How do I create a survey (free-text poll)?

You can use Doodle to create polls that are schedule-based or based on any free text choices you would like. Surveys (also known as free-text polls) are easy to set up. Find them on the homepage or in the dashboard. Finally, you can do so directly at

Homepage: Section about simple surveys

Set the survey up in 4 easy steps: 

1. Enter a title and any other additional information you would like in the first step of the poll setup


2. In the second step, you can add multiple text options for your poll


3. In the third step you can enable special poll settings 


4. If you are logged into your Doodle account, you can skip step 4. If you are not, you can tell your participants who you are (name and email address) 


It's as easy as that. You can then share the poll by email or by sharing the poll link.
