There are a number of ways to start a poll. Type one of the following into a channel:

  • @polly What should we order for lunch? pizza,sushi . In this example, the question needs to have a question mark, and the options should be comma separated
  • @polly What should we order for lunch? / pizza / sushi . In this example, the question and each poll option need to be separated by a forward slash
  • @polly “What should we order for lunch?” “pizza” “sushi” . In this example, the question and each option needs to be enclosed in double quotes

You’ll need to specify at least 2 options, and at most 5 options.

Polls are currently not anonymous, and everyone has access to the results. We’re working on building in functionality that allows more granular controls for the author.

Polls cannot be authored in 1:1 chats with Polly, or in a tab at this time.
