Question 1: How do I create a poll? Top

Perform the following steps:

  1. Type The name of your poll? A first choice, A second choice
    Note how punctuation allows to parse the poll title (using ?) and choices (using ,).
    A second syntax is allowed: OpenAgora "The name of your poll" "A first choice" "A second choice"
    You obtain the following message: Poll creation with Open Agora "new" command in Microsoft Teams
  2. Optionally, anyone in the channel may add other choices at any time by typing in the Reply box:
    add Another choice, "A choice, with a comma", Yet another choice
    (choices separated by commas, you may do this several times)
  3. Optionally, channel members may remove choices by replying: remove Another choice
    (here, Another choice is a unique prefix for the removed choice. In our example, Another would have been sufficient to select the same choice, while A would have been ambiguous).
    Be careful since this deletes all associated votes and cannot be reverted.
Question 2: How do I vote? Can I change my vote? Top

In order to vote, simply hit the desired choice button in the published post: Vote buttons in a Open Agora poll in Microsoft Teams
Clicking several buttons allows to select multiple preferred choices.

If a choice has already been selected, clicking on it again removes it from the set of preferred choices. In all cases, an application message is issued in response to every user click, to tell whether the choice was added or removed to the user’s selection.

Question 3: Is it possible to see the result during the vote? Top

Yes! Starting with the first user vote, the poll message is extended with the poll result: Open Agora poll result in Microsoft Teams This result is updated automatically each time a new vote is issued.

Question 4: Can we see who specifically voted for each choice? Top

In the poll message, details of votes are given after the result: Voters of a poll in Open Agora for Microsoft Teams

As for the result, details are displayed after the first user votes, and are kept updated after each new vote.
Depending on the number of choices and voters, the application selects the most appropriate display mode (by voter, or by choice).

Question 5: Can we restrict polling to a group of users? Top

Yes, in order to do this you have to create a private team where you will hold “sensitive” restricted polls. Only the team members will be able to see these polls and to be part of them.
