Create a poll

There are a few ways to quickly survey the team from a channel in your workspace. You can conduct a poll using emoji reactions. Or add an app to your workspace that’s built to run polls for more functionality.


Install a polling app

The Slack App Directory has several apps that help you poll members and collect feedback quickly.

Explore the directory to find apps with the right level of features and functionality for your needs: anonymity, hidden results, scheduling, reminders, event-triggered surveys, templates and more!

  1. Visit the Slack App Directory, then search for keywords such as “poll” and “survey” to find apps that interest you.
  2. Install an app to your workspace. For step-by-step instructions, read Add an app to your workspace.

Featured apps:
Polly, Simple Poll, Survey Monkey and more!

Use emoji reactions  

Using emoji reactions, you can poll teammates to help make quick decisions – such as where to pick up lunch or to choose the best time to meet. 

Here’s an example: Associate an emoji with each option you want people to vote for. Then ask people to cast their vote by reacting with the appropriate emoji.
