I love the new poll feature that was added. I work for a non-profit shelter and use Constant Contact to keep in touch with my volunteers.
Previously, I would use the e-mail to list available volunteer shifts and my volunteers would have to e-mail me back what they wanted to do.
With the new poll feature they can now just click on the shifts that they want and it's a lot easier for them. The only drawback is that multiple volunteers can click to respond to a shift for one, and then I have to e-mail and let the later responders know the shift has been filled.
Do you think it would be possible to make a limiter on how many times someone can click on a poll response? For example if I create the poll "2 Dog kennel cleaners needed Tuesday, the 4th" and then the first 2 people to click it would get the response "Congratulations, your response is recorded" and the next 3 to click after that got the response "Thank you for responding, but this response is now closed."
It could be useful in a number of ways. With a limiter like that you could run sweep stakes and other things for businesses too and maybe that would help with customer engagement. For example a business could run the poll "First 5 to reply to this survery question win 1 free coffee" and then the first 5 that clicked would get the instant message that they won. The others would know immediately that they did not, kind of like those soda pop games where you have to check the top to see if you are a winner. Customers could eagerly look for the next e-mail they receive to try to be the first to click for a prize or something. And non-profits would be able to use it to schedule volunteers.
What do you all think? Wouldi t be possible to get a limiter for poll responses like that?
