target 'best option', but 'distribute options optimally'.
Have fun creating your new polls!

Create online polls about images
You want to find clothes in which you look best, or you need to make professional decisions about graphics, a process of reconciling images is often necessary.
But how do you share the pictures so that everyone can vote, whether your participant has the necessary graphic software, or can only be reached on the smartphone or sits in the agency and wants to easily see your pictures in high quality on the graphic monitor? The coordination process should be as fast and simple as possible!
With PollUnit, you can easily create a free online poll on images. You can upload your own pictures and use them in your poll. Depending on the target of your poll, the participants can then rate your pictures or choose a picture that best suits them.
Your participants can click through your gallery and rate each picture individually or vote in the overview.
For more information, we have written a tutorial for creating surveys with images for you.
