Posting community polls

A poll is a great way to gain information from your community quickly. You can gather fantastic insights into the condition of the community, as well as how people interact with your charity. Polls are also great for engagement, members who do not normally engage in posts can more easily take part on polls.

Examples of poll questions include: 

  • How did you hear about our charity?
  • How well do you feel your condition has been managed over the last year? 
  • What was the most significant source of support when you were diagnosed with [condition]?
  • In general how would you rate your health?
  • What affects your participation (posts and comments) on the community? Select all that apply
  • Did you know other people living with [condition] before joining this community?
  • What do you find most valuable about the community? Select all that apply.
  • At what age were you (or your loved one) diagnosed with [condition]? (Single answer)

Please note that you must be an administrator of the community in question in order to be able to create a poll.
