FAQ


What is the bot prefix?

The bot prefix is / (slash).
EasyPoll listens exclusively to Discord SlashCommands. For all commands use /help.

Can I change the bot prefix?

Unfortunately, the bot prefix cannot be changed.
Discord has introduced SlashCommands to have consistent commands across all bots.
Therefore a change is not possible. In the future all bots will listen to SlashCommands, so to the prefix / (slash).

Can I change the language?

Yes. The bot is available in multiple languages.
To see all available languages and change the language, use the command /setup language on your server.

Where can I find the poll id?

You can find the poll id in the footer area of each poll.

How can I give certain people bot rights without admin?

Create a role with the name PollCreator. Users with the role can create polls.

How can I see which member voted for what?

To see which member voted for what, just go to the poll message, click on the three dots and select Reactions.
A window will open where you can see exactly which member has voted for what.

View reactions

info

Please note that in anonymous polls the users are anonymous and therefore cannot be viewed.

How can I see who voted for what on an anonymous poll?

As the name suggests, anonymous polls are anonymous. It is not possible to see who voted for what.
As an alternative, the poll type "Hidden" is available, which gives the possibility to see who voted for what.
Learn more about the different poll types.

How can I show the final result in the poll?

To display the final result in the poll message, the poll must be closed.
To close a poll use /closepoll or right click => Apps => Close this poll.

tip

To see the current result without closing the poll, use /listpolls

warning

Apps are currently only available in the desktop version of Discord.
(Mobile use the /closepoll command)

Why does the bot vote for all options?

The bot must react with all possible reaction emojis when creating the poll so that members can easily click on them.
Otherwise, members would not see the reactions and would not be able to vote or would have to search for the reaction themselves.
This is a limitation of Discord, there is nothing we can do to change it.
Because there is a vote from the bot on all of them, the results are not affected and can be read easily.
Of course, the vote is not counted in closed polls!
