Users create ballots for any use in minutes, and immediately notify voters in real time. Select an audience, create a title and include details or special instructions, set ballot settings, labels, and voting options, impose voting start and end times/dates, and set the permissions for viewing results, revoting or leaving comments.
MangoApps supports choosing from two types of content on every Ballot: Document or Person. A document allows voters to read and react on one or more attached documents, while the person option allows for voting for election of one or more people. The ballot type is determined by the use case, allowing for multiple choice (election style) or single choice (yes/no).
Votes that are cast are reported on the ballot results page, and are visible based on the visibility settings for when/who. The results are reported in two sections, results summary, and results detail by voter, and can be downloaded in an XLS format. The ballot creator, and admins can always view the results of a ballot when available.
Notifications ensure that ballot changes are communicated to users, allowing them to have control on the specific ballot notifications they wish to be notified about. A smart reminder automatically goes out to all voters (who have not voted yet) one day prior to ballot close date. If enabled, users can also comment on a ballot even if they are not a voter.
Voter lists can be auto-managed as per team membership, meaning as new members are added to the team, they are automatically added as a voter to open ballots in that team. Members who are removed from a team will also lose their ability to vote on a ballot. Custom voter lists can also be created to house a specific list of team members, which will not be auto-managed.
In some cases despite participation of users, the voted results of a ballot may not be conclusive enough to make a decision. Ballots in these cases can be re-circulated to gather new votes based on any additional or updated information or voting options. Re-circulated ballots are only available to members who previously voted.
