Note: This is for PoliteMail versions 4.5 - 4.8. Versions 4.9+ have a slightly different user interface to include Open Visibility. For more information about Open Visibility click here.
Open a New Message.
From the PoliteMail ribbon, select Feedback.
Select which type of survey you would like to use.
Type your question into the Question text box that pops up.
You will receive a pop up that asks if you would like to make the survey a poll. Select Yes or No.
If using the poll function, the message recipient can see the vote tally immediately after clicking on the poll link within the message and will be able to change their response.
The survey or poll will be added to your message.
To change the text for the question or any of the answers, place your cursor within the text you want to change, right-click and select Edit Hyperlink.
Change the Text to Display field at the top of the menu.
Note: DO NOT change the Address at the bottom of the Edit Hyperlink menu. It will break the PoliteMail link.
To view the results of your sent survey or poll:
Select Results > Messages
Locate the sent message and double-click on the line to bring up the metric report
Scroll to the bottom of the report to view the survey/poll results
Note: Message recipients can change a survey or poll answer at any time and the results will adjust accordingly. This won’t count as an additional vote, it will simply override their previous answer.
