How To Make a Poll Using Jotform

September 1, 2022

When creating polling forms, it is a plus for users to see the overall results after they have submitted their entries. There are a few ways to do this, all of which involve showing a chart on the Thank You page of your form.

So go ahead and create your form, then follow the steps below to show your poll results on the Thank You page.

For the poll result page, you could either use Visual Report or JotPoll.
