Polls are an easy way to gain valuable insight from your readers about topics that matter to you. They also help to both break up copy text in the Immerse level and to provide opportunity to engage and encourage your readers to share your content on social networks.

Adding a poll

Select the Poll widget within the Immerse editor.

Populate the fields with your poll question and possible answers.

The poll will automatically be styled in line with your predefined poll style. 

Poll configuration and sharing 

To amend the poll settings for sharing, hover over the poll widget until you can view the options menu. Select the Settings icon.

Enabling Sharing

Enable or disable sharing for this poll using the toggle. Sharing for all polls is automatically enabled. 

Note:
• The sharing networks that the reader can share your content to are determined by the company sharing settings.
• If sharing has been disabled for the entire Story, sharing options will not be visible to reader, even is the toggle for sharing this poll is turned on.

Bespoke tweet

When a reader shares your poll on twitter, the tweet is automatically populated as the poll question itself. However, you can choose to override this with different text by populating the tweet box. To restore the poll question as the default tweet, just leave the box blank.

Bespoke sharing link 

When a reader shares your poll on social networks, it will also include the URL link of the Story itself within the social card. This allows the followers of the sharer to easily access your content, which is a great way to obtain a wider audience and drive further reads. 

You can override the Story link with a different URL link by adding this to the link box. To restore the Story URL, just leave the box blank.
