Polly vs Google Forms: What's right for me?

There's a reason we're consistently one of the most popular apps in Slack and MS Teamsbut here's an honest assessment of which tool is better for you: 

 

 

When Polly is the perfect fit:

  • When you want instant results coupled with higher response rates.
  • When you need to setup recurring surveys, scheduling and reminders.
  • When you are looking for a native in-app experience within Slack, Teams or Zoom.
  • When data security and privacy are important to you.
  • When you want to add demographics filters to your results
  • When you want to engage your meeting participants with moderated Q&A, icebreakers, or trivia.
  • When you want to social games to play with your team on Slack or Teams.
  • When customising your anonymity and results sharing settings is important to you.
  • When you want the comfort of support via email and live chat with real humans!

  •  

When Google Forms might work better:

  • When you only want a web based link which can be shared via email or social media.
  • When you want to build lengthy surveys with multiple sections.
  • When you want to add conditional logic questions to your survey.
  • When you want the ability to customize visuals and themes.
  • When you want to add images, GIF's, or videos to your questions.
  • When you want to be notified about responses via email.
  • When you want to send respondents a copy of their response via email.
