  1. click Add New Box
  2. Give your box a name and select interactive poll as your content box type:

4.Add your poll question to the box

5. Use Edit Poll Choices to add possible responses.

6. Cick Process Choices to save.

7. Once you have published your guide and are getting responses, use View Results to see responses (you do not have to be logged into libguides to View Poll Results)

Guide Table of Contents Box

Unless your guide is a single page, it should include a table of contents. Use the Guide Table of Contents box type to automatically generate a linked table of contents that includes all your pages/tabs and sub-pages.

You'll find this box type under System Content Boxes
