You're now able to send recurring surveys! 🥳

The ability to schedule surveys to be sent automatically on a recurring basis has been a much requested feature — for good reason! There's SO much value in hearing from the team on a consistent basis and providing them an opportunity to regularly contribute with ideas or questions.

We've now made it easy to set your survey up once and have it sent out automatically daily, weekly, or monthly!

In Simple Poll, surveys are different from polls in two key ways:

  • Surveys are sent via direct message — That makes them a bit more private than polls
  • Surveys are multi-question — That lets the team respond to several questions in one go

This means surveys are perfect for more open-ended questions, gathering richer feedback, and giving the team more of a voice.

And now you can get the powers of surveys delivered on a regular cadence using recurring surveys!

Recurring surveys are excellent for:

  • Collecting feedback or ideas from your team on an ongoing basis
  • Regularly getting a sense for how your team is feeling
  • Having meeting participants contribute topics or questions ahead of recurring meetings
  • Getting feedback and a better understanding of how people perceive the content or format of your meetings
