More flexibility with RSVP and Poll buttons

It would be nice if the RSVP and poll buttons were more dynamic and customizable. I am trying to gauge interest for an event from my community. However, the RSVP option requires a start and end date for the event, which in my case, is not yet planned. When I try to use the poll option, the font size of the polling question is small, and there is no option to change it. The buttons for the poll have a rather simple and unattractive look as well, and I wish I could move the buttons and change their size the way I want. 


It would be great to have more customization options with the survey. I.e. changes the text in the buttons, size of buttons, if/what window pops up when they press a button, and just the overall layout of the question and answer options.

We wish to send out a poll to a large group to see if there is intrest but I don't have the date set-- that's why I am sending the poll. How do I remove the date which seems to be required so I can just let them know it will be sometime in October 2019. We are in the prelimiary steps of planning for this event.

Your prompt reply is appreciated as other facilitators need to know as well for planning purposes.

Is there any way to use a poll (or anything) where they can select multiple options and submit? For example, "Which kinds of emails would you like to receive?", and they could select multiple options and submit their response instead of selecting one, being sent to a web page, then having to go back to email to choose another..


I agree - the RSVP on the campaign side needs to improve. I want to allow my invitees to invite additional guests. The only way I can do this is to switch to creating an event and that format seems so basic and archaic as far as design capabilities go. It's frustrating. I have a nice email creating on the campaign side and it looks like I have to send out an event email that doesn't allow me to add photos, etc. It won't grab the attention of my audience as well. I wish event was just a "button" you could add to the campaign - not a separate formate altogether. 


If I'm missing something, would love feedback. thanks, kara


Is it possible to change the color of the lettering or the font in the RSVP block?


We must have this function added. For those of us who have branded fonts and colors, polls look out of place when added to a newsletter. They look blocky and unprofessional.  We need to have additional options when designing polls. 


- Action Item: Add customization for Poll function. Add additional colors, fonts, and poll layouts.

Hi there,


I have a suggestion on how you can upgrade your services. When I use the RSVP block to put in an email, I love the tool because it is quick and easy for me to get responses back. The only thing I wish I could edit is the font and size of the wording in the block. When the lettering in the block doesn't match the style or font in the entire email, it doesn't flow well together. If you could make that switch to where we can edit the font and size, that would be fantastic.
