Add a Survey Question
Survey questions are entries that allow users to cast their votes in the form of replies. Forum displays the cumulative results of the survey in a bar chart. If you want, you can hide these results until the voting deadline has passed.
To add a survey question to a discussion forum:
Enter the polling question that you want to pose to other users, such as:
What is your favorite color?
Enter any additional information that respondents need in order to answer the survey question.
Enter a comma-separated list of choices for the respondents. Forum displays these choices in a radio-button list. To vote, users click on their choice.
For example, the entry may read:
red, green, blue, black, white
The remaining items on the form are optional. You can give users write-in votes (users can specify a new voting option under the category "other"), change the time limit for the survey (the default is 30 days), keep the results of the poll secret until the survey closes, and more.
Forum uploads the survey question. Users who view the entry can clickto cast their votes.
