A poll consists of a number of questions, each offering a list of answers. A poll is open for voting either to the member group of a workspace, in which it was created, or to the general public. Voting is limited to the voting period of the poll. Poll results may be viewed in graphical form during and after the voting period; results may also be exported for further processing.
A voting differs from a poll only in two respects: (a) votes are personal and not anonymous, i.e. each participant can see how the others have voted, and (b) the participants of a voting may be arbitrary persons identified by their user name or e-mail address, i.e. participants are not restricted to the member group of the workspace that contains the voting.
