Poll

The Polls application is aimed at the facilitation of decisions in small groups of people who trust each other, for example to decide on a meeting date/time.

It is not suited for polling a large number of people, or for situation where the security of the votes is paramount. To cast a vote, each user must have edit rights to the document. This enables each participant to modify and/or delete answers from other participants.

A complete re-write of this application is planned for late 2020.
