December Update - Poll Quizzes, Opinion Scale, Star Rating and Much More...

As earnest as ever, our product team has brought about another set of updates to the Outgrow app to make it more functional and useful for our customers. Here’s a quick run down of the awesome new stuff we’ve just launched inside the platform.

Poll Quiz - Get Insights and Feedback From your Users via Outgrow

You can now create real-time surveys/polls with Outgrow. We call this one the hero update!

Outgrow Polls

Surveys let you seek opinion from your audience about your product or service. You can use this quiz type to get insights into their needs and demands and take their feedback about your products and services. Take CSS Tricks, for instance. The brand regularly uses polls to stir discussions. Or this poll from Kwanzoo - it’s a perfect example of using polls to create a buzz of niche-specific topics.

Another way you can use poll quizzes is to get some viral buzz going around your company just like Buzzfeed.

If you’re an Outgrow user, you can create a poll quiz by going to the dashboard and selecting Poll Quiz from the Create an Experience menu.

Not an Outgrow user? Sign up to create polls along with quizzes and calculators. It’s free to start!

Opinion Scale & Star Rating

Soliciting opinions from your users can get you valuable insights, which can result in improved decision making and better results. You can now use opinion scale and star rating (a visual form of the opinion scale where you can select an icon of your choice to indicate rating) to record responses for any of your Outgrow experiences.

You can find these options under the questions tab on the right sidebar in the builder.

If you’re using rating, you also get the option to change the icon. Here’s how you can do that -

Note: This feature is available for all Outgrow templates (with the exception of The Greek).

Header and Footer for Templates

Not sure if a calculator or quiz embed works well in your case? Don’t fret! You can now add header and footer to your interactive experiences to give it the look and feel of a web page.You can also add multiple links to different site pages, thus giving your users access to a lot more.

You’ll find this option under the Display Settings. Simply toggle the buttons ‘on’ and the sections will be added to your experience.

Note- This feature is currently not available for Londoner and Tokyo templates.
