Poll and voting

A poll consists of a number of questions, each offering a list of answers. A poll is open for voting either to the member group of a workspace, in which it was created, or to the general public. Voting is limited to the voting period of the poll. Poll results may be viewed in graph­ical form during and after the voting period; results may also be exported for further pro­cess­ing.

A voting differs from a poll only in two respects: votes are personal and not anonymous, i.e. each participant can see how the others have voted, and the participants of a voting may be arbitrary persons identified by their user name or email address, i.e. participants are not re­stricted to the member group of the workspace that contains the voting.
