Add a poll Task

You’ll need the Gravity Forms and Gravity Forms Polls plugins to use these instructions.

Create a poll

In Forms, add a new form and give it a title.

On the Advanced panel in the right hand column, choose Poll. This will insert the basic poll field into the form.

Click on the basic form to open the options and add your poll question and possible answers.

Poll questions and answers

Save the form.

Choose the Form Settings option and complete each of the four tabs:

  • Form settings – basics
  • Confirmations – onscreen message after vote or ping to another page
  • Notifications – emails to admins
  • Polls – options for blocking multiple votes

Then save the form again.

To add the poll into a widget area, use Appearance, Widgets, and drag the Polls widget into a widget area. You can choose your poll from the options.
