How are Surveys different from Polls?

Polls Surveys
Fully native in Slack. No need for any participant to leave Slack Fully native in Slack. No need for any participant to leave Slack
Polls are posted in Slack channels where they are visible to all channel members. Anyone can participate Surveys are delivered privately via direct message to each respondent. The survey creator decides who should receive the survey
A poll has 1 question that everybody votes on A single survey can have up to 45 questions
Results are immediately shown to everyone in the channel Responses are only shown to the survey creator, who can then decide to distribute the results
Polls can be anonymous or not anonymous Surveys can be anonymous or not anonymous
Users can vote for one or more of the previously set up poll options The survey creator decides the “response type” for each question, which can be:
  • Short answer text
  • Single choice
  • Checkboxes
Great for quickly and collaboratively making decisions and for social use cases that bring teams together Great for pulse surveys, for soliciting feedback and for other use cases that benefit from multiple questions and from respondents not being able to see the results
