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

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

 

 

When Polly is the perfect fit:

  • You want to quickly run polls without having to worry about an extensive set up.
  • You want to set up recurring polls on a regular schedule.
  • You want the ability to send reminders to people who haven't responded.
  • You want a variety of question types to choose from such as emoji scale, agree/disagree, or 1-5 ratings.
  • You want to build team connections with fun games like Trivia and Quizzes
  • You want to engage your meeting audience through icebreakers, live quizzes, trivia etc.
  • You want a library of 20+ customisable survey templates around employee engagement, onboarding, feedback, product development, and more. 
  • You want to send the survey within the channel as a post (not as link) so the audience can relate to the context while responding.
  • You want the ability to view all your surveys and their results in one central dashboard within Teams.
  • You want to filter results by sending location (i.e. group chat, channel, meeting).
  • You want the survey results to be shared automatically upon survey closure.
  • You want real humans on live chat and email to resolve your support queries.
  •  

When Microsoft Forms might work better:

  • You are looking for a web based solution that allows form sharing via link, email & QR code with Microsoft account holders.
  • You want to build complex, lengthy surveys with multiple sections allowing for progress bar views.
  • You want to create surveys in different languages.
  • You want to add conditional logic questions to your survey.
  • You want the ability to customize visuals and themes.
  • You want to be notified about responses via email
  • You want to send respondents a copy of their response via email
