Can others add options to my poll?

Allow others to add options in a new poll

To allow others to add new options to a new poll you are creating, check the box for Allow options from others under the Settings section during the creation of the poll. 

If you are creating a poll using the /poll command, you can add the keyword allow-options to enable this setting:

/poll “Hit me with your Netflix recommendations! I'll go first…” “The Last Dance 🏀” “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee ☕” allow-options
