Creating a Multiple Choice Polly

Learn how to add multiple choices to your pollys in just a few clicks!

Multiple choice pollys allow polly authors to ask responders to select answers from the choices offered as a list. They are easy to create pollys which allow you to add your own choices, helping you in producing easy-to-analyze clean data.

If you're creating a polly, by default, Polly will start your polly as multiple choice with the ability to add up to 30 choices via Slack app and 60+ choices via web dashboard.

In the question type drop down, you can select a different type of question or proceed authoring a multiple choice polly.
