Running a quick poll is a great way to get feedback from your team on anything from an upcoming lunch order to picking the best photo for a company blog post.
How to run a poll to collect ideas
- Write up a message that asks for input and offers options. Use message formatting to make sure the voting options are really clear.
- Ask people to respond using emoji reactions. You may want to put one vote on each, to make it easier for others to just tap to vote.
- Wait a bit and see which consensus forms to help you make a decision.
