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.

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

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

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.

Hello Steve,

You can easily use our Survey Template.

However, please note that Poll Page Type which is used in Survey Template is temporary disabled due to security and performance improvements.

This is why the main functionality of this Template which is Poll will not work.

We will notify all our customers as soon as the Poll Page Type will be up and running again.

Best regards,
