Polls and Questions are the fastest way to quickly get members engaging. Your Mighty Network has a question feature as well as three different polls: a Multiple Choice Poll, "Hot Cold" Poll, and a "Percentage" Poll.
They are available on The Community Plan or higher, and are disabled by default.
Enable Polls and Questions
Once you've upgraded to The Community or The Business Plan, you can go to Network Settings > Content > Polls and Questions to enable Polls and Questions.
You can choose to let All Members Create Polls and Questions or limit it to just Hosts and Moderators. Once enabled, the option to add a Question or a Poll is available on the "+" button at the top of the Activity Feed.
You can also a new Question or Poll directly from the simple post field at the top of the Activity Feed. Once you open the field, you'll see the option to post to either the Network level or click into the dropdown to choose a Course or Group to publish to.
You'll also have the option to add a Topic.
From there, the bottom dropdown will give you the option to add a Question or one of the three types of Polls.
How a Question is Displayed
When you add a Question, it's posted to the Activity Feed in either your Mighty Network or the Course or Group you posted to.
Multiple Choice Polls
To add a Multiple Choice, Hot Cold, or Percentage Poll when you're on the web, just select the option to add a poll from the box at the top of the feed. Then, select the poll type you want to use. For Multiple Choice polls, you can customize up to five answers.
When you're done, other members are invited to contribute their experience.
As more members answer your poll, you can see how you stack up relative to the rest of the Network.
Hot Cold Polls
Hosts and members can also add Hot Cold polls for asking questions that might include answers that land across a positive or negative spectrum. To add a Hot Cold poll, change the poll type to “Hot Cold” from the dropdown menu.
Hot Cold polls show up in the feed as a toggle bar, where members can choose their answer on a negative-to-positive scale.
Hosts and members also have the ability to create Percentage polls on the web. To add a Percentage poll, just select “Percentage” from the poll dropdown menu.
A Few Other Details
By default, Hosts can add an unlimited number of Polls. Members are limited to one every hour. This is to ensure that any one member doesn't get too enthusiastic with new questions and overwhelm the experience for everyone.
The Poll color corresponds to the Topic in which it’s been added.
When a Poll or Question takes off and starts trending, it will surface to more members in their Activity Feeds.
