Does the bot respond to verbal vote commands?

Currently, it does not. The only way to vote is to click on one of the voting buttons.

How do I change my vote?

To change your vote, simply click on the new option you’d like to select. We’ll automatically remove your old vote and replace it with the current one.

If you click on an option you already voted for, we’ll count this as an unvote.

How do I remove my vote?

Reclicking the same option you already voted for counts as an unvote.

 

Adding Comments

With just about any type of poll, you can add additional information with a comment. By default, comments are enabled for the following:

  • Multiple choice polls
  • 1-5
  • Agree/Disagree
  • Anonymous and non-anonymous
  • Hidden results

The only instance in which you cannot add a comment is for open-ended polls.

Adding a comment to a poll

To add a comment, simply click on the Add Comment button. A dialog box will appear right below the poll options where you can add your comment to the poll.

Once submitted, the comment will appear in-line below the poll results.

If it's non-anonymous, your name will be attached. If it's anonymous, letters will appear in place of your name. For hidden results, only the author will see the comments + votes.

By default, it will only show the first 1 or 2 comments depending on the length of the comment – to view all comments, you will need to navigate to your results tab.

Viewing comments from results tab

When you navigate over to your pinned Polly tab or the Polly message extension (if it is your poll you created) and find the desired results, you will see all the comments submitted for the poll below the votes.
