create a poll

Did you know there’s a feature on Landcarer that allows you to run a poll with the whole Landcarer community?

You might be trying to find out which particular pest control method people have had most success with. Or maybe you want to pick some brains about proven volunteer recruitment or engagement tactics.

By creating a Landcarer poll you can get feedback from other Landcarer users.

When you log into Landcarer, click to Add Poll in the green shortcuts menu on the left of the page to get started.

Location of button to create poll

This will open an ‘Add New Poll’ page, where you can add the details for your poll. You’ll need to start with the question you are asking. Keep it clear and simple for people to understand!

You can include some information in the Description box to give people an idea of why you’re running the poll and what you’re looking to get out of it.

If you’d like to include your group logo or a photo to illustrate the poll you can drag and drop the file into the green box underneath the description.

There is space for four potential answers for your poll, with the option to ‘Add More’ underneath these if you’d like to.

At the bottom of the page you have some options to choose from:

Public Votes: You can choose whether to display which option people have voted for, or hide that information. Simply click the button icon to green if you’d like to display it.

Allow multiple choice: Here you can select whether you’d like people to be able to select more than one option or not.

Set Close Time: If you’d like to leave your poll open for a set period of time, you can choose to Set Close Time and add the date and time that the poll will automatically close. You’ll need to select this option and edit the poll once it’s live to select your preferred date and time.

Privacy: Finally, you can choose whether your poll can be seen by Friends on Landcarer, Friends or Friends, or just yourself.

Once you’ve made your selections you can click to Submit the poll, which will make it live.
