Free-text answer / Open-ended question
Polls are great for structured questions, but in the annual awards we run they start with an open 'nominations' process, where a free-text input is required. The current option for 'other' doesn't really work for us in that scenario and I'd really like to be able to keep members within Wild Apricot rather than have to go and use Survey Monkey or something. Thanks for listening!
Important would be Likert scale questions.

It would be very helpful to have the option of a free form text box for ope-ended responses instead of mandatory radio buttons or check boxes. We do not want to provide answers for our members in many of our polls/surveys. The other survey platforms all have this option. thank you -

There should be more types of questions that you can use in a poll, like open-ended questions with a lot of text, one-word answers, etc.
I also am looking for a write in option exactly like what I am doing here. I want an open comment box that the poll can say "what else would you like to see at our conference" and then an open text box for their answer without any radio buttons or check boxes required.
Katya, I interpreted this to mean:
A question type that allows a free text answer. Rather than Multiple Choice, Yes or No?
Example question: Please tell the us what you’d like to see on this website. (Free text comment, character limit ###)
I would like: 1. A FAQ page about the organization. 2. A description of how the Privacy part of my Profile works. 3. Photos from the last seminar.
Hope this is what J. Rozak meant. Hope it helps you Katya.
The suggestion is unclear. I’m not sure I fully understand it.
Can someone please elaborate on it with some examples?
#1 When using the other/suggestion field, it would be nice to add some text to this. Currently, it just states "Other:".
#2 If "other" is used, you should be able to limit the radial choices to 1 and the "other" is the 2nd radial button.

It wold be useful to allow a "write in portion" of the poll for comments

It would be really nice if the survey had all the fields available as event registration fields.
