You can add a Quick poll to your Office email. The recipient will be able to click a link, or vote directly from the email based on the device. Your results will be found in Forms within Office 365.
Many times you are looking for quick feedback from a group of people. Getting individual emails back from each recipient is cumbersome and irritating. You can quickly add a poll question to your email and all the responses are collected in an Office Form.
From your email, select the ellipses at the bottom of the window next to the formatting button and choose Poll.
A window will display on the right side of the screen. Fill in your poll question and answer choices. Add more options if you need it, and turn on Multiple Answers if appropriate. Then select Next.
Review your poll question. When you are ready, select Add to Email. Add your recipients and whatever additional information you need to the email and send.
The recipient will either be able to respond to the poll question directly in the email, or they will be provided a link to vote from. This option depends on the device and email provider they are using.
Once they vote, the recipient will be able to see the results of the poll.
To view the results of your poll, visit Office Forms and select the poll in question.
When the poll opens, select View Results. Your results will then display.
