"Great for short, informal surveys"

What do you like best?

Integration in slack makes it much more likely for our employees to complete surveys, because they don't have to click around everywhere. You can see results in comments in slack too- the whole integration is great. They have pretty good templates for surveys as well. We have taken a few and customized them for our own needs.

What do you dislike?

Once a survey is sent, you don't have the option to change it or to even change the close date, so if something needs to be changed you have to go ahead and delete it, and then start over. An edit functionality would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We use polly and surveymonkey for different things because they have different strengths. Polly is great for short informal surveys/questions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using polly for short informal surveys to gauge employee interest in various initiatives, like snack preferences or what book to read for a book club. Integration with slack means our developers don't have to click out of anything. Small time saver but makes a big difference in participation.

"Polly is a great tool for short polls that need answers quick!"

What do you like best?

I like that Polly makes it easier to get answers to questions from the team easily through Slack. I use it all the time for work related tasks as well as silly polls in the office. Slack is already a great tool but using Polly with it really makes it that much better.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Polly is hard to create when you don't create it on the internet browser. I don't like creating it in the app because I'm worried about sending it incorrectly! But if you do it online, it is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a way to communicate with your team in an easy to use poll, then Polly should be your choice with Slack!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of getting people to reply to things. Polly lets people quick vote for things and it saves us a ton of time instead of emailing people individually.

What Productivity Bots solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent, intuitive polling software with lots of options "

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the different number of options that the software provides to allow you to make all of the polls imaginable, and how it is very easy to post these polls on Slack

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to edit polls once posted, and many times I've found myself having to completely rebuild a poll after finding a small error.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Double check and triple check the polls you post! A single error will make you have to remake the entire poll!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy polling, plain and simple! Things like deciding things for our lab, picking dates, etc.

"Easy to use app for simple, streamlined polling"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to do both anonymous and non-anonymous reviews. The ability to send the poll via direct message also comes in handy for polls that cross group channels. Scheduling of polls also helps with time management.

What do you dislike?

Would like an option to make more dynamic polls - like slider bars or ranking options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is really only for simple use cases - you're not going to reinvent the wheel or get a lot of complex problems solved here, but it's easy, quick, and fun.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Avoiding email when quick responses to simple questions are needed. Keeps inboxes more streamlined and allows more people quick input on questions.

I recommend Polly to others, it is extremely simple and meets the needs of a Slack user.

"Polly for group lunches"

What do you like best?

I like the new UX where I can see all of the polls I have ever done.

What do you dislike?

I wish that I could create a poll within slack, instead of having to do to it in an external browser.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would use it for smaller polls, not large form like needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I poll people for how they liked lunch after each company catered meal, to decide where we are going to eat, and for silly things like "should x wear a unicorn onsie to work."
