Create polls with custom URLs
Simplify your poll links with a custom PollUnit URL
With a custom PollUnit URL, you can shorten your URL or generate a branded URL that associates your vote with your brand name or product. You can also create URLs that are easier for your participants to remember and type.
Custom URLs increase respondents' trust and the participation rates of your surveys. In combination with your own logo and design, the overall experience of your participants will be significantly improved.
If you create a PollUnit with our Poll Creator, you can now choose your own URL in the »Advanced« step.

Share your polls with QR Codes
A QR Code (Quick Response Code) is a two-dimensional code that can be used to encode strings such as a URL. Most smartphones and can scan and interpret QR Codes via software.
With such a QR code you can now easily share your online voting. In the last step in our voting generator, a QR code that points to the member link of your vote or poll is automatically created .
The QR Code can be downloaded and printed on postcards, flyers or posters. Your audience or your participants can scan the code and will be forwarded to your PollUnit and the survey can start without entering a URL.
To scan a QR code, your participants will need a scanner app. Various apps of this kind can be found and installed free of charge in app stores. After the installation the app can be started and the camera can be held above the QR code. The code will be read and the URL will be called automatically.

Collaborate in organizations and manage polls together
We have expanded our business and enterprise accounts to include organizations and user management. With one organization you can share, create, manage and evaluate polls and surveys with multiple users.
If you belong to an organization, you can switch between your private PollUnit account and the organization account. The members of the organization get access to the PollUnits created for the organization. As a member you can also use the premium, business and enterprise functions of the organization. Thus you do not only create and administer online polls and free tables, but also logos, designs and participant lists. Your private account remains unaffected and only you can view and manage its content.

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 email@example.com.

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.
