Absorb Engage: Polls



With the Absorb Engage upgrade, you can tap into valuable Learner feedback by using the Poll feature. Polls are open-ended, allowing you to create any question type as well as designing the queries to solicit fact-based, opinion-based, or choice-based responses.

Once a Poll is published, administrators can monitor results over time and use the data as needed to pivot deliverables.
