Mixmax Polls & Surveys

Mixmax Polls and Surveys make it easy to get quick, direct, and structured replies back from your recipients.

Polls enable you to ask a question and have the recipients pick one option among several. They’re great for quick answers to simple questions, because your recipients don’t need to write a reply. They just click a button, and their response is sent directly back to you.

Q&A Surveys help you ask focused questions and make it easy for recipients to respond exactly to your questions using free-form text. When a recipient answers your survey, you receive the response immediately via email. They’re great for customer support, dealing with suppliers, or just getting straight answers.
