The Create new poll page will open. Select a forum you wish to add a poll to. Enter your poll question, at least two possible choices and choose one of the available poll types:

  • Allow only one choice for this poll question - tick this option to give the participants the possibility to select only one answer.
  • Allow multiple choices for this poll question - tick this option to give the participants the possibility to select several responses to a single question.

Using the Add poll choice link you can add up to 15 choices. To delete one of the choices use the Delete Choice Icon icon to the right of the entry field.
