"Get better solutions to problems"

What do you like best?

Polls help immensely in coming to a decision. The feature is free to add and all it takes is a few clicks for the Simple Poll to get added to your Slack work space. Anyone can then use it in your group to make polls and its very easy to use once you get the hang of it

What do you dislike?

Getting used to how to make polls is a bit difficult at start but can help easily in your Slack group.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, I would recoommend this to people who are already using Slack. A wonderful feature and is extremely helpful

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

Being the Head of Operations at a Research firms, there are a lot of decisions which I have to make and forego others. Polls help me in making a better decision. By just adding a poll on my Slack Group, I am able to get better answers for my question. In this way, we can even discuss all the possible options to a problem and come to a better and conclusive decision agreed by all.

"Simple Poll is just that- a simple system for taking polls"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use- if we want to put a poll on Slack, all we have to do is type in /poll on the channel we want the poll on, and type in the information. You can also edit, and see the results in a second. Also, you can see who voted for what, in case that is needed.

What do you dislike?

Because of the layout, it can be confusing if the multiple choice results are numbers, since they are numbered. Then you end up with a lot of numbers on your results. For example, it might look like this:

How many pizzas should we order?

1. 1

2. 3

3. 5

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say steer clear from multiple choice options that are numbers. Because there are so many numbers listed in the platform, it can get really confusing for the people taking the poll. If you do use numbers, spell them out and use a unit (i.e, five pizzas, instead of "5").

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

We are able to quickly get answers without needing excessive feedback from the entire team. We used it to determine which other apps were "working" for our team on Slack, and everyone felt good about it because it's relatively non-confrontational and quick.

"Easy and quick to use poll"

What do you like best?

The simple poll bot allows for you to easily create a poll and ask a question in a group chat, channel, or DM. You can add several options and see exactly who has voted for what option. Once you are done with the poll, you can easily delete it to keep your Slack channel free from clutter.

What do you dislike?

The UI isn't the nicest, but that is just aesthetics. The bigger problem for me, is that I can not limit people to select only one option from the poll. I wish I could state if this was a multiple choice or a single choice poll. I haven't been able to create an option with multiple words for a choice. I wish there was an option to see the results of the poll without showing any of the users the results of the poll for a more honest poll when it comes to a sensitive topic. I additionally wish that I could edit a poll or add additional options to the poll which at this time are not supported.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a lightweight polling integration into Slack I would suggest using this. It is good for check ups and that is about it.

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

I can quickly get a pulse on my team's needs and see where we stand. If I am worried about getting an honest response, I can also set the poll to be anonymous.

"A for functionality "

What do you like best?

the ability to poll a group of people. for some reason slack didn't think to have this feature built in naturally.

What do you dislike?

the way the results are displayed are legible but one has to read passed unnecessary info to get to the meat of the results.

we live in an age of finding the most efficient solution. i've see teammates use slack reaction emojis as tallies to count votes. this is your competitor in my opinion. a simple / easy to visualize tally system. that's what simple poll needs to be more like, simpler.

Recommendations to others considering the product

take the time to learn how to set up the questions and answers properly

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

it's a way to gather huge amounts of people into agreeing on 1 solution.

"Simple, clean and needed "

What do you like best?

Easy and visually clean app that allows for quick responses from the group.

What do you dislike?

There is a strange aspect of the app where the person who runs the poll is shown as answering all of the questions at the same time. To illustrate this -- let's say I run the poll for whether we should have pizza or subs for lunch. My group will see that I voted for both immediately. This is strange.

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

Quick, easy responses for office questions that don't need an in-depth answer. Don't use this to ask "what can our office do better?" but use it for something fun or simple like asking what music the radio should be turned to after the current playlist.

"Extremely easy to use quick poll for team members"

What do you like best?

I like that this is a completely customized poll feature that as a stand alone feature or as a feature that is embedded in a communication chain. I like that you can add as many responses as you like and if you have the Slack dashboard, you will see responses as soon as they are submitted.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how the feature may get "lost" in a long communication chain. This is really meant for a quick poll with quick responses and for the synthesis to come immediately after.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend encouraging your work groups to download Slack dashboard so that when you create a poll, others will see it and hopefully respond to it quickly. This is a great way to get instant results, that they team may see and act upon. I enjoy the custom feature of creating a survey that takes seconds! Do try to get use the results quickly, as the survey may get "lost" in a long communication chain.

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

I am able to create a poll without using a feature outside of Slack, which is incredibly useful when you're in a pinch for time. I am able to construct a survey in seconds, and if my group is logged in, and respond quickly, this is really the fastest way to collect data from a poll.

"Easy to use polling with great functionality"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to create a poll and outline response options and what they mean. There is a little bit of memorizing the format that you have to do, but the format and the commands are very intuitive. It's very fast to participate in the poll, and the app is easy to use for both admins and users.

What do you dislike?

If you're doing an easy poll where you're looking for a majority vote - this is perfect. If you're polling colleagues, and it's important to you that you hear from everyone - the names are too small, and it's just as hard to keep track who responded and who didn't as if you were asking the question and keeping track of answers via other means.

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

Finding a time/place to meet or a topic to discuss; simple yes/no questions with regards to receipts of various things (newsletters, mail, etc.) or tasks completed (e.g. securing a conference registration); learning about others' opinions (you can even create anonymous polls);

"Make your own polls with added quirks!"

What do you like best?

In general, we enjoy slack because you can customize it to make it seem more like your team. Like, if you look at ours, you'll notice right away that we're an office of weirdos haha.

But with this specific add-on, I like that you can make the polling options fun emojis. Like when we are voting for a place for lunch, your options can be the ramen emoji (for ramen), sushi emoji (for sushi), or burrito (for Mexican).

What do you dislike?

Maybe we just aren't using it right, but I wish you were able to limit the amount of votes you can have. Like for us, some people will select multiple options. I also wish we could see it more as a bar, rather than just showing us the number of votes an option got. I like the emoji option, but I'd like to option to show different visualization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I said this in an earlier comment, but different poll options and visualizations would help it be more flexible for the end user.

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

Well, choosing lunch spots every Wednesday has gotten easier! Though, we do still end up arguing about it haha.

"Polls, but not so simple"

What do you like best?

This bot is fully integrated into Slack, so it is possible to launch polls easily.

A command-line system allows to create a poll and add answers to it.

Users can reply to the poll by selecting one of the answers you provided. There's virtually no limit to the polls that can be added.

What do you dislike?

Need to remember how to open new polls. Not easy to change poll answers when the poll has already been started. Not so easy to find the poll when other messages flood the channel, unless it has been pinned.

Not easy to retrieve different polls launched in the past.

So in a few words, the biggest issue about Simple poll is its lack of features: it's way too simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to launch simple (very simple) polls across your team, it's ok.

Moreover, it's free so it could be definitely a good choice.

Otherwise, if you have more complex poll needs, you should consider adhoc tools such as polls.io, Easypolls, Surveymonkey, Google Forms, Doodle, etc.

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

Receive rapid feedback from the team about a proposal.

"The name says it all!"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of this bot is awesome. Use the same simple format each time you wish to take a poll. Voting is easy, and you can see your results with a glance.

What do you dislike?

If your poll involves numbers, it can be tricky, since they list your poll options by number instead of bullet points. If your options include zero as an option, you can have a scenario where you click 1 to vote for zero, click 2 to vote for one, etc. That can be misleading, and led to some confusion once where we had to redo the survey.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want quick and easy, this is the way to go. We've not used it for the most complex of surveys, but what we have used it for, has been perfect.

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

It's been great for getting consensus for simple things like who wants what for breakfast, to more complex things like feature development selection.

"What's great about Simple Poll"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to quickly poll a large number of people within our organization on any topic .

What do you dislike?

Simple Poll is, as hinted at in the name, a tool for making simple polls. Perhaps there could be more features around displaying the results or allowing for different types of questions, but I honestly don't view this as a serious problem given the tool's intended use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple Poll is a great way to quickly draw out answers to a question from members of your organization (or externally through shared channels). I would definitely recommend others try out Simple Poll.

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

We use Simple Poll at work to vote on all sorts of things such as what day should we have off one month, what problems employees see with a particular service we offer, or who has the best king cake (we're located in New Orleans).

"Quick and Easy for the Busy Office"

What do you like best?

I like being able to read something and respond quickly by selecting a number (or more if applicable). It's not too complex to set up either.

What do you dislike?

In Slack, it does take up a good amount of space in the channel. It can also move pretty far up if people keep talking about it or move onto other things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an alternative to using Google's forms. I'm not sure if you can be anonymous with Simple Poll, but it's something to keep in mind.

One more thing: have the poll in a popular channel that doesn't get used too much. Something like #random is a terrible place to put it.

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

General polling when finding out what a large group would prefer for public knowledge. We've used it for lunch decisions, popular content areas, and even what sort of features we should focus on for next quarter.

"Need input & Slack's your main comm. tool? Look no further."

What do you like best?

We just started using this in Slack recently and it's already proven helpful. In coordinating office events, it can be difficult to choose the best day for as many people as possible. This helped us pick when to have an office event. It took a few seconds to provide input and was easy for the person in charge to set it up.

What do you dislike?

Right now there doesn't seem to be a downside. I'm excited to use it more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This can be easier than using a google form for quick answers that don't need to be anonymous. The team was able use it and make a decision based on the results in a matter of minutes for us (we're quick responders!).

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

So far it's been useful in selecting a day for a company wide event, especially during a busy season.

"Exactly what it says on the tin"

What do you like best?

It's the easiest thing to use, kinda hard to forget how to use it.

What do you dislike?

I kinda wish that it was "prettier"? I dunno like, make the polls look more like a designed div than essentially text with emojis. Honestly, I don't even dislike that enough to call it a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it! I'm using it as a Slack integration. You can always uninstall it later.

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

Although we don't use it very often, we do use it for semi-serious and silly polls, like "which version of this design works best?" or "which made-up word describes how you feel right now?"

"Good for very simple polls, other bots provide more functionality"

What do you like best?

With a few, simple commands on Slack, anyone is able to set up and send very simple polls to whoever.

What do you dislike?

For what I use it for, it is very functional! It's not easy to have it do very complicated things like other polling bots.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not much! Good to set up if you need to make some, as the name of the bot suggests, simple polls. Good at it's limited role.

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

Simple polls that we need to do, such as "should we cancel this meeting", or "should we go get lunch?". Very easy to make things such as this.

"Exactly What it Purports to Be"

What do you like best?

I love the idea of using reactions to count as votes on a post, and Simple Poll does a great job making a post for that purpose quick.

What do you dislike?

The app can be fussy. For example, I just barely wrote a poll with options "Yes" "No" and "Can't Tell"--and Simple Poll broke out "Can't" and "Tell" into two separate options. I checked--it wasn't a glitch of the single quote, but rather, if you forget quote marks around the question. I suppose, like most Slack integrations, it requires very specific syntax.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I prefer Simple Poll to Polly.

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

Quick polling of employees in Slack (e.g. which activity would you like to do for our retreat? What snack would you like for the office to bring in on Friday? What are the most difficult phone calls to process?)

"Very simple, but it just works."

What do you like best?

It's incredibly intuitive, and pretty easy to utilize. Most users are able to figure out the interface and user options fairly quickly.

What do you dislike?

It's a simple poll. That said, in cases where you may want to utilize advanced poll features, you may find it lacking somewhat. For instance, users can multi-select responses and you can't limit that. Additionally it fills a large portion of the screen.

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

The ability to anonymously poll a channel is fantastic and has helped us gained insights very quickly from a large number of people, without formalizing survey monkey or other external tools.

"Great Resource"

What do you like best?

I like having an easy way to take a pole within slack without having to send out a link to an external website. In the past, I would use a website to gather poll information, but since I already use slack in my workplace, implementing simple poll was easy and eliminated an extra step for those filling out the poll. I also like how easy it is to see the responses right in my slack account, which is probably already pulled up anyways!

What do you dislike?

I don't think there is anything I dislike!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I love Simple Poll. If you're already using Slack, it's a no brainer!

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

People are a lot more likely to take a pole when it's right in slack, so it's great to have more people answering so we get more accurate information.

"Great for simple opinion collections but not for anything complex "

What do you like best?

When you want to ask you team to choose between a few options and not receive a million suggestions , simple pole is perfect. It is great for simple direct answers with one variable.

What do you dislike?

When trying to do more that one variable or place and time vs just time , the pole does not work well which result in people writing their preference instead of clicking the option they want.

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

It speeds up the decision making process for simple decisions and allows in app vote count so results are in real-time.

"Simple polling integration for Slack "

What do you like best?

Easy way to get feedback pretty quickly without much effort. When working in teams get an immediate response to a poll. Quick to send out with a full Slack integration. Also, use for customer feedback, etc.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything to dislike. This bot is not complicated to use. Simply type /poll and the formula needed to set up a poll quickly displays. Very easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use polling software to get instant feedback, The integration with Slack makes this a no brainer to use.

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

Get instant feedback from coworkers, partners, or customers. Can be used to make decisions without utilizing a formal process of gathering the necessary opinions. Also, polling can reduce the need for qualitative input.

"SimplePoll is great. I'm trying to keep my headline simple."

What do you like best?

There aren't too many bells and whistles with SimplePoll, which is exactly what I'm looking for. I don't need a tremendous amount of other functionality. It has let us create "SimplePolls," but with live results populating in my Slack field. Not every poll plug-in has that, which is surprising.

What do you dislike?

I wish I had more use for a plug-in like this, but I just don't conduct polls too often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't expect a revolutionary product. It provides polls.

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

Often, I'm resolving issues that are pertaining to very low level issues (i.e. where do we want to go to lunch, what should the end of week activities be, etc.). They are issues dealing more with morale versus productivity.

"A very simple poll that lives up to its name"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to create polls, and how simple it is to participate. I also like that it's available within the Slack app, without having to go to an external page.

What do you dislike?

It's possible that this is an option that I missed, but people are allowed to vote multiple times on these polls. Ideally, there would be an option to allow people to only vote once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This works well as a very basic option, but more advanced polls may require more advanced software.

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

It has helped our company make quick, simple decisions on the spot. This has offered a simpler and faster alternative to creating a Survey Monkey survey or something similar.

"simple yet effective"

What do you like best?

this is a good tool for anyone who regularly uses slackr and wants to quick survey. you can ask yes/no questions or customize your own responses; it formats it into an "emoji" looking survey which adds a nice touch. very basic selection but it does what it needs to do

What do you dislike?

slackr uses a "coding" like integration so to add a new poll you must use the /poll command and follow their protocol. for example you must use specific parenthesis or quotations or else the program will not recognize your survey. this is fine for someone used to coding or typing but could be a bit tedious for someone who is not familiar with the language format

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this for a quick and simple polling tool. nothing too complex but is efficient to get answers quickly in terms of numbers of responses. good for quantitive data rather than qualitative

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

solves quick questions such as if people are available to meet today or if people have completed their tasks for the day or what do you want to order for lunch. it can really be used as a tool to get any simple choice data from colleagues

10 option limit is a bit limiting sometimes, would also like to see better reporting or be able to kill the poll after a certain point.

"The name says it all... Simple Poll"

What do you like best?

Dead simple to use, for on the fly polls of my team that only involve a few straight-forwards questions.

What do you dislike?

I haven't run across anything in this dead simple Slack app / bot that I don't like. It literally does exactly what we need it to, and quickly!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It doesn't take the place of a real survey tool, it does fill a need to VERY quickly poll your team on a multiple choice question. My team uses it mostly for meeting spaces and lunch / activities, but our design team uses it for on the fly opinions for UX/design, which is brilliant.

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

For my team, I don't think 'simple poll' was as much of a solution to a problem, as it was a simple way to streamlining slacks back and for on questions. For other working groups, it was more of a solution, like for the Design/UX team. They put out quick polls on simple feature sets, and get instant answers - no focus groups, no tracking data, etc.

"Easy way to take a poll"

What do you like best?

Simple Poll makes it quick and easy to take a poll and see what people think on a subject within Slack. It makes communication more efficient than having meetings or individual conversations, or even having to dig through multiple slack answers or conversations, so decisions can be made more quickly.

What do you dislike?

The only dislike I can come up with is there aren't any formatting options

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would consider Simple Poll if you're looking for an efficient way to get the opinions of a large group, especially if that group is spread out over multiple locations.

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

It allows for more efficient communication and decision making within/for a team.

"Making lunch decisions with your co-workers much easier."

What do you like best?

It's incredibly simple and relevant. I can't tell you how many times we go back and forth regarding where we're going for lunch. Using simple poll makes deciding much easier. From serious yes or no polls to just goofing around, it's effective.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular, but I think the only downside to simple poll is it's sometimes easier just to suggest or ask what you're wondering.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No recommendations needed. It's very simple to set up and to use and it's a fun way of crowd sourcing.

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

Office polls of simple "Yes" or "No", but I wouldn't say we're necessarily solving business problems with the add-on.

What do you like best?

The easiness of being able to run a poll in Slack makes life tremendously easier. Seeing the results as they come in and immediate feedback makes it easier to get things rolling.

What do you like best?

Easy to implement, super simple to use, easy to see results

What do you dislike?

When you first create a poll, and the options are listed out, users always want to click on the number icons there, instead of the buttons below. Simple UI design flaw but just a little annoying

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

Saves time in making small day to day decisions

Polls aren't anonymous (but there might be a setting to change that?)

Great way to get consensus on company event dates/ideas!

"Simple and Easy"

What do you like best?

Quite simple and easy to use via Slack command, I don't use it very often, but when I needed it, it's much easier than typing a form to collect feedbacks from team. The new button option is a nice touch.

What do you dislike?

Would be nice that other users have the ability to add more choices to the poll.

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

Easy to collect feedbacks from team, but it's still mainly for less important things like "where should we go for a drink", "what date we should have the party" ...

"Simple and easy"

What do you like best?

it's very easy to create i think anyone can do it. i was able to set it up by myself and i am not tech-savvy. it's easy to use in slack when you want to see a general consensus about your co-workers and peers

What do you dislike?

it's almost toooo simple and sometimes i need more complex answers (open-ended). it's more of like a friend to friend thing that you can post on facebook or other social media.

Recommendations to others considering the product

just for simple ideas

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

i am able to create internal polls for my coworkers for easy things like catering and lunches. we only use it in house but are thinking of using it in our marketing emails to see what our clients want to see more of/less of.

"Great for quick polls"

What do you like best?

Simple Poll is relatively easy to set up, and provides a good quick look to any simple questions you may have. We have used it to gain insight into what kind of events we should hold and what opinions people may have on certain things.

What do you dislike?

The way Simple Poll displays can be kind of confusing.

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

Simple Poll makes it easy for us to do a quick, no-nonsense poll on a platform where it will be seen by the majority of our employees.

"Quick & Convenient Survey for Slack"

What do you like best?

It's a super quick and easy way to make decisions and see what the team wants to do.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat confusing when trying to set up multiple answers/options

Recommendations to others considering the product

If all you need is a simple polling solution, this will do it! Will not work for advanced options or those who need to constantly edit/modify polls. Slightly annoying that polls cannot be modified after they are created. This leads to having to create new polls every time anything changes.

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

Tallying up results for who wants to do what, like where to eat. It makes it easier to figure out what to do when planning events or other activities that require making a decision on where to go.

If you want something simple to poll your Slack teams with, Simple Poll gets the job done.

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

We'll use this for quick meeting voting or for fun things like where to go for lunch or who will win the game this weekend.

"Simple and Effective"

What do you like best?

It helps count office opinions and eases the burden of making a decision for the whole team. From business decisions to what we're ordering for lunch.

What do you dislike?

It's accessibility can make for too many joke-y polls that clog up the feed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very flexible regardless of your needs.

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

Some business decisions are easily made through the poll tool when gathering stakeholders for a meeting proves to be too difficult.

"Simple Poll Review"

What do you like best?

It's a very handy way to get quick answers for your team about group projects, meetings, etc.

What do you dislike?

It does this funky thing where it automatically puts one person as the answer to all of the options, which throws the count off a little and is confusing for the person that it chooses to auto-populate with.

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

We use it to quickly determine next steps and solve stalemates.

"Good for what it does, but could be better"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use and create polls. Slim interface helps with this

What do you dislike?

Editing polls is cumbersome. Being able to change data easier would be much better than the web interface. SHould be able to edit/move a poll right from slack interface

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

We use Simple Poll for multiple aspects, whether it's a social event, or a potential change in configuration or environment

"Solid polling software"

What do you like best?

Has a nice sleek look for displaying results. Is functional and not too difficult to figure out. It allows people who are already residing in the solution to provide feedback.

What do you dislike?

No frills, doesn't allow for deeper analysis of results. Otherwise, it seems more functional and utilitarian.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Works fine and is a nice plugin from the Slack ecosystem. Easier to implement this than go outside and find polling software to integrate.

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

A quick solution for compiling poll data for initiatives and ideas. Able to capitalize on existing Slack traffic since everyone in the company is already there.

"Simple polling tool"

What do you like best?

The app is really simple to use and there isn't really much to it. If you are already using Slack, this is a great tool to use with your co-workers to make simple decisions such as, "where to go to lunch". It's not the best tool if you need to poll and get feedback.

What do you dislike?

This is a REALLY simple polling app and I wouldn't expect any sophisticated if you want to do ranks, etc.

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

When a quick decision needs to be made, this has been great way to get multiple stakeholders involved.

"simple, easy & quick to set up!"

What do you dislike?

nothing jumps out as an obvious dislike. One issue is if you delete the slack poll, you can't close the survey to start a new one in the same channel

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

super quick polling that gets better traction/participation in my org vs a google form.

"Simple Poll is just that... Simple. "

What do you like best?

Simple Poll makes it easy to take a quick survey. Rather than counting up each vote from each slack message, Simple Poll gathers the information for you.

What do you dislike?

It is pretty hard to dislike something that is so simple to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very easy to use and user friendly!

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

It is rather hard to get your peers to answer a simple email but when you and your colleges are constantly on Slack, it's just easier to get answers through a chat room than waiting for people to check their inbox.

"Simple pole lives up to it's name"

What do you like best?

It's super easy to quickly have people vote on something.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little clunky and there's no preview mode. I make polls in my own channel first to test them out before posting to a group.

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

Ability to quickly have people vote on something rather than having to send an email and aggregate data. Easy for yes/no questions or when there's only several options and you need a response from the whole team. We use it mostly for logistical things.

What do you like best?

Easy way to crowdsource amongst coworkers. Can be used for fun and for more important info gathering.

It all depends on how you use it. Sometimes it can get excessive - but I think that is more depending on how coworkers use it, not the product itself.
