New Comprehensive and GDPR-compliant Policies

It's been a long time (almost 5 years!) since we last updated the policies governing our apps. Back then, we had hired a law firm to craft the terms for us. They did a good job but lots have changed since then, notably with the adoption of strict data privacy laws in Europe and California. We thought it was time to review and update our policies accordingly.

Introducing Question Skip Logic

A New Metric To Track Likes On Your Page

Example of a Page Likes increase stats

Today we are introducing a new metric on the Stats page that will help you track the increase of Likes on your Page. The app records the number of Likes when the poll is added to your Page tab and will stop monitoring after the poll closes or once it's taken off the Page. This will give you a good overview of how your fan based increased while the poll was running. This is especially helpful if you added a Like button to your poll and want to track the impact on your Page Likes.

Search And Filter Your Polls

Today we are happy to finally make it easier to search and filter polls.
