Vevox Poll Types

You can create the following question types in a poll:

Multichoice polls

A multichoice poll is where you ask a question and the participants have a number of options to choose from.

You can decide if the participant can choose only one option or you can set the poll so that the participant can choose more than one option.
You can even show if there is a right answer to your poll.

Word Clouds

A word cloud is a collection or cluster of words depicted in different sizes, or an image that visualizes the most important words. The bigger and bolder the word appears, the more often it’s mentioned within a given poll and the more important it is.

Ranking polls

With a ranking poll, it is all about the order of the choices that are voted upon.

There are two ways of asking a ranking poll:

  • Rank the choices in order of preference (No right or wrong answer here.)
  • Or rank the choices in the correct order. A point gets allocated if ALL the options were ranked in the correct order.

Ranking polls are an excellent tool for market research and testing knowledge.

Text polls

Text polls are questions that don’t just need a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer, instead it requires the participant to elaborate on their points.

When a text question is asked, the participant can click on the answer box and their mobile keyboard will appear. After they have finish typing they must press the send button. With a text poll, participants can enter a response of up to 2,000 characters including emojis.

Pin on image polls

A pin on image poll is where you can ask a poll and your participants have to point to specific parts of an image, identify sections on an image or indicate their preferences on an image.

You can decide if:

The participant can place one pin on an image.
Or you can set the polls so that the participant can place multiple pins on the same image.
You can set correct answers to your image poll.
