Generate polls using natural language in Slack – just like you're chatting with a friend.

What’s it for

Enhance your productivity by leveraging our AI-powered solution to streamline poll creation. Just initiate your poll by sending a message to a Slack channel, starting with poll/

Unlike traditional chat-based poll creation tools, Actioner's AI can not only suggest options but also comprehend your poll preferences. The AI takes care of all the key components, such as formulating the question, providing answer choices, scheduling the poll, and more, to effortlessly generate your poll. 

This tool empowers your business and promotes team collaboration, leveraging Actioner's AI capabilities to simplify the poll creation process.

Generate polls with AI

  1. Type your poll with question, options, and any other configuration that you want and put poll/ at the beginning of your message.
  2. After AI interpreted your message, Actioner will send a Create poll button that enables you to control the poll fields before posting it.
  3. After you control the poll and make additional adjustments if you want, you can click the Create poll button.
  4. Your poll will be posted to the desired channel just like a regular poll.

How to get started

  1. Install the Poll app to your Slack workspace

Frequently asked questions

Unable to create polls using the poll/ keyword

Ensure that Actioner is added to the Slack channel where you're attempting to create the poll. Remember, Actioner can only interact with public channels. Additionally, you don't need to message the intended poll channel directly; create a separate channel, invite Actioner, and during poll confirmation, you can specify the channel where the poll will be posted.

Can I close a poll ahead of the scheduled time?

Absolutely. Once your poll is live, navigate to Settings and select Close the Poll to end it manually.

Is it possible to post a scheduled poll immediately?

Yes, you can. When a poll is scheduled, you'll receive a DM from the Poll app with details and options to Post the poll now or Cancel the poll. Click Post the poll now to share it ahead of the scheduled time.

Why can’t I make responses anonymous for Emoji polls?

Emoji polls record responses through visible emojis, and Slack does not currently support hiding the identities of emoji responders. Hence, anonymity isn't an option for emoji polls.

Why does the emoji poll have a warning about emoji spamming?

The Poll app takes around 2 seconds to log an emoji vote. If you send another emoji during this window, it could invalidate both responses. To prevent this, please wait a few seconds between sending emojis in polls.

Is there a limit on the number of custom poll templates I create?

No, there's no limit. Feel free to create as many custom poll templates as you need.

Is it possible to change the poll settings after it has been created?

Yes; when your poll is successfully posted, you can change poll settings through Settings and then Edit Poll buttons. You can update the closing time of your poll, anonymity settings, and multiple response options.

How do I select people to respond to a poll?

Currently, there is no setting in the Poll app that blocks people from responding to a poll but you can create a new channel for your poll to send and invite only the people whom you want to submit their responses to your poll.

Can I have multiple questions on a single poll?

At this time, you can't, but we will implement that feature in a future update.

Can I use Actioner Poll for free in Slack?

Yes, Actioner Poll is entirely free for users. You can get started right away.
