Share, Print and Export

The survey will now be published and you will be forwarded to the administration page. Here you can also change settings later and access voting results. If you want to share the survey, you have the choice between these two options (Abbildung 4):

  • Share the "Admin link for the poll" (18).
  • Share the "Public link to the poll" (19).

Here you also have the options to "Print" (20) your poll or "Export to CSV" (21). You can also "delete the poll" (22) and of course "cast your own vote" (23) and "leave a comment" (24) (Figure 4).
