Polls

You can find this section under Interface & Design > Polls in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

This section allows you to create and host online polls/surveys on your website. Polls can be used as a method of research to gauge public opinion on aspects of your site or your industry. Polls are typically limited to a small sample of people so the results should be regarded as a general indication as opposed to an exact reflection of the public's opinion. IRP Polls are multiple choice and allow the customer to vote for one option against the question.

Examples of Polls questions include:

  • What do you like most about yourIRP.com?
  • What do you like least about yourIRP.com?
  • How did you find yourIRP.com?
  • What is your favourite industry publication/news website?
  • What is most important to you when purchasing goods online?
  • What is your favourite sports brand?

Poll in Admin:

Note: You need to have the following Application Settings enabled in order for your poll to show on the front end:

  • Show Right Nav
  • Show Poll In Right Hand Navigation

You can find both of these in the ‘Navigation - Right’ grouping.
