How do I create a poll?

There are a couple of ways to create a poll! 

One way – the modal window

The modal window gives a lot of guidance, and allows you to preview polls before creating them:

You can get to this via the "Attachments and shortcuts menu in Slack:

If “Create poll with Simple Poll” is not in the list already, you can search for it by typing poll:

A different route to the modal window is to use the “Create a poll” button in Simple Poll Home:

Another way – the slash command

Another simple way to create a poll is by using the poll slash command:

/poll "Poll question?" "Option 1" "Option 2" "Option 3"

Using this method, you can still limit votes, allow others to add options, make the poll anonymous, and even use custom emoji! 😄

For example:

/poll "What’s your favorite emoji?" "Laughing crying" :joy: "Heart" :heart: "Smiling eyes" :blush: limit 1 allow-options anonymous
