How to Use Poll Bot on Discord

Discord is one of the most popular online gaming communities. It hosts a ton of active users who communicate with group messaging servers created for virtually any topic. 

As Discord has widened its span of users, new Discord bots have become more frequent. These artificial intelligence tools work to serve tasks and add functions to a server.

There are plenty of helpful and popular bots on Discord, such as Toll Bot, Probot, Rythm Bot, Carl Bot, Groovy Bot, Dyno Bot, Mee6 Bot, or OwO Bot. Some of these bots can be found on the Discord app and Discord browser, and others you can integrate with your channel online.

If you have never used or heard of Discord bots before, they might sound hard to use. While some of them are more complicated, Poll Bot is not. Let’s go through how to use Poll Bot on Discord.

How to Use Poll Bot on Discord – Step by Step

Poll Bot is one of Discord’s most reliable and frequently used polling bots, with a server count of 131,000. Its tools make it simple to gather server-related feedback in real-time.

Poll Bot is for creating polls using reaction, multi-reaction, and Strawpolls. Whether using the Discord app or Discord browser, using Poll Bot is easy and only takes a few minutes to understand. If you have not yet, you can go to Discord.com or Discordapp.com to create your account first.

Navigate to Top.GG. You can use Top.GG to find all the latest bots, helpful information, and comments shared by other Discord online users.

In the search bar, enter “Poll Bot.” Click the Invite button. A box will appear to sign in to Discord and select the server you want to add.

Next, open your Discord browser and select the server where your bot was authorized. Choose a channel to enter your poll. If you like, you can also create a new channel just for your polls. Choose a channel to enter your poll. If you like, you can also create a new channel just for your polls.

You can do this by starting a channel with a name such as “Poll-Channel,” and adjusting the settings so that only you can make polls and leave replies, but others can still vote on making polls. 

Select Permissions and tag “@everyone” in the box below Roles/Members. Select “Yes” only to “Read Messages” and “Add Reactions.” This way, your polls will be easy for everyone to find and will not get buried by other comments. 

How to Create a Yes/No Reaction Poll

“+” is the prefix used for Poll Bot polls. To start, type “+poll,” and then type your question in the same line. 

Example: “+poll Do you like using Poll Bot?”

The poll will look like this: “+poll Do you like using Poll Bot?”

Once you have entered this, you will see your question show up on the channel as a poll, with “Thumbs up,” “thumbs down,” and “maybe” reaction buttons below.

Hit “Shift+Enter” and tag “@everyone” in the line below to notify everyone on the server. You can add notes about the poll here as well. Users on your channel will be able to click the notification to read and react to your poll. 

If you forget any of your commands along the way, you can type in +help in a channel to see command instructions.

How to Create a Multi-Reaction Poll

For multi-choice reaction polls, you will use Square brackets [ ] around your question and curly brackets { } to separate each answer. 

Example: +poll {What did you eat for breakfast?} [Oatmeal] [Eggs] [Cereal]

The poll will then appear with your question and the answers listed below, beside alphabetical emoji buttons. It will look like this:

What did you have for breakfast?

  1. Oatmeal
  2. Eggs 
  3. Cereal 

How to Create a Straw Poll

To create a Strawpoll on Discord, type “+strawpoll {Your question} [answer 1] [answer 2] [answer 3]”.

You will see a reply pop up with a link to “Strawpoll.Me”. Channel members can then click on the link, which will take them to the Straw poll where they can vote.

The Strawpoll layout is the same idea as the multi-Choice poll on Discord, but with blank circles to click on instead of reactions.

When your Straw poll is complete, you can then share it on other platforms.

Conclusion

Bots sound difficult to use if you have never tried before, but learning Poll Bot on Discord is not hard.

Using Poll Bot’s Reaction, Multi-Reaction, and Straw polls, you can gather concise data from people through your servers in real-time. 

There are ways to create simple reaction polls without using bots by simply asking a question and offering two different reaction boxes for others to click on for their answer. However, you might find people using different emoji reactions than the ones you requested. Using a bot like Poll Bot makes things simpler.
