Editing Polls

From the main edit screen, users can also edit the settings, positioning, and results page for their polls. 

The Settings menu allows users to customize the primary and secondary colors, adjust the borders, or even add a background music track. 

The Positioning menu allows for positioning the poll on the left, right, or center of the screen. 

The Results Page menu shows results of the poll, along with editable fields for a message and image. 

Poll Types

Multiple Choice

Type answer choices into the available fields. Click the + icon to add more answer choices and click the X icon next to a choice to delete it (supports 2 to 4 answer choices).
