Setup Polls and Thoughts

This page demonstrates two functionalities: Create Polls and Setup Thoughts. The step by step instructions are demonstrated to explain each of them.

Note: In Free payroll, the Settings section does not have the feature to create poll or setup thought. Upgrade to a paid version to avail these features.

Create Polls

Creation of polls allow HR or the leadership to get feedback from employees. Capture different kinds of inputs from employees on a daily basis such as the service of the new coffee vendor, the ease of use of the new HR System and so on. Polls are visible on the poll widget on the home page of the application. 

Note: While you can create multiple polls, but only 1 can remain active at any given time. Each poll can be associated with multiple choices and you can run a report to view the response of employees. Analysis of polls helps to understand what your employees want and can help engage them on a constant basis.

To setup a poll, you need to:

1. Log into the system as an HR manager.

2. Go to Settings page and scroll down to Employee Portal Setup. Click Manage polls as shown in Figure 1.
