Polls Tool

The Poll tool allows users to set up an online vote.

Users can vote for one or more of any number of answer options. The structure of the vote is governed by a maximum and minimum number of options that may be selected.

Instructors and site owners can choose when results are available to voters: immediately, after voting, after the closing date, or never.
