Organizers now have more control over their voting participation in polls they create. By default, they are automatically marked as having voted "YES" for all date/time options within the poll. However, organizers have the flexibility to change this and remain unvoted if they prefer.

Nov 2023

Sync with your Google Calendar

Our new feature lets you sync your suggested date/time options with your Google Calendar, ensuring you are never double-booked. Your date/time suggestions will be gently placed as "holds" in your Google Calendar, preventing any scheduling clashes. Once you've chosen the perfect time for your event, the "holds" will vanish, leaving only the confirmed time slot. And to make things even sweeter, you can easily add your guests to the confirmed Google Calendar event, making it a breeze to keep everyone in the loop.

This is a Premium feature.

Nov 2023

Our theme selection keeps growing!

We are constantly adding new themes to our collection based on your feedback. The new themes this time include friends, concert, tacos, chili, meeting, gala, dungeons and dragons and more.

Oct 2023

Vote count added to table view

We are constantly working to improve our site and its usability and welcome your feedback. For those of you who prefer the table view to view the results, we’ve added the vote count to give a quick summary of how many have voted "yes" for any particular date/time option.

Oct 2023

Add guest by name only

Have you ever wanted to add someone to your poll without sending them an invitation? Maybe it is your grandparents who verbally told you when worked for them or your boss whose schedule you manage. Whatever it is, you might want to complete the guest list in your poll and now you can! Simply add them and their votes to your poll using their names only.

This is a Premium feature.

Sep 2023

Duplicate polls

We are excited to announce a new feature that allows you to duplicate polls! This means that you can easily create a new poll based on an existing poll. This can be helpful for a variety of purposes, such as creating a poll with the same date/time options but for different audience.

To duplicate a poll, simply go to the poll that you want to duplicate and click on the Duplicate poll link in the poll setting menu. You can then make any changes that you want to the new poll.

This is a Premium feature.

Aug 2023

Better table view

We've made the table view on desktop wider to make it easier to read. The table now utilizes more of the screen width, so you can see more date and time options at once.

Screenshot showing a table view
Aug 2023

Sending messages when guests are hidden

We’ve enabled private messages to the organizer from any guest in the poll regardless if the guest entered an email address or not. If the guest did provided an email address then the organizer can reply directly to the email.

Aug 2023

Themes

New background theme images that were added this time include holidays, robots, superheroes, food, halloween, carnival, sports and more.

Aug 2023

Default RSVP view

Do you prefer the Table view but whenever you view a poll you have to start by selecting your favorite view? On desktop, no longer. Now the view you selected last time will be remembered and made into your default view for any poll you view. You can of course still switch between the available views to get the details you need.

Jun 2023

Additional themes

We added themes for travel, choir, games, genealogy, pickleball, rock climbing, hiking, celebration, and more, as well as a few neutral backgrounds and patterns.

Apr 2023

Limit votes per date/time option

For "Yes only" polls, the organizer can limit the number of guest who can vote for a date/time option. The limit can be set individually for each date/time or the same for all options. This is a premium feature.

Screenshot showing limit votes per date/time option
Apr 2023

Limit guest count

The organizer can limit the number of guests in a poll. This is most useful if the organizer shares a link to a poll and the guests are adding themselves to that poll. The organizer can now put a cap on how many guests can add themselves to the poll. This is a premium feature.

Apr 2023

More theme options

We added many more background templates, e.g. business & money, baby, badminton, workout, eid al-fitr, princess, and animals. See the thumbnails of all the new themes here:

Mar 2023

iCal file added to email

When the organizer picks the final date/time option for an event the email that gets sent to the guests now includes an iCal file. That makes it easier for the recipients to add the picked date/time to their calendar.

Jan 2023

New look on desktop

We’ve update the layout on the RSVP page for desktop to make the date options stand out more.

Screenshot showing the new RSVP layout

We also added a compact view which omits showing the poll results to make it easier for guests to enter their votes.

Dec 2022

Message section and guest names

We made a minor update to the layout of the messages section and in the process we also added that the messages display how long ago they were posted.

The organizer has had the ability to change his guests’ names but now the guests can do that themselves. The organizer can keep track of name changes in the change history log.

Dec 2022

Apr 2022

YES‐MAYBE‐NO

Choose the rsvp voting options your guests have for your poll. Don’t want the indecisive "maybe" responses? Only care about the actual "yes" replies? Now you can adjust the settings when you create a poll and pick YES/MAYBE/NO, YES/NO, or the YES only option.

Mar 2022

Poll change history

Feb 2022

24-hour time format & start of week Monday

We are listening to your feedback, and have now added a 24-hour time format! In the calendar view, you can choose between a 12-hour (1:00 PM) and a 24-hour (13:00) time format.

Does your week start on a Sunday or a Monday? Now you can simply switch the calendar between starting the week on a Sunday or a Monday, depending on your preference. Also, if you are so inclined, you can choose to include the calendar week number as well.

We hope that the additional calendar customization and time format setting will make your planning easier!

Search for the Right Theme

With our growing theme selection we wanted to make it easier for you to find the right theme for your event.

Dec 2021

Nov 2021

Adding Guests Upgrade

The section for adding guests to your poll has received a facelift. We’ve separated the two ways of adding guests to your poll to make the options clearer. Either you share the poll with a general link (the shareable link) and your guests add themselves to your poll or you enter the guests yourself in the poll and each guest receives a unique link in an email. We’ve added more text within the sections for each method to explain how this works.

Download Poll Data

We’ve added an option for premium polls to download the poll data in a CSV format.

Any poll can be upgraded to a premium poll either with the OneTime Premium upgrade or with the Premium subscription. Downloading the poll data is currently available on the web only.

June 2021

Better event details

We’ve learned from your feedback that the event details field did not allow for enough content. We’ve improved on that so now you can include all the details you want!

Did you miss something in your event details and you’ve already shared the poll? Don’t worry! Starting from our latest release, you can also edit the details anytime after you create the poll.
