  3. Provide the following information:
  4. 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.

  5. Click OK.

    Forum uploads the survey question. Users who view the entry can click Vote to cast their votes.
