How Do I Create a Poll?

In Schoox, you can track your employees' feedback or opinions by creating polls.

To set up a Poll, click Admin in my academy’s navigation bar, and then select Polls

You can then select either "Standalone Poll", "Course Poll", "Curriculum Poll" or "Group Poll". 


Give the Poll a title and a description. You can also set up an expiration date for the Poll, and decide whether or not the members (or just admins) will be able to view the Poll results.

Add some questions to your Poll. You can add as many questions as you'd like by clicking on the Add Question button. 

You have the option to combine the following different types of questions:

  • closed-ended questions, having all of the possible answers predefined.
  • open-ended questions, where users are able to submit their own answer, instead of having to choose between predefined answers.

By clicking the add answer plus sign, you can add as many answers as you'd like.

Please note:

  • each closed-ended question needs to have at least two answers.
  • delete an answer by clicking its "x" button
  • you can reorder the answers' sequence with a simple drag and drop.

Click on the blue Save button when finished.

By default, your poll is in private mode. To make it visible to your employees you have to publish it by flipping the Public toggle to "yes".

1. Standalone Polls

If you publish a Standalone Poll, this becomes visible to all the employees and they can access it from their Home page, under the Polls section.

However, you have the option to make your Standalone Poll available only to specific Employees. To do so, mark your Poll as private, go to the Manage Polls tab (under Polls), find the Poll in question and click on the Assign option.


You will be given the option to assign the poll either to specific employees (Individual Assignment) or to a group of employees based on their job and location (Advanced Assignment).


2. Course Polls 

You can create a Poll as a step of a course. You can decide if the Poll will be needed for the course completion or not.

Please note: Course polls have no Expiration Date.


Moreover, you have the option to Upload an Image for your Course-Poll. Just go to Manage Polls under the Polls tab from your Course panel, find the Poll in question and upload an image!


3. Curriculum Polls

You can create a Poll as a part of a curriculum. You can decide if the Poll will be needed for curriculum completion or not.

Please note: Curriculum polls have no Expiration Date.


4. Group Polls 

You can also create a Poll that will be available to all members of a particular group.
