Current poll app features:

  • Instantly add the ability to survey your audience
    Get to know your visitors with this easy to use survey tool that you can drop into any existing web page.
  • Easy setup and configuration
    Don’t waste time logging into other products and visiting multiple screens. Stay on the same page to quickly create polls to include both single or multiple answers, manually sort your poll answers, view the total votes, and publish/unpublish at any time.
  • Rapidly create, edit, report, publish/unpublish, and delete polls
    Stay in the same page (where the app is installed) to create, intervene, or report on your poll at any time.
  • Clean and simple design - adapts to site look and feel
    The app fits seamlessly into existing site designs and provides settings to quickly customise styles to match branding.
  • Ask your audience anything - unlimited questions and unlimited responses
    Add as many answers in a single poll as you need and then get unlimited responses to your polls so you can hear from every visitor.
  • Showcase your poll with real-time results
    Results can be seen in real-time and are displayed by vote numbers and percentages. It's a great way to help your site visitors feel like they are part of your digital services community.
  • Display multiple polls from a single app
    You can choose to display any number of polls on your website and in any location, without having to provision extra apps. Simply copy and paste the same snippet of code and just change the ID to a name that best reflects why/where the poll is being used.
  • Works everywhere
    Support for many mobile and desktop devices, cross-browser compatible, and can be translated into any language.
  • Accessibility in mind
    Ensure assistive technologies can interpret dynamic features using current techniques from WAI-ARIA and WCAG 2.1.
  • Lightning fast performance
    Delivered by a smart CDN which makes sure the app loads and responds quickly, no matter where the user is located.
  • Auto upgrades
    Get new features as they ship, with no complex upgrade procedures. When an app updates automatically there is no need to change anything in Matrix. When it comes time to upgrade Matrix, no need to touch the app!

Poll features that can be achieved with a small amount of technical work in Matrix:

  • Hide and show polls based on specific requirements
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap the app embed snippet in any number of content rules e.g. personalise the poll based on who the user is, or only show polls if you are logged in.
  • View the poll voting by permissions
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap the embed snippet in the logic needed to limit the voting accessibility to guests, registered users or both, or blocks user access by cookie, IP and username.
  • Poll scheduling
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap each embed snippet with start/end date rules.

The Polls app requires a special Matrix connector package to be installed (by Squiz Support at no charge!) prior to dropping your app snippets into your website. The connector package allows for Drop-in-apps Connector Assets to be created which handles authentication between Matrix logged in users and the apps platform.

Once Squiz Support has installed the connector package, please visit the Matrix manuals website to review how best to configure the Drop-in-apps Connector Asset and then install your apps.
