Search And Filter Your Polls
December 19, 2019
Polls for Pages is almost 10 years old and we have many long time customers that created hundreds of polls over the last few years. We heard from these customers that it can be difficult and frustrating to find old polls. At 5 polls per page, it requires a lot of patience to browse back through all previous polls. Today we are happy to finally make it easier to search and filter polls.
At the bottom of the page showing all your polls, next to the pagination, you will now see a button with a magnifying glass icon. This button will only appear if you created at least 15 polls. Click it to reveal the search menu. There are 3 criteria you can use to filter your polls:
- A range of date for the time of creation of the poll
- The title of the poll
- An active/closed toggle for the current status of the poll
We hope this new feature will help our loyal and curious customers find old polls more easily!
One more thing!
While we were at it, we also improved the filters to search answers. It is now possible to filter for a range of date and select more than one option for multiple-choice question filters. So if, for example, you were doing a "Favorite Christmas Movie" voting, you could filter answers to see only participants that answered a week ago and selected "The Grinch" or "Home Alone" as their answer.
Merry searching and happy New Year!
