Feedback is important for teams to run successfully. This feedback can be from upper management, team leads or from your colleagues. Currently, Convo delivers crisp and clear feedback in the form of annotated comments and context aware threads. This helps in removing the feedback bottleneck and gives an easy way for everyone to understand what is required to be done.
However, some decisions need to be made fast and require a vote or a binary feedback. For example, whether to take up a certain project, if design A should be finalized or design B, or more casual decisions like where to have a team dinner etc. This kind of decision making, which requires the majority of team on board is best done through polls.
Fast Decision Making
Convo now introduces polls with its new update. Polls are an effective way to gather user opinion and help in the decision making process. Whether it is an important meeting you have to set time for, choose the best design for the upcoming merchandise or decide what to have for lunch, polls are your go-to choice.
To create a poll, simply click on the post editor and click the poll icon in the toolbar. This will ask you about the kind of poll you want to create.
After deciding what type of poll you want to create, simply add the poll question in the title, the ending date and options for the question and click share.
The number of votes given to each option will be displayed on hovering over the options. You will also be able to decide if you want to allow other members to see the poll results or not. Polls will give you insight on what your team actually is inclined towards and help you understand their mindset better as well as reach decisions faster.
Power of Polls and More
On Convo, polls are being released in a beta version and for now are completely free. This is done so you all can use them and help us improve them overtime. Go ahead and try creating a poll today to see how it works. If you can’t think of a question, just ask if everyone would like to have doughnuts at lunch (can never go wrong with doughnuts) .
