How to create polls on WhatsApp and add them to your groups

If you want your WhatsApp groups to be fair, it is best that all members vote through polls. So you can make them and add them to your groups.

WhatsApp has been put the batteries in recent months and it has added very interesting functions for users, such as a tool to make freeing space in the app even easier.

However, if we compare WhatsApp with Telegram, there are still things that we miss, such as the possibility of conducting group surveys. In 2020, while Telegram has added three new types of surveys, WhatsApp has not even been raised apparently introducing this function.

That does not mean that you cannot do surveys on WhatsApp, just that you have to resort to external applications and websites for it. And we will do so in this article to show you how to create polls in WhatsApp and add them to your groups.

The website we have chosen is Chat With, which has a specific tool for conducting surveys on WhatsApp. Step by step, we explain how to use this website to democratize your groups of the social platform.

WhatsApp surveys

Take surveys on WhatsApp to find out the opinion of all the members of the group.

Create and fill out the survey on the web

The first step you must take to create your own WhatsApp survey is access the Whatsapp Polls web from Chat With. You do not need to do it from your PC, it is a page adapted for mobile phones and you can use it with your mobile without problems.

After entering the page, fill in the different sections that make up the survey one by one. First of all, in “Ask a question” you must introduce the question who will star in the survey. Then, in the "Options" section, write the different options from which the group members can choose.

Finally, in "Poll Duration", select time duration of the survey, you can choose the days, hours and minutes of the survey. Before finalizing, review the survey to confirm that all the data is correct.

Fill out WhatsApp survey

Fill in the different sections of your survey for WhatsApp.

Add the survey to your group

Once the survey is created, it is time to add it to the WhatsApp group so that its members can participate in the democratic process.

To do this, click on the green button that appears at the end of the survey, where you will read “Save and share with WhatsApp”. Then you will have to choose between share survey next to options ("Share the poll along with choices") or share only the link of the poll (“Share only the poll link”).

The most recommended option is the first, since the members of the group will be able to vote directly from the WhatsApp conversation. To finally add it, click on the green button "Share to WhatsApp" and, in the app, select the group in which you want to share it.

Share WhatsApp survey

Choose if you want to share the surveys with the options or only their link.

Vote and view the survey results

You have already created and added the survey to the WhatsApp group for which you designed it, it is time for everyone users give their opinion choosing between the different options.

If you have shared the survey with the options included, users will only have to click on the link that appears below the chosen option. If you have only shared the survey link, users will have to click on it and vote directly from the web page.

The interesting thing about surveys is to know the result, and so you can do it with the one you have created in Chat With. Click on the survey link to see how many votes each option has received, which is the one that is winning and how much time remains until the poll ends.

To expand the scope of the survey, copy the link of the survey and share it with other people through WhatsApp. Once the time you have established is over, you will be able to know the final result of the survey and carry out what has been decided in it.

At the moment, WhatsApp does not consider integrating a function to carry out surveys, but there are other alternatives such as the one explained in this article that are easy to use and, as you can see, very useful to know the opinion of the members of a group. Have you already decided what you are going to use these surveys for in your WhatsApp groups?
