Change your dot voting while running
Today we announce another feature that one of our customers requested and is now available for all of you.
Imagine the following case: You create a Online Dot Voting with 10 points to be distributed. Now you want to change the number of possible points after some participants have already cast their votes. For example because the number of options has increased.
Until now our online voting tool did not allow this. Since today, admins can increase the number of points while your online rating is running. All participants with a PollUnit account will be informed that additional points can be distributed.
A reduction of the dots is not possible because if the dots are decreased and somebody has already voted, we would need to subtract points from voted options.

Create online rating with a flexible number of stars
With our voting tool you can now also create flexible star ratings. For example, surveys with 0-5 stars or 0-10 stars are possible.
So you are completely free to choose how granular your participants can rate options. In addition, we will now show you the total and the average of all awarded stars in our participant list. This also works with our Online Dot Voting.
Here you can find more information about our star rating. Or try it right away and click on "Create PollUnit" and create your first free feedback entry.

Choose a final result after your online voting
Sometimes it happens that our online voting tool delivers results with the same points or the result with the most points is not the best result after all. Therefore, a final result can now be selected when you close your online voting.
For example, when closing your date poll you can now decide on which date the meeting will take place. The final result is then displayed as the best result in your date poll. The actual points of the individual options are retained.

Online team voting on a single computer
There are news for our users who carry out live votings and polls in the office with only one or a few computers. With our new feature »Change participants« several participants can now cast their votes on one computer without an account.
You can enter your name and vote as usual. By clicking on »New participant« your identity on the browser will be deleted and the next participant will be able to vote.
If a participant without an account clicks on »New participant«, he can no longer change votes. Participants with PollUnit account can still edit their votes by logging in again.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll allow you to vote with almost unlimited participants.

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.

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.
