Today, we're launching two new exciting products that mark the next chapter of smart and automated surveys in the world of enterprise collaboration. 🎉 The first of two products we're launching is called Workflows, where Polly will send automated trigger-based polls or surveys and collect feedback at scale for you, without having to manually create the survey every time an event happens. The second of two products in tandem with Workflows is our REST API that'll allow just about anyone to do custom survey workflows for their workspace.

For important company-wide results for a survey, there's a good chance that other people in your company will need access to it, too. Some examples would be your supervisor, investors, department head, or your cross-functional project lead. We strive to continuously foster the same culture of openness and transparency that Slack is ubiquitous with – which is what Polly aims to do by increasing the ability to share out important results to your stakeholders.
