Find, filter and sort your PollUnits
Today we released a new feature for all power users of our Online Voting Tool. You can now search, filter and sort your PollUnits.
In your overview you will find a search field with which you can search for the title, the description, as well as the name of the creator of the PollUnit. The matching PollUnits will be displayed as a result.
You can sort lists according to three criteria: the newest PollUnits, the newest activities in your PollUnit and titles.
Click on the filter icon to enter the advanced search. Here you can filter for further attributes of your PollUnits. E.g. if you only want to see date polls or if you want to filter for dot votes. The filters can be combined arbitrarily - also with the search!
For all who are new to PollUnit: have a look at our homepage for an overview of our features for free polls and surveys.

Evaluate polls per country
As already announced, we have extended our tools for the evaluation of polls and surveys. You can now evaluate your participants per country.
Using the GeoLite2 data from MaxMind, we can now find out the country of your voter and make it available to you anonymously. Opinions and tastes can vary regionally and these country-specific differences in your international surveys can now be identified quickly and reliably.
The country evaluation works for all types of our online voting and gives you an insight into the regionally different preferences of your participants.
Further information can be found in our tutorial Evaluate your PollUnit. If we can help you with more tools to better understand your votes, use our forum for a feature request or write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Limit the number of participants per option or date
We have extended the possibility of limiting participants in your PollUnit voting. You can now choose between three limitation types.
No Limits means that every voter can vote for any option, no matter how many other participants voted for that option before.
A global limit on all options allows you to limit the number of participants of all options to the same number. For example, with a limit of 1, each option can only be selected once.
Individual limits per option are limitations on options or dates. You can configure the number of possible participations per option here. For example, you can plan online courses with different numbers of seats.
You will find the settings for this in step 4, the advanced settings, when creating your voting.

The old must give way to the new
Recently we had more server failures and PollUnit was sometimes not available. This was due to our oldest server instance, which had been in operation for more than 2 years.
We replaced the old fat server with two new youthful slim instances. In addition, we have extended our monitoring to become more quickly aware of problems.
We apologize and are confident to offer a more stable service from now on.

Functions for a better evaluation of your votes
In order to quickly and easily get the right insights from the data of your poll, there will be more and more possibilities for evaluation in the near future. We have already started with the conversion and give the administrators new tools into the hand.
Beside structural updates there is now the possibility to see the distribution of votes on options at a glance. So you can see the number of people that have your options with one, two, three, etc. points. This is useful, for example, if you have designs rated by products. Designs that were especially often rated with full points will probably sell better than designs with a higher average rating but fewer maximum points. So in this example the number of pieces of individual products can be calculated better.
In the participant overview you see beside the voters and the invited users who have not yet voted an overview when the votes were cast in your PollUnit.
Next, we will enable you to perform the evaluations country-specifically. Opinions and tastes can vary greatly from country to country. So you can see if voting results differ.
If you have ideas how we can help you to better evaluate your polls and votes, write a feature request in our support forum.

Create a Slack Dot Voting
From now on you can create and perform dot-votings in our Slack App in addition to simple yes / no and star ratings.
In a Dot-Voting the participants vote with a limited number of points. Each participant distributes his/her dots among the available options. The option with the most dots wins.
Try it for free and add PollUnit to your Slack Apps. You don't have to leave Slack anymore to start a poll. With the command »/pollunit create« you can create polls within Slack.

Rate pictures with and without caption
Today we have a small update for all users who want to rate images with PollUnit. PollUnit showed the file name or a freely selectable caption for each image. Now you can also hide the caption for the participants.
For example, you can hide generic names assigned by your camera or smartphone. But you can also hide voting relevant file names. In the evaluation and in the admin of your picture poll the names remain visible to you for later identification.

Updates for our Yes / No votings
We have adapted and extended our Yes-No polls to your feedback. The following has changed:
Better visibility of missing votes on new options
If a new option has been added to your poll, an empty field will appear in the voters' line. Only if your participant votes for or against the option will the field be filled in.
Upvoting or downvoting
With our »Yes« polls, your voters can upvote your options. Negative and neutral votes are combined and ignored. With the target »lowest resistance« you can only collect negative votes and ignore positive votes.
No and undecided as answer
With our »Yes / No« surveys you can allow your participants to rate your options negative or neutral. A negative vote will be subtracted from the positive votes.
Have fun voting!
