Instant Polls


With the Instant Polls template you can quickly create polls for you and your team to vote on. You can ask any question you'd like, add options to choose from, and share the app with your team to collect their votes.

It's a quick, easy, and fair way to gather opinions and come to a consensus.

:hammer_and_wrench: Builder tip: Votes are not anonymous, but don't worry, only app admin(s) can see the votes.

Getting Started

Sharing the app and new user experience

  1. Once they click on the Go! button, they will be shown the current polls.

  1. On the Polls screen, users can click on one of the polls to cast their vote.

Vote count

The easiest way to keep track of votes is to click on the poll and check the percentages. These are live, so you're users can stay current with how the poll progresses.

The Questions table is a another way to see which option has the most votes. Click on the funnel in the View Count column to determine the winner.

That's it! Happy polling!
