Polls in Slack

Where to go for your team-building day? How do people travel to the office in the morning? And most importantly, should you order tacos, pizza, or sushi for lunch? Reactions, reminders, and some handy apps can help you gather information or make group decisions.

Take a poll with emoji reactions

Emoji reactions are great for taking a super-quick poll. Pop your question into a channel and ask members to respond with an appropriate emoji. 

Recurring polls: use reminders

If you need to take a poll on a regular basis, setting a recurring reminder in a channel could be just the thing for you. Use the /remind command to set the reminder from anywhere in Slack.


Try a polling app

If you’d like to add a polling app to your workspace, try searching for polls or votes in Slack’s App Directory. With many of these apps, you can create new polls by entering a simple /poll slash command.
