Sharing Polly via Link & Link Unfurls

Learn how to create links and share your polly with your colleagues via text, email or chat.

How does link sharing work?

If you'd like to share a created polly to multiple locations in Teams without creating a copy every time, you can do so by creating a ๐Ÿ”—link to the polly and sharing that instead.

  • Link sharing only works with pollys that are still open for responses and not closed pollys. 
  • You can only create a link for your own polly and share it with others. 
  • Links can be shared with anyone in your company, even if they are not part of the same channel.  
  • Only users in the same tenant can use the link to respond.
