How To: Create A Poll Within A Group on LinkedIn

Here’s a really neat feature we discovered on LinkedIn this morning – as a member of a group on LinkedIn, you can now start a poll amongst your group members as well as a discussion. So now if you want to get a real debate going within a group and ask fellow opinion on a particular topic, group members can respond to your discussion in poll format really simply and easily by selecting their answer. Done and done.

So, here’s how to do it:

  1. Log in to LinkedIn and go in to your chosen group. How To: Create a Poll in a LinkedIn Group - Step 1
  2. At the top of the group main page, you’ll see above the Discussion box “Discussion” and “Poll”. Fairly obvious, click “Poll”.How To: Create a Poll in a LinkedIn Group - Step 2
