The new Poll Experience is here! See below for the new setup guide and changes.
From the Campaigns page, select the template type – Landing Pages.
Next, you will need to select the type of Poll that you would like. You can choose the “blank” Poll, or one of the pre-designed templates (don’t worry, you can still edit and customize these templates).
Followed by adding the title for the Poll:
You’ll be taken to the Overview tab to choose the general settings of your poll.
Start by clicking the Edit button above the “Status” area to adjust the experience’s start and end dates and times (times reflect your local time-zone).
When you’re ready, you can also Publish the experience (turn off Admin-Only mode) here.
Also in the Overview section is Sharing. Click the edit button to customize the shared title, description, and/or image. *This will apply to Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere that recognizes open graph share dialog.
When you’re ready, you can use the Installation section to preview the experience, install it to Facebook, or get the embed code.
Once your Poll has received votes/entries, you can return to the Overview page to view the progress. You can also click the View Votes button to view the entries and collected data (you can also export from that page).
In the Design section, you can you can add backgrounds, images, videos, and customize the campaign’s form and share dialogue. For tips and tricks on using the Customize section, check out our blog site.

Click the element:Then click Settings:
You can switch between the pages you are customizing from the left navigation menu.
If your experience is configured to start in the future, all users that visit the URL will be directed to the Pre-Start Page. Most admins use the default, “Please check back later. The promotion you are trying to access hasn’t started yet”, because often times campaigns are not promoted until they are ready to accept entries, so users generally never see the Pre-Start Page.
When you Enable the Fan-Gate, you can ask users to first like your Facebook Business Page before they enter the promotion (due to Facebook’s platform policies, you cannot require or incentivize this action).
By clicking Elements in the left navigation of the Design section, you can add images, videos, text, or even design creative with the Canvas element.
By default, Polls start with no form element (Formless-submit). If you would like to collect data from entrants, add the Form element here.
You can add an image element to upload your creative content to the Entry Page.
*Notice the “Now Editing: Version 1” in the upper right corner. Versions gives you the ability to upload and schedule different images in the same image element.
Customizing the Form Fields
While in the Design section, click on the Form Fields element itself to add or edit form fields.
Click “Add Form Field” in the menu on the left to add text fields, drop-downs, radio buttons, check-boxes, and social media follow buttons.
Once a user has successfully entered, they will be directed to the Post Entry page. The Post Entry Page acts as confirmation that the user has successfully entered.
You can customize the share options by clicking on the Share Element.
In the Settings tab, you can edit entry and age restrictions, password-protect the experience, customize the language, add rules, and more.
Click “Voting limits” in the Limits & Restrictions section to enable and choose entry restrictions (the number of times a user can enter).
Clicking “Custom Rules” in the Customizations section will allow you to type/paste in your rules, or add a URL to the site where your rules are hosted.
The Advanced section allows you to add your Google Analytics or Facebook tracking pixels, enable Kiosk-mode, and setup real-time data exports.
At the bottom of the Settings section, you can Reset, Copy, or Delete your Poll.
