Polly vs Simple Poll: What's right for me?

Of course we and the people who have sent millions of pollys are biasedthere's a reason we're consistently one of the most popular apps in Slackbut here's an honest assessment: both apps allow everyone to send polls thanks to the included free plans, but there are some limitations. Advanced users will need to switch to the paid plans to uncover more.

 

 

Why choose Polly over Simple Poll

  • More flexibility and control in question types and settings.
  • Advanced features, like customized anonymity settings and demographics filters.
  • Automation capabilities, API/Webhook access.
  • Results dashboard with rich graphical analysis.
  • Live chat support from real humans!

 

Features our customers rave about but can't do with Simple Poll

  • Editing a poll/survey after creation e.g. changing close date, or editing choices.
  • Sharing of results and templates to collaborate and co-author.
  • 9 question types to choose from such as multiple choice, open ended, emoji scale etc. Simple Poll only offers 3 question types.
  • Over 30 customizable templates for your daily standups, all hands feedback, employee NPS, manager feedback, pulse checks, and more!
  • One-click sharing of results with responders, or set custom results visibility while creating.
  • Guarantees a higher response rate by allowing non - Slack users to respond to the pollys as well through the web voting feature.
  • Social games (Trivia, Hot Takes, Employee Awards) are perfect for remote team building and engagement.
  • Our easy-to-use web dashboard allows you to quickly and effectively visualize your results data.
