Hello, It is not clear to me right away, can the poll be set up as open to public to submit an image (for image contest) but voting be private between small group of those who I share info with? Please help. Thanks
At the moment, we do not distinguish between normal users and something like a jury. I think a jury function is a good idea, I'll bring that as a feature request to the next meeting.
But what you can do right now is this:
You create a PollUnit where photos can be uploaded but not voted. After the submission period you deactivate the possibility to upload new pictures. Download all pictures with the help of our export and create a new PollUnit, which you only share with your jury. After the voting you can close the first PollUnit and mark the winner.
It is not perfect, but with bulk download and bulk upload the effort is still limited.
I'm also very interested in the a hybrid option that allows public user likes and voting but also accommodates private jury selection. If this feature were available I would recommend it to every photo/art program.
