Online poll is a great option for business owners who would like to conduct their own research. The time span needed to complete a poll is shorter than that of traditional research method. Using online questionnaires can halve your research costs. The results of the online survey are ready to be analyzed at any time. It is entertaining. It is easy. It is flexible.


How to create such survey within your app? Use Poll page type.


Follow the tutorial to edit the page.


Step 1.  In order to add a new Poll page to your app access the app's Dashboard. Go to Edit Pages option, then click "+" Add button.


In the search engine enter "poll" keyword to find the page. Click on the page - > Use this page type -> enter the page identifier - > Add Page.


Step 2.  Edit the page by adding a question and possible answers to it.




Press "+" to add new answers or "-" to delete the existing.


Change the order of the answers


Write in this field the answer text


Redirect the user to a page if he selects a specific answer. This option is available if you   do not choose "Allow multiple selection" and "Allow another answer" (see 2.5)


Enable or disable some options for your poll page type.

  • Allow multiple selection - the participants can select multiple answers
  • Allow other answers - the participants can provide their own answer
  • Allow results preview - the participants can view the results of the survey
  • Allow next page without submit - the participants can go to the next page without submitting an answer for the question


Click on "Edit Question" for adding or editing the Poll Question


Click on "Show Results" for viewing current poll results


After the answer has been submitted you can choose a page to redirect the user



Step 3. Press SAVE

Below you can find the images how the page is looking on a real device.

Are you able to change the background and font type within the poll page?

Hi, Jessie

Since the Question Page is a HTML based page, you're able to edit these.

Best regards,

I created my poll, but when I test from the app, I don't get the results page. Nothing happens when I click "Submit." The results aren't showing on my admin page, either
Travis, please be informed that the "Poll" page type is not yet available for the SC Android.

I'm assuming this can't be published to your app as a live feed?  I'd like to change the questions weekly if possible?

You can add new questions weekly by using our SYNC feature: http://seattleclouds.com/sync

Is it possible, to include the poll with the data to my normal website? This would be a great feature.

Hello, Chros

Unfortunately this option is not yet added for this page type.

Hi, is this page available for Android yet?
Unfortunately, no.

Does the poll page update when any user/person submits an answer or is does it just show results for the local user? When I test on 2 devices, I'm not getting the other submissions to show in the results, but wondering if this is just because the app is not yet published....

The answers are stored in your database. I've tested on 5 devices and all is working as it should.

will this be available on android anytime soon?

No ETA. Sorry.

Can you have multiple questions on the poll page? 
Unfortunately, no.
I would like that feature too

Any way to get the poll results pushed to another device? We want to poll users at a tradeshow then push the final results to displays in the venue at the end of the day.

A full report is available in the page editor (website).

I see there is an Android symbol beside this page type now - is it working on Android?

After an answer has been submitted, can you redirect a pdf page?  I have a "question of the day" and would like the next button to redirect to an explanation of the answer.  This initially worked when I published the app, but when I tried to change the question, the next button no longer works.
Yes Katelin, this workflow will work.

Hi, I was wondering if any one else has this issue, but when using polls in a live or test app, I get an error that "your vote cannot be submitted". 
Any suggestion is appreciated. 

 PS. Posted a screenshot of the error.
