  1. Users can only vote for one option.

    Currently, users can vote for every poll option available. A user should be able to only vote for one option in a poll. If the user remove their vote from an option, they could still add it to another options. However, the user cannot add a vote to more than one option at a time.

    • Slack handles instead of email!!!!!

      The poll shows the prefix of the email and not the slack user handle, which make it very hard to organize

        • Proxy Vote feature

          We are using Simple Poll in our team. But someimes team member is in holiday or super busy and he/she can not join to poll.
          It would be nice to have a feature to delegate voting power to some another member.
          For example, if I want to delegate to my poll to memberA, I would edit slack status like "delegate to @memberA".
          Then simple poll counts memberA's poll as 2 poll.

          • mouse-less choices

            Allow a slack message to register as a poll choice (e.g. /poll --response 1) rather than having to take my fingers away from the keyboard and touch that funny thing that moves the pointer (mouse).

            • Argument to only allow 1 response per voter

              At times it would be nice to only allow 1 response per voter. "Radio Button" style instead of "Checkbox" style

              As it is now people occasionally choose multiple responses when it's not appropriate.

              • Blind polls!

                Different than anonymous, as only the poster gets info about how many people have voted for each option. Neither names nor numbers appear next to the options as people vote. Instead, perhaps a bot can notify the original poster of the totals (which gets updated each time someone votes). This would be good so that votes are not swayed by seeing other people's votes.

                  • Ability to clear a poll for re-use

                    Would like the ability to clear poll results so that the same poll could be used over and over. For agile teams, this would be a good use for pointing poker.

                    • Make it better looking and take up less space in the chat

                      No need to say "Simple Poll" down the bottom when it's already up the top. No need to have a Delete Poll button visible to all users.
                      Emoji and counter are different colours and designs, could make this look nicer. The question is also repeated unless the user deletes the command. Overall takes up much more room than a simple emoji react 'poll'

                                    I would be useful to have a library of polls to recall on demand, or schedule when to appear on a channel.
                                    (i.e. you could have polls for several food delivery menus. You could schedule the poll to chose where to eat and then based upon the votes you would recall just the poll for the menu of the restaurant most people voted)

                                      A poll should have an optional end time.

                                      When a poll has ended everyone could be notified of the results and people should no longer be able to modify their responses.
