Online voting tool

PollUnit has evolved!
We want to give you a short update.

With PollUnit you can create polls, votings, schedulings and rate images. We use new methods to test ideas and to make selections and decisions in a group. This includes, for example, dot voting, range voting and systemic consensus.

You have a variety of extensions at your disposal. For example: vote without login, comments, allow new options, expiration date, password protection, limits, hidden votes, effects, randomly sorted options and much more.

But also tools to manage your polls, logos and themes, as well as groups and teams are available. You can embed your polls directly on your website or use them as real-time elements on stage.

Here you will find an overview of methods for your online voting.

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.

Learn more in ourTutorial »Integrate polls on your own website«.

Redesign of our poll management

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 < href="https://pollunit.com/en/voting">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.

Polls where users can add options

PollUnit is all about finding a collaborative decision. We offer many ways to vote and rate. From simple yes / no votes to an online dotmocracy solution - also known as dotvoting.

PollUnit is more than a tool for online voting. You can create polls and allow participants to add their own options. Your participants can thus actively shape the poll and together you will find the best idea, solution, date or the most beautiful photo.

The basic functions are free for you. Try it out now. In our tutorial "Create your first poll" you can find more information.

This makes PollUnit your ideal tool for evaluating layouts, graphics or documents in a team or with the customer - whether one-sided flyers or multi-page layouts.

The users of the poll with PDFs do not even need an account and can participate in your poll without registering.

Try it now and create your first free poll.

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.
