Choosing the dates and times in your polls just got a lot easier and faster. Instead of selecting possible dates with our standard calendar and entering the times for each day manually you can now specify your dates and times using a detailed calendar. Select suitable times just by clicking, expanding and dragging within our new calendar plugin. It doesn’t get easier than that and of course it works on touchscreens too.
The old way of selecting your dates and times is of course still available. This is more suitable if you don’t want only to choose times but also want to specify other information (e.g. places) that your participants can take a vote on.

We hope that this will make the scheduling process for you and your participants even easier.
It is now easier to schedule meetings where the participants are located in different time zones. When you create a poll and define possible times for your meeting you can now also specify the time zone of the location where the meeting will take place.
This will allow your participants to automatically convert the suggested times to their respective time zones with a single click. This makes it easier for them to check their availability and to respond to your poll.

Dear Xoyondo users,
Xoyondo Dashboards are here. If you are the administrator and/or participant of multiple polls or message boards on Xoyondo the new Dashboard functionality will help you keep the overview. You can easily add all your active polls to a Dashboard which allows you to access the polls and the corresponding admin areas from a single website. Furthermore you are able to monitor properties and recent activities in your polls.
In order to add a poll to your Dashboard just insert the link of the poll or the admin link if you are the administrator into the corresponding field on the Dashboard website. If you already have a Dashboard new polls can be automatically added during the setup.
If you have suggestions how to further improve the new functionality we would be happy to hear about it. Please contact us by email, Facebook, Twitter or just leave a comment here.
Dear Xoyondo users,
we have improved the print functionality for meeting and opinion polls. You can now choose between two different views to print your poll. You can either print your poll using the usual tabular view or a condensed version which is suitable if there are many possible dates and times.
We also added a new notification feature that allows you to send an email to all the participants of your poll directly in the admin area. Please note that you can only use this feature if you invited your participants via Xoyondo.
If you have suggestions how to further improve Xoyondo, please let us know.
Dear Xoyondo users,
Due to the request of many of our users we added a new feature to Xoyondo: limited meeting polls. As administrator of a poll you can now limit the number of participants for each suggested date. If the limit for an option is reached it cannot be chosen any longer by the participants.
Limited meeting polls are useful if there is only a limited number of places for an event. Limited polls can therefore be used as registration form.
we added a new feature to our meeting polls. As creator of a poll you can now choose the option “Anonymous meeting poll”. If this option is active the participants in your poll won’t be able to see each others votes. Furthermore the voting result will be hidden. Only the administrator can view and manage all votes in the admin area. It is therefore important to keep the admin-link at a safe place since otherwise you won’t be able to see the voting result.
Anonymous meeting polls are useful if you want to keep the votes confidential or if you have a poll with many participants where it is not important that the participants see each others votes.
if you subscribed to email notifications about new entries in polls or new comments, you received so far an email for every new entry. This could lead to numerous emails for polls with many participants.
In order to reduce the number of notifications you will from now on receive only one email even if there are multiple new entries until you visit the poll via the link in the notification email.
We hope that this makes the scheduling process even more comfortable for you.

If you found the best day in your date poll or the best option in your opinion poll you can now finalize it. Just click on the ‘lock’-symbol in the admin area of your poll and mark the best date / best option as definitive. Your participants won’t be able to vote once your poll is locked. If something changes you can easily open it again afterwards and modify it in the usual way.
You can now also give your participants the possibility to import the chosen date directly in their Google/Yahoo/Outlook/Apple-calendars.
If you have any questions concerning this new feature, please contact us.
