Best practices and tips for creating a slack poll:

  1. Focus on the audience – verify you are asking a question that is appealing and relevant for the audience you share it with
  2. Keep it short – keep the question and answers short so it is easy to quickly comprehend the poll and participate
  3. Use images – adding an appealing image to the poll will improve the engagement rate dramatically
  4. Select answers carefully – see that the answers cover all the options and if not offer users to suggest their own answer. Verify there is no overlap between answers.
