Admin Settings

Settings available to control Polls at a team level

Like all Proper features, Polls offer granular admin settings and approvals.

See this page for global admin settings.

From the admin setting modal for any feature, use the overflow menu at the top to navigate to another feature.

Any Proper major feature can be enabled or disabled using the checkbox in the second panel of its admin settings modal.


App or workspace admin approval can optionally be required for users to:

  • Start a new poll

  • Modify a poll

    Only workspace admins and app admins, not the poll's owner(s) will be able to modify a poll without approval.

  • End a poll

    Only workspace admins and app admins, not the poll's owner(s) will be able to end a poll without approval.

If approval is required for a user action, the user is able to select which admin(s) will receive an approval request message.

  • Only one admin needs to approve or deny each request.

  • When an admin approves or denies a request, other admins and the requesting user will be notified.

Workspace admins and app admins do not need to seek approval for these actions.

Channel restrictions

A list of public channels can be defined where approval is always required.

Polls in these public channels may still require approval depending on your settings. Polls can be conducted in any private channel but are still subject to your approval settings.

User permissions

A list of users can be defined that can use polls without needing to seek approval.

Workspace admins and app admins already have this capability.


Anonymous and/or identified polls can be enabled.

Users will be able to choose the type when creating a poll if more than one option is selected.

This setting applies to the identities of the poll's creator, any other owners, and all respondents.
