From this screen you can select which side you would like your new content to show on and in what order.
Next you will click on Add a Survey Question.
The Title can be anything you want to identify it. It will only be visible by you.
Survey Question is the question you would like to ask.
Then you have your choice for how they select their answer. A radio button (looks just like the choices you are choosing from), a checkbox, or a drop down list.
Do you want everyone to be able to view the results? If you choose yes, they will be taken to a result screen in the poll box after they vote. If you choose no, they will be taken to the next poll question. View the tip for Survey Results to learn how to view your survey results.
Next you will put in your answer choices. Click on Add An Answer. You will get a text box. Put one answer here for them to choose. Continue to click on Add An Answer and put the answer in for as many as you would like.
Click on Save.
